America is at an inflection point. We must choose between words and action, rhetoric and results. Miami’s success has been sizable and sustained because we’ve focused on keeping people safe, keeping taxes low, and embracing American innovation. Embracing innovation—from investors to inventors and entrepreneurs—has created a continuous flood, not just a flow, of job creation with rising salaries and better opportunities.
Miami’s success stands in contrast to the struggles of many of our other, Democrat-run cities. Americans must choose not simply what candidate they want but what future they want. This is why Miami’s selection for the RNC debate is so apt. It is the future, not the past, that will be on the ballot for all of us. Regardless of who you support, every candidate needs to answer: where do you stand on the future of technology?
As mayor, I’ve done everything in my power to grow our city’s economy into a national powerhouse. We welcome (and welcome back) entrepreneurs like Ken Griffin and Jeff Bezos. Embracing technology has allowed us to equip our police in delivering the lowest murder rate in recorded history.
