Rosy Palomino files for City of Miami District 2 Commissioner

Rosy Palomino, activist and community leader files for City of Miami District 2 Commissioner

Palomino calls for a return to a “leadership that cares” about “We the People.”

HeadshotMIAMISept. 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, limited 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.”

Letter to the Editor about Water Quality

Put agreed-to plan into action

Published in the Sun Sentinel newspaper

As a Republican and a candidate for the Florida House, I need to alert your readers to the dangers of the “algae bloom.” Florida is now facing the worst case of “algae bloom” water contamination in its history. In my rare case, I lost a twin pregnancy and almost died from a systemic algae infection after swimming with family in Biscayne Bay.

The responsibility for this crisis is with every level of government. The federal government manages the waters of Lake Okeechobee, the state manages the waters everywhere else and the runoff comes from urban areas regulated by county and municipal governments.

We have the comprehensive solution to the problem of algae bloom. In 2000, President Clinton and Gov. Jeb Bush signed a $7.8 billion pact to fix our outdated and inadequate water management system — it needs to be implemented.

My twins would have turned 11 this year.
