Profile: Frank Carollo
Written by Nina Lincoff on January 8, 2014
Frank Carollo is a born-and-raised Miami commissioner, and he has the alumnus status of Miami-area universities to prove it. For his current role as District 3 commissioner, Mr. Carollo draws on his experience as a CPA, fraud investigator, SWAT team member and Miami-Dade policeman.
At his office at City Hall on Biscayne Bay, the view is spectacular. Compared with his “day-job” office space as a CPA, his 2½ year-old daughter Briana prefers the digs on the bay.
We can see why: whether it’s the signed and encased Heat memorabilia, one of Shaq’s gigantic shoes, Briana’s assortment of toys, or the poster of his stint for the 1995 Miami-Dade Police Department calendar (sunset and tight black shirt included), Mr. Carollo’s diverse interests clearly influence his role as public servant.
Miami Today reporter Nina Lincoff interviewed Mr. Carollo in early December at his City Hall office.
