Miami Beach, FL – Former State Representative, City Commissioner, and Assistant State Attorney Mike Grieco — current frontrunner in the race for Mayor of Miami Beach – is hitting the airwaves this week with a brand-news TV ad that is set to take center stage during the RNC debate on Wednesday night. With less than 90 days remaining until Election Day, this strategic move amplifies Grieco’s trusted leadership and his commitment to tackle traffic challenges by appointing the first Chief Traffic Officer.
“From serving as our Assistant State Attorney to serving in the State House, I have spent the past decade fighting for the residents of Miami Beach and their trust by always delivering on the promises made,” says Mike Grieco. “I have a clear, comprehensive plan to get things done on the issues that matter, like keeping our community safe, giving residents a voice in City Hall, flooding problems, stopping overdevelopment and addressing our traffic through the appointment of the first ever Chief Traffic Officer.”
In Tallahassee, Mike Grieco fought to save homeowners money, expanded protections for stalking victims, and funded Holocaust education in our schools. Over four years in the Legislature, he brought back tens of millions of dollars for Miami Beach, including millions for stormwater resilience projects to stop flooding. As an elected official, Grieco pledged to always be accountable to the voters, and he meant it: when Mike Grieco was elected to serve as City Commissioner in 2013, he took the door to his office off its hinges so that he could hear directly from residents.
Before politics, Mike served our community as a prosecutor in the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office, focused mostly on gang and narcotics enforcement, working to keep kids and communities safe from dangerous criminals. He went on to lead as a supervising Felony Division Chief, and then opened his own boutique law practice, providing quality representation for our community.
Throughout his career, Mike has been deeply involved in local nonprofit efforts, having previously sat on the Adrienne Arsht Center Trust Board of Directors and the President’s Cabinet for the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital Foundation, and currently serving on the Board of Governors for the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce. He is also a long-time supporter of Mount Sinai Hospital, NSU-UM Autism Center and SAVE LGBT. Mike lives in Miami Beach with his better-half Christine, his son, and their french bulldog, Zeus.
