Doral has now come to a crossroad in our history, for the first time in November 2012 we will elect a new mayor and three new Council Members, 4/5′s of the total council, which could have serious impacts on the direction and quality of life in our Beloved City.
Our city has made tremendous progress over the past several years; a world class park and recreation system, green and beautiful landscaping through-out, a great Comprehensive Master Plan that allows for planned and orderly growth, provisioning of 50 linear miles of bikeways and canal restoration, free city run Trolley system, etc., yet as the song goes,” We have only just begun”.
The growth potential in Doral over the next decade or two is exponential, presently there are numerous multi-million dollar major development projects in progress and more yet to come. The ensuing potential impact on our infrastructure, roads, parks, schools, traffic etc., will be significant, but manageable if planned and executed well! The issue of Casino Gambling is also looming large and could impact our city if our leaders are not vigilant! Effectively dealing with planned Annexation and getting our fair share of the County’s ½ cent transportation tax, must also be a high priority.
This is why we should be concerned, the magnitude of the issues we will face require that we elect people with a shared Vision of Quality of Life, with strong Business and Financial expertise, high integrity and the leadership qualities to deal with these significant issues, “For All the Right Reasons”.
I believe that my previous time on the council (serving as Vice Mayor), along with an extensive executive business background in finance and corporate real estate management with AT&T and Lucent Technologies, has uniquely prepared me to deal with the many challenges and issues facing our city. I have a proven record of leadership, vision and integrity and will serve our community well!
I humbly ask for your support in my candidacy for Doral City Council. Any contribution and / or offer to volunteer to help in the campaign are graciously appreciated!
If you have any questions about me or my candidacy please call me at 305 613-5690 or by email: Robertvn2012@att.net
Please help spread the word … Thank you for your friendship and support.
