Message from the Manager: Proud to Serve You
I remember biking as a child all the way from my home near SW 80th Street and Red Road over the Rickenbacker Causeway and onto Key Biscayne. I have always loved the beauty of the beaches and parks here, and that’s why I’m so excited to have been selected as your Village Manager.
Since I started in August, I’ve been getting to know Key Biscayne as an adult with a kid’s enthusiasm. I’ve explored on bike and foot, and so far I’ve learned that this is an engaged, inspired, and innovative community. We have big ideas here and my goal is to see them come to fruition.
First, I want to see the Village progress, and at the same time, protect its proud past. As such, I will continue the Council-Manager form of government Key Biscayne was founded on, in which the Council sets policy and the Manager and staff implement it. I’m excited by the fact that the Village already has an experienced and talented team in place. I have tremendous respect for their knowledge and professional opinions.
Second, I believe public outreach and effective communication with residents is essential when embarking on transformative projects. I strongly encourage residents to share ideas and insights, criticisms and concerns with me. I have an open-door policy and am ready to listen.
Key Biscayne is an absolute treasure. Working together, we can keep it that way. I will get everything done that I can with my heart, with my mind and with the support of our amazing staff. I’m grateful for this opportunity. I will not let you down.
