Shell Lumber Press Conference with Governor Scott

Last week, Governor Rick Scott visited Miami-Dade County to announce his $1 billion tax cut package. The governor’s tax cut package can potentially further diversify our local economy -- which is a major priority of mine as Mayor -- and serve as another safeguard for our great state against another economic downturn.

I thank Governor Scott for supporting job creation in our county and throughout the state. My administration and I look forward to working with Governor Scott to make Florida the “small business capital of the world” and to further diversify and safeguard our economy.

Cities for Citizenship Initiative

On Tuesday, Nov. 10, Miami-Dade County joined the national Cities for Citizenship Initiative.Miami-Dade County is the first County to join nearly twenty cities across the country in Cities for Citizenship, a national campaign aimed to increase citizenship among eligible U.S. permanent residents.

Mayor Carlos A. Gimenez, Board of County Commissioners Chairman Jean Monestime and Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava with support from the Florida Immigrant Coalition and Citi also announced the creation of the Office of New Americans of Miami-Dade County (ONA-MDC) to connect eligible immigrants with the resources to naturalize, as well as receive financial and legal counseling.

To mark the beginning of this initiative, a citizenship ceremony took place at the Miami-Dade Library Main Branch, where 30 candidates were sworn in as citizens. See photos from the press conference and citizenship ceremony
