Mayor's Week in Review

Week in Review 11.26.2014

Giving Thanks by Giving Back

While the holiday season offers us a time to celebrate with family and friends, it is also a time to share our many blessings with others in our community. Yesterday, I stood side-by-side with Winn-Dixie executives and distributed turkeys to pre-registered, low-income families at Winn-Dixie stores in Miami-Dade County. I am proud to partner with our friends at Winn-Dixie to help so many families in need. Both government and the private sector have a shared responsibility to be catalysts of compassion in the community. I was humbled by the opportunity to be part of bringing holiday cheer to families in need.


A New Chairman is Elected

 This week, six commissioners were sworn in during an installation ceremony that was highlighted by a history-making moment. Following the ceremony, the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners unanimously elected Jean Commission Monestime, District 2, as Commission Chairman of the 13-member board, the first Haitian-American to hold this seat. In addition, Commissioner Esteban Bovo, District 13, was the unanimous choice for Vice Chairman. They assume their new responsibilities Jan. 1, 2015.

Commissioner Monestime was also sworn into office along with Commissioner Sally A. Heyman, District 4; Commissioner Rebeca Sosa, District 6; Commissioner-elect Daniella Levine Cava, District 8; Commissioner Javier D. Souto, District 10; and, Commissioner Jose “Pepe” Diaz, District 12.

Monestime and Bovo are true American success stories. Their unanimous selections are proof that common ground can be attained in a community as diverse as ours. I commend their colleagues for working together in this important show of unity.
