Held at Tropical Park in South Miami, Levine Cava outlined the key initiatives she has embraced as the mayor of Miami-Dade County. Daniella Levine Cava was elected Miami-Dade County’s first-ever woman Mayor in November 2020. She entered the Mayor’s office following a nearly 40-year career as a relentless advocate for South Florida families in public service and elected leadership. As Miami-Dade County’s Mayor, she oversees a metropolitan government with nearly 30,000 employees serving nearly 3 million residents, managing an annual budget of approximately $10 billion.

Affordability & Housing
Miami-Dade residents must be able to afford to live here. The Mayor’s government is making historic investments to tackle the affordability crisis head on.
Strengthening Public Safety
While other major regions saw an increase in gun violence last year, Miami-Dade doubled down on successful programs that are preventing violence. Dade now has one of the lowest rates of gun violence of any major metro area in the country.
Innovation can happen anywhere. And by announcing the Miami-Dade Innovation Authority, the Mayor is working to make sure it happens right here in our County.
Building Our Economy
Being future-ready means building an economy that works for all: a thriving, inclusive economy that meets today’s challenges, and an innovation-driven, fast-paced economy that is ready for the future.
A world class County needs world class public transit for residents and visitors alike. Levine Cava is making good on long awaited promises and building the rails, buses, and roadways of tomorrow.
Preparing for a Resilient Future
As Miami-Dade weathers the frontline battle against the climate crisis, her resilience team prepares to be on the frontline of solutions.
