Alex Penelas' Vision

Alex Penelas’ passion for public service has always been about improving people's lives through a bold agenda that delivers impactful results. The challenges we faced in the past in Miami-Dade required us to be innovative and unafraid. Today, we face a new set of challenges and unfortunately some that have lingered because of inaction.
Penelas is committed to bringing the bold leadership needed to deliver concrete results. The issue that most motivated his return to public service is the lack of meaningful progress on mass transportation. He will be laser focused on transit and mobility projects along several of our proposed corridors. The half-penny Sales Tax passed by voters in 2002 will be spent as it was intended – to build-out mass transit and rail throughout Miami-Dade.
We will confront our climate change challenges and lead the world in confronting this threat with strategy, technology, and the best science. We will take advantage of all the County government’s resources and partner with the private sector to bring affordability to our housing market. We will take on the inequities that exist throughout our community by creating policies that level the playing field in terms of access and opportunity for those that have been shut out so far and safety for those who are bearing the brunt of gun violence. And we will address other important issues that are ignored, like mental health.
Penelas will work to earn your trust through the substance of his policy ideas. He will work to earn your support for his vision and leadership.
