- Sept. 19, 2019
-- The 2018 Republican candidate for State Representative, District 112 and President of Douglas Park Neighborhood Association, Rosa Maria "Rosy" Palomino filed this late afternoon for City of Miami District 2 Commissioner to unseat incumbent Ken Russell. Her candidacy is expected to shake up the race by adding a pro-market, smaller government voice and return the District 2 commissioner seat back to "We the People." Election Day is November 5, 2019.
Ms. Palomino was inspired to run after receiving a disappointing mailer showing a paltry few accomplishments the incumbent could point to after 4 years in office (see a link to the mailer below). She explains, "Has he been too distracted with personal adventures to collect a decent list of accomplishments in 4 years of being in office? His latest political mailer shows a list of accomplishments that looks more like a wish list."
Describing her deep connections to the community and why it needs a fighter like her, "I am the President of the Douglas Park Neighborhood Association which represents the many homes and condos surrounding the 10-acre Douglas Park. I was raised and have lived in this area most of my adult life. This is where I own my home free and clear. I have a lot of history in this district and in this city. It's the only place I've ever called home. No one, not even Mr. Russell, is better equipped to understand the needs of District 2."
Ms. Palomino leaves a parting thought to voters, "Let's be clear, in this election there will be someone representing local neighbors and small businesses."
