What started out as a morning of swearing at rush hour traffic, turned into a pleasant swearing-in ceremony of six returning Miami-Dade County Commissioners at the Adrienne Arsht Center of Performing Arts in downtown Miami.

All six were re-elected by a large majority of voters confirming the Commissioners positive contributions to the operation of our local government.

Master of Ceremony Brian Andrews skillfully directed the program starting with a joint Invocation by Rabbi Julie Jacobs and Pastor Joanen Floreal. This was followed by the presentation of Colors by the Miami-

Dade Combined Honor Guard with the Pledge of Allegiance by Alexander Sosa, grandson of Commissioner Rebeca Sosa.

After the singing of the National Anthem by Joshua Ho, Mayor Carlos Giminez reviewed the successes of the County under his leadership, of course with the assistance of the County Commissioners.

A musical interlude by Jon Saxx preceded the Oath of Office Ceremony taken by each of the re-elected Commissioners. Congratulations to District 2 Commissioner Jean Monestime, District 4 Commissioner Sally Heyman, District 6 Commissioner Rebeca Sosa, District 8 Daniella Levine Cava, District 10 Commissioner Javier Souto and District 12 Jose “Pepe” Diaz.

Our representative from South Dade, Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava, out shined them all in her fiery, red, sequined suit as she assured the audience that “Government is a partnership with the people of the community.”
