Miami Beach, Fla. – Mike Grieco for Miami Beach Mayor is hitting the airwaves this week with a compelling new TV ad telling voters why, as a father and demonstrated public servant, his fight for a safer, more prosperous, and resilient Miami Beach is personal. With just one month remaining until Election Day, Grieco remains committed to communicating with voters about the issues that matter most, including addressing the traffic crisis, and ensuring every child has a bright and safe future.
“Being a public servant means being deeply connected to the community, and my commitment to Miami Beach goes beyond politics,” says Mike Grieco. “Raising my own family in Miami Beach, my mission is to ensure that every family has the opportunity to live in a safe, free, and prosperous community.”
In Tallahassee, Mike Grieco championed efforts to save homeowners money, expanded protections for stalking victims, and secured funding for Holocaust education in schools. Mike fought for our community to have local control over local issues, and brought back tens of millions of dollars for Miami Beach, including millions for stormwater resilience projects to help stop flooding. As an elected official, Mike Grieco pledged to always be accountable to the voters, and he meant it: when he was elected to serve as City Commissioner in 2013, he even took the door to his office off its hinges so he could hear directly from residents with zero barriers.
“Over the past decade, I have served the people of Miami-Dade as an Assistant State Attorney and Representative in the Florida Legislature,” says Mike Grieco. “As Mayor, my promise is simple: we will get things done for our residents and solve pressing issues like public safety, traffic congestion, flooding, and overdevelopment.”
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.
