Marlon Hill (South Miami-Dade, FL) issued the following statement, “With the transition of leadership in Miami-Dade County, South Miami-Dade County residents should no longer be neglected on the issues that matter the most to us, including economic and food security, affordable housing, traffic gridlock, and public safety. The District deserves a commissioner who will connect the various community pockets of our region and take action to ensure we are no longer neglected”.
