Francis Suarez for Miami Mayor

Francis X. Suarez has served as City of Miami Commissioner for District 4 since 2009. He has worked diligently to raise the standards of the community where he was born and raised. Commissioner Suarez also serves as Vice‐Chair of the Miami‐Dade Transportation Planning Organization, which is tasked with approving federally required plans and transportation policies, and as President of the Miami‐Dade County League of Cities.  

The oldest of four siblings, Commissioner Suarez was born into a family where, as he describes, “being socially conscious was a kind of requirement.” Commissioner Suarez is dedicated to elevating the quality of life of the residents he serves by way of focusing on transportation and connectivity issues within the city and beyond, nurturing the growth of a tech‐based economy in the area and, by extension, job creation and international opportunities with Latin America.  His priorities also include affordable housing, tackling the poverty pandemic and, as a corollary, reducing crime.

Commissioner Suarez graduated from Florida International University where he majored in finance and graduated in the top ten percent of his class.  He went on to law school at the University of Florida Frederic G. Levin College of Law, graduating cum laude.  Prior to running for public office, Commissioner Suarez founded a successful real estate firm. He is also a practicing attorney with the law firm of GrayRobinson, specializing in real‐estate and corporate transactions.  

Commissioner Suarez is married to Gloria M. Fonts. They have one child – Andrew Xavier – and consider themselves proud and blessed to be raising their family in the City of Miami.

So far, he's spent close to $600,000 of that money -- about $600,000 more than any of his opponents (Robert Ingram Burke and Christian Canache have yet to report a single dollar raised).
