Happy New Year



It’s 2019, Happy New Year! Each year end we reflect on our decisions in an attempt to confirm if they were sound, fruitful and most of all sustainable.  The new year is the perfect opportunity to review our results both professional and personal and plan for the upcoming year.  2019 is personally a very important year for me, March 12th is Election Day in Miramar and I will be one of the Candidates vying for Commissioner Seat #4.  

The theme for my campaign is “Let’s Move Forward Together.” I sincerely believe that Miramar would benefit from my role as Commissioner in its future.  I love this City and my work in business, accounting, and public service over the last three decades will be of great service to our citizens. I have always aspired to be in representational politics and I have found a home in Miramar. A place with growth potential, a vast diversity in culture and the best opportunity to work and build together.  


I would like to share my dream with you through my “Manifesto for Miramar.” Keep in mind that this Manifesto is an expression of my vision of the future for Miramar shaped by my conversations with you, the residents, over the past year. It is also shaped by the City’s original development plans and provides a solid foundation for an already forward-thinking community.  My goal is to further build on this foundation with you. This Manifesto is therefore not static, it’s open to your suggestions and will express an active, participatory approach to governance.
