“I thank each of these civic and business leaders for their commitment to our efforts. I believe the people of Congressional District 26 deserve an effective representative in Washington that makes education a national priority, promotes responsible economic growth, and fights for accountability and integrity in government. I grew up in Southwest Dade. My wife and I are raising our daughters here, and I have been honored to represent its residents since 2010 on the School Board. I look forward to continuing this conversation with our community,” said Carlos Curbelo.
Curbelo has served the residents of Southwest Miami-Dade on the School Board since November of 2010. During this time, Miami-Dade County Public Schools has seen student performance improve and graduation rates reach record levels while spending on bureaucracy has decreased. Curbelo has voted to reduce the property tax rate every year since being elected to the Board.
“Carlos has a long history of community involvement. He represents a new generation of leaders who are prepared to serve our community and have a say in its most important decisions. Carlos has shown great leadership on the School Board. We are proud to support him, and we look forward to his decision,” said Tony Argiz.
Congressional District 26 spans from Southwest 8th Street in Miami-Dade County all the way to Key West in Monroe County. It is a diverse district that includes many young families concerned about their future and the future of their children.
