  • The Pres Says - April 2018
    Updated On: Apr 02, 2018

    We hit the ground running!!! On January 29th, I officially became your new PBA President, and right out of the gate there were a few surprises that we had to address. One being an Independent Review Board that would affect the entire County, but was clearly targeting the police department. It passed by a narrow margin but, at the urging of the PBA, Mayor Carlos Gimenez vetoed the item, and for that we thank him. Unfortunately, there was some last minute political maneuvering, so the item may be coming back up on the agenda in April. Stay tuned for upcoming developments on this issue.

    We recently started contract negotiations with the City of Miami Gardens and with the County. The current PBA staff was able to start these negotiations within the first thirty (30) days of taking office, and we will keep you informed on the progress on both of these. In the words of former President John F. Kennedy, “Let us never negotiate out of fear. But let us never fear to negotiate.” 

    I could not agree more, and negotiate we will. Your current Executive Board and Board of Directors are committed to fighting for better working conditions and benefits. 

    We would like to commend Mayor Gimenez on naming Daniel Junior as the permanent Director of Miami-Dade Corrections, and the North Miami City Council on making Larry Juriga as Chief. Both of these men have been doing an outstanding job as interim, and will continue as the permanent Director and Chief.

    We here at the PBA would like to give a big congratulations to newly-elected Board of Director, John Saavedra, on being named both the HPOA and the Miami-Dade County Association of Chiefs of Police Officer of the Year for 2017. Sergeant Saavedra was shot three times in the line of duty while conducting a narcotics investigation in 2012. Great job! We salute you!

    In closing, as we move further into this new year, we have started with meaningful and professional dialogue on issues that will affect public safety at all levels. From the staffing conditions at our Communications Bureau, to meeting with the Governor and Miami-Dade County Police Director, to meeting with our current County Mayor and other local Mayors and to ensure Public Safety remains at the forefront and not put on the back burner during these very difficult but important budget hearings that will affect all. 

    I, along with your Board of Directors, look forward to these upcoming challenges. 

    I assure you, we are up to the challenge and look forward to positive results.
