Our Village is being overrun by high density apartment buildings towering over our once quaint, peaceful bedroom community. I will lead the way in minimizing growth and keeping any required growth in character with our Village.
HAS ALWAYS CHAMPIONED PALMETTO BAY AND HAS THE RECORD TO PROVE IT!
"The current administration has lost its way. The Village policies run in stark contrast from the quaint, peaceful bedroom community our Village was always meant to be. As your next Mayor, I will draw from our original vision and return to the principles that made our Village a great place to live and raise a family." - EUGENE FLINN
Traffic congestion threatens our Village’s quality of life. As Mayor, I will work with Miami-Dade County and other agencies to develop a “Traffic Relief Plan” that offers meaningful short and long-term solutions to our traffic problems.
Higher property taxes and fee increases are hurting our residents. We must stop digging into tax-payer pockets to offset the Village's poor management decisions. Instead, I will cut wasteful spending, including endless litigation bills, and lower property taxes and Village fees.
I'M RUNNING FOR MAYOR OF PALMETTO BAY BECAUSE YOU AND YOUR FAMILY DESERVE BETTER!
