If You Want to be a Miami Beach City Commissioner...:

Applications being taken to fill vacancy

There will be an opening for the Miami Beach City Commission Group IV seat when the resignation of Commissioner Kristen Rosen Gonzalez takes effect on January 3, 2019. Rosen Gonzalez had to resign her seat per the "resign to run law" in order to continue her campaign for Congress which, ultimately, was unsuccessful. At its meeting last week, Commissioners decided to fill the vacancy through appointment rather than spend nearly $600,000 on a special election. The City is now taking applications for the seat to fill the unexpired term which will end in November 2019.
 
Each applicant must have resided within the City for at least one year prior to the date of application.
 
In order to be considered for appointment, applicants must submit the following:
  • A completed application, which is available at the Office of the City Clerk, or on the City’s website; (Scroll to the bottom, there is a blue circle icon or "button" indicating information on the vacancy.)
  • Letter of interest;
  • Current resume;
  • Photograph; and
  • City of Miami Beach oath.
Applications may be submitted to the City Clerk via the following the methods:
  • Hand delivery to the Office of the City Clerk at Miami Beach City Hall, 1700 Convention Center Drive, 1st Floor, Miami Beach, FL 33139;
  • Email to RafaelGranado@miamibeachfl.gov or
  • Postal mail to Office of the City Clerk at Miami Beach City Hall, 1700 Convention Center Drive, 1st Floor, Miami Beach, FL 33139.
There is no deadline to apply; however, applicants are encouraged to submit their applications prior to January 17, 2019 at 5:00 p.m.
 
The City Commission will hold a discussion during its meeting on Wednesday, January 23, 2019 at 5:00 p.m. to fill the vacant seat.  All applicants and interested parties are encouraged to attend.
