my mission


With our ever-changing demographics, we must review the options available to the residents of Aventura in the area of education for elementary, middle, and high school.

The City Commission and City Manager comprise the Executive Board of our charter school (ACES). Therefore, as commissioner, I will make sure we review the qualification process and allow more of our residents to attend our A-rated schools while keeping our classes small by restricting out-of-area students. Also, as commissioner, I will help research new alternatives for additional school options.


is my number one priority We should continue to take meaningful measures to support our Aventura Police Force thus ensuring better community safety.


This is not a new issue.  We must find ways to ease traffic at peak hours.
We need to expand the "freebee’s" services so residents can commute within Aventura at no charge. 

Responsible Development and Redevelopment

Update existing communities and run-down shopping plazas, re-evaluate, upcoming projects and existing infrastructure. Make sure any new projects bring added value to our city and benefit our residents.

Fiscal Responsibility

Communication with the City Manager is essential to make sure that our tax dollars are allocated efficiently and keeping our property taxes low.

To lead is to Listen, therefore I am open to hear your ideas, your wants and needs and will work towards our common goal.
