Miami flooding

For residents of downtown, Brickell and the Grove, last Tuesday morning was a prime example of Miami’s cognitive dissonance.

As the “king tide” caused water to overflow from storm drains into the streets, and construction snarled traffic, it made it obvious to folks that Miami is thriving.

While we must reckon with a cityscape littered with cranes and streets ground to a halt by traffic, our future is almost certainly one that must deal with sea level rise and recurring flooding. We are prospering, but smart growth should be our priority.

And that’s why I’m voting for Ken Russell for District 2 commissioner. At a recent forum, Ken was the only candidate to call for bringing “new ways of thinking” into our leadership.

Each vote for Ken Russell is a vote to move Miami forward.

Stormy Suarez,

Coconut Grove
