Yesterday afternoon Michael Grieco, a fellow candidate for Mayor of Miami Beach, withdrew his candidacy due to ‘mudslinging’. There will be no change in my campaign as a result.
As a candidate for Mayor of Miami Beach, I was never running *against* Michael Grieco. I still am not running *against* Dan Gelber or Daniel Kahn. There will be no campaign mudslinging from this camp, ever.
This campaign is *for* the citizens of Miami Beach. It is *for* transparancy, accountability and progress. That will never change.
Certainly, Mr. Grieco and I don’t see eye to eye on everything. Yet I appreciate and respect the positive contributions he has made. Whichever side of the dais the voters place the two of us come November, I look forward to many future meetings with him at city hall.
Mr. Gelber and Mr. Kahn: the three of us have unique experiences to bring to the office of Mayor. I look forward to productive and positive debate as we share our respective visions with voters, so that they may select one of us based upon our merits.
