Kevin Marino Cabrera got elected to the county commission last November and has made it his priority to streamline the process by which residents apply for permits, how the county works to update the sewer system and environmental preservation, and the development of workforce housing.
Commissioner Marino Cabrera represents District Six, including Miami, Hialeah, Coral Gables, Miami Springs, Virginia Gardens, West Miami and unincorporated neighborhoods.
He worked for the presidential campaigns of Jeb Bush in 2016 and Donald Trump’s reelection campaign in 2020.
“I believe in smaller government,” he said. “The government should move out of the way and give folks the opportunities so that they can flourish, whether it be in business or in their everyday lives, making sure that we put money back in people’s pockets.”
“People know best how to use their money, not the government,” he said. “We should always be looking for ways to reduce taxes and return the taxpayers their money, because they are ultimately the best stewards of their own money.”
Commissioner Marino Cabrera spoke to Miami Today reporter Monica Correa.
