January/February 2016
I delivered my annual State of the County Address on Wednesday, Jan. 27 at the Miami-Dade County Auditorium. Miami-Dade County is moving forward together and we are not looking back. The state of our County is strong and together, we are making it stronger and building upon the foundation we have laid for a better future for our children and grandchildren. Read my State of the County Address.

My Brother's Keeper Action Summit

The "My Brother's Keeper" Community Challenge is an initiative to encourage community leaders across the nation to develop plans to improve life outcomes and create opportunities for all young people. The challenge is a call to action for communities to develop strategies to close educational and opportunity gaps so that all students graduate from high school and college, career-ready. Miami-Dade County accepted President's Obama's community challenge because it directly aligns with the County's existing initiatives such as our Head Start Program, the Joint Roundtable on Youth Safety, Youth Summer Job Program, Employ Miami-Dade and many others, to improve the quality of life for our community.

I would like to thank Congresswoman Wilson for partnering with us to bring "My Brother's Keeper" to Miami-Dade County.

Venetian Bridge Ribbon Cutting

The historic Venetian Causeway is an important fixture in our community -- connecting mainland Miami with the Venetian Islands and Miami Beach. The $12.4-million restoration work began nine months ago and was completed on time and on budget.

The project involved the demolition of the Westernmost 730 feet of the West Venetian Bascule Bridge to extend its life another 60 years.
