Miami Beach is my home and I’m raising my family here. I’m blessed to live and work in the South of Fifth neighborhood. I’m a private attorney now and former state prosecutor. Contrary to false attacks by the incumbent, I’ve been a registered voter in Miami Beach since 2002. I’ve been an active member of the community and served on the city’s Community Relations Board and the Police Citizens Relations Board.
As a commissioner, accountability and quality of life issues will be my priority. I’ll closely monitor the administration and hold the city manager accountable so that capital improvement projects are completed on budget, on time and with minimal adverse impact to residents and businesses. I’ll work to arrive at sensible and effective solutions to our flooding problem.
The scandals over the past several years have been an embarrassment to us all and I’ll have a zero-tolerance policy on government corruption. Unlike past inaction by the incumbent, the city manager will be held accountable for any corruption by city personnel and I’ll sponsor legislation to create an independent anti-corruption director position that reports directly to the city commission. It’s time we maintain a clear check and balance on the administration.
I’ve received overwhelming local community support. Unfortunately, the incumbent is already resorting to misleading and false attacks, and will use The Herald’s recommendation to legitimize his failed tenure on the commission. Unlike the incumbent, I’ll keep my promises and carry them through as a commissioner. Please visit my web site at michaelgrieco2013.com.
