Dan Gelber: New Mayor seeks to brand Miami Beach a cultural hub
Dan Gelber was born in Miami Beach – the only home he’s known and to him the most interesting city in the world. As its new mayor, he wants to keep it that way but ensure the virtues always prevail over challenges that come with being so interesting.
Some of the challenges facing Miami Beach include safety, sea level rise and its street-level raising project, which Mr. Gelber said is disruptive and costly. He wants to make sure the city does it the right way and believes it will happen, but only if Miami Beach is attentive to the process and constantly challenging initial assumptions.
He is a founding partner with Gelber Schachter & Greenberg P.A. and will maintain his law practice while serving as mayor.
Miami Today reporter Susan Danseyar interviewed Mr. Gelber in his City Hall office. The interview was recorded by Jahmoukie Dayle, and can be found at http://bit.ly/2uNHy0Q.
