We hit the ground running!!! On January 29th, I officially became your new PBA President, and right out of the gate there were a few surprises that we had to address. One being an Independent Review Board that would affect the entire County, but was clearly targeting the police department.
On January 29, 2018, your new PBA Board of Directors (BOD) took the oath of office, and along with the PBA staff, hit the ground running. I would like to introduce myself to those that do not know me. I have been employed by the Miami-Dade Police Department for 22 years and have worked in Miami Lakes, Northside and South Districts.
First and foremost, I would like to say thanks to all of you that believed it was time for change in the leadership of Dade County PBA and showed such support for us all during the campaign.
As I began this journey, many of you asked why I would come out of retirement and go back to a full-time job and for me, the answer was an easy decision.
Guess who’s back. In life sometimes you have to fight for what you want and anyone that knows me personally will tell you I don’t mind a good fight. Someone didn’t get that memo, but they know now.
People assumed after the election on November 20th, that the new board would take over but we actually didn’t until January 29th.
