Magazine Names Miami Mayor As One Of The World’s 50 Greatest Leaders

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez has been recognized by Fortune Magazine on its “World’s 50 Greatest Leaders” list.

Suarez ranked 20 on the list.

According to Fortune, the city of Miami has “captured more hearts, minds, and especially bodies than just about any other in the U.S. recently,” with Suarez serving as its face.

Suarez has helped publicize the lower taxes and superior lifestyle in Miami on Twitter and through other forms of media.

The mayor, who has made international headlines with his promotion of a business-friendly climate and forward-thinking initiatives in the city, has an “ambassadorial role” which he has embraced “with the vigor of a tech CEO or startup founder,” Fortune wrote.

His efforts to bring innovation to Miami, have had great success lately, helping to attract new residents and businesses. A growing number of tech and finance companies have announced they will be relocating here.

Suarez is slated to lead the U.S. Conference of Mayors next year if he wins reelection in Miami next year, according to the magazine.

He’s doing the most he can do for a Mayor that is mostly ceremonial.

He is still constrained by the actual work done by the City Commissioners, specifically, Loco Joe.

I agree he is trying to bring a real change to Miami so we can finally be taken serious as a global city not just for vacation!

He HAS brought change. He continues to improve. Miami IS being taken seriously.

Not to mention Pajama Boy Ken Russell, who would rather complain about streetlights not being solar powered rather than transit and walkability, or that Miami21 isn’t gender-neutral rather than the fact so much of it has been ineffective with fostering good urban planning and design.

He did an interview on the Sway podcast with Kara Fisher and said that he is interested in running for governor when the time is right. He also talked about meeting with Nikki Haley, who will almost certainly run for president next year, so he could end up on running for VP. And he has no interest in running for legislative office.

I appreciate all the PR he has done for the City . But the day to day administration of the City has a serious customer service problems. Planning, zoning and building permit approvals are a nightmare and simple permitting that should take a couple of weeks takes almost a year. He needs to focus on helping those of us who are already here.

Miami has done an exceptional job, compared to other big cites, with the homeless. There are fewer chronic homeless on our streets per 100,000 than any other major city in the USA.

Nice to see that there are more positive comments about him, than the negatives comments that have not substantial material other than vitriolic hate against conservatives and good to see many funny jokes including saying he’s sexy ( he’s )

He wants:

Bring IT companies that are leaving hard taxation cities full of violence thank to Antifa and BLM peaceful protests ( San Francisco has already lost 35 % of the IT employees and companies in one year !!

Better paying jobs for miami, that will improve the collected money in taxes without rising them ( a hard concept to understand for liberals)

Decrease or keep taxes the same. ( taxing the rich damage the middle class and decrease the federal revenue, happens all the time and there’s statistics to proved)

Provide security and respect the police
Create safety for the city by supporting the uniform not defunding it !!!! 👏

Those things are the ones that will bring jobs and prosperity to the city!!!

👏👏👏👏👏

Yes. Why can’t there be more conservatives like Suarez and not like Trump? Just wait until the Trumplicans find out Suarez is on the record for stating he didn’t vote for Trump in 2020.

Trump’s policies were the most Conservative or any President since Reagan, maybe more. For the first time in my lifetime, the USA was energy independent, and all American workers recognized the lowest unemployment numbers in history (except for white males).

Suarez’s policies are about the same as Trumps. So far, the media hasn’t trained their attacks on him as they have Trump and DeSantis, but they will once he moves up from City Mayor. That is the way politics these works.

AND you should stop criticizing the grammar when you, as a liberal, can’t win an argument … besides, Now you liberals are claiming in you “Victimhood and anti racist” crappy theories that written proper English is colonialists, overachieving and perfectionist ( all of those values, are considering now in our universities Inherently “White supremacy” )

So stop criticizing grammar and sentence composition and use your brain and not you liver when debating

Wow…you may have missed it, but there is the thing called the UNDERLINE.
Because at first you said, “name one”, I tried to name only one.
But then you keep ranting.

The facts are that taxes are NOT higher.
I also appreciate that he is a champion for high speed Internet access to the underserved. Imagine a Miami when another generation is ignorant and angry, just because they don’t know anything.

She though that the 3 billions that the City of New York would give to Amazon was in cash and at the moment of moving the company there… little she knew about tax exemptions… she has the idea that NYC will give Amazon the 3 billions in cash, overnight, in an airplane! Like Obama and Biden did with the ayatollahs in iran years ago!! 🤪😂😂🤣

IF you think that is all that he is doing, you certainly haven’t had a 5 minute conversation with him and probably haven’t seen him speak in person. The guy has been a Technology advocate for well over a decade. He has used any/every platform that he has had to lead people toward better community and better education.
Francis X. is the real deal.
This guy walks the walk and talks the talk. A Politician every Miamian should be proud of, and a very rare breed.
