While growing up in Miami, Stephanie learned firsthand that her personal resilience and determination were an influential factor in her community’s survival and success. The families of District 5 have the same attributes.

Stephanie’s commitment to sustaining this RESILIENCY is attributed from FOUR key areas:


Pursue policies and advocate for investments to support the advancement of more workforce and affordable housing in collaboration with developers. I will also pursue healthcare facilities and other agencies through public, private partnerships (P3s) to invest in the community.


Advocate assisting businesses to invest in our community, in order to help create jobs and programs. I will also advocate for youth programs and encourage partnerships with organizations to be inclusive in the plans. I commit to also be vigilant in adopting or improve contingency plans to assist during a crisis by working in collaborations with organizations, local agencies, or state agencies.


Be vigilant in creating an environment of community policing that nurtures, build relationships with community stakeholders and law enforcement. Safety in our community deserves attention; we need to continue to find ways for our families to be safe. As your Commissioner, I will prioritize this.


I will bring knowledge of government, civic mobilization credentials, and philanthropic network to this leadership opportunity as a Commissioner on behalf of the residents and the City of Miami. I commit to being equitable across the board for the socioeconomic distinctions and revive stagnant communities. The voices of our constituents’ matter when consequential decisions are being conceptualized or created. And more importantly, help me sit at the dais to fight for what our community believes in.
