DORAL ( January 28, 2019 ) – Juan C. Zapata, former county commissioner, and former state legislator filed to run for Miami-Dade mayor today. “#ItsTime to get county government truly working for its residents and transform an antiquated government structure that fails to address the present and future needs of our community,” he said as he turned in his paperwork.
As a commissioner, Zapata tirelessly fought to maximize taxpayer resources, increase police presence, protect the unincorporated areas, strengthen the county’s infrastructure, institute innovative policies and advocate for viable transit solutions. #ItsTime to bring a true spirit of public service back to county hall and lay out a vision for the future of Miami-Dade County.
Zapata will focus on keeping our residents safe, protecting our environment, improving mobility, and addressing the inequality and affordability issues that exist in our community. His broad public service experience, along with his reputation as a servant leader, positions him as the best choice for Mayor to bring about responsible prosperity and innovative solutions to Miami-Dade County. #ItsTime.
