STEPHEN COHEN FOR COMMISSIONER
Political Outsider Fighting for a Transparent and Honest City Hall.
Stephen Cohen has devoted his life to making Miami Beach a better place to live, work and raise a family. Now, Stephen is running for City Commissioner to improve the safety of our neighborhoods, make our city government accountable to the voters, and get results for Miami Beach taxpayers.
The Leadership, Integrity & Dedication We Deserve
Dedication to Building a Safer, Stronger, More Resilient Miami Beach
Knowing how crucial it is to protect our beaches and waterways, Stephen has led mass clean-up efforts from North Beach Oceanside Park all the way down to South Pointe Park.
An active member of Temple Moses in North Beach and a sponsor of Temple Emanu-El in South Beach, Stephen has dedicated himself to helping those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, volunteering at local food drives for seniors in need.
A Fighter for Miami Beach Taxpayers & Middle-Class Families
Two Decades of Experience Balancing Budgets, Keeping Payroll & Building Successful Businesses
This private sector and entrepreneurial experience is sorely lacking in our city government. If we want better results out of City Hall – from lower taxes to better infrastructure – then we need leaders representing us who understand what it means to balance a budget, meet payroll and solve complex problems with creative solutions.
As our next Commissioner, Stephen will always put us first as he fights to get Miami Beach back on track.
STEPHEN COHEN WILL DELIVER REAL RESULTS FOR MIAMI BEACH
We must also prioritize community policing in every neighborhood and school zone, strengthen night-life units, particularly in the South Beach Entertainment District and enhance quality of life patrols, both as a response to the recent wave of crime, but also as a long-term strategy to improve public safety.
The Miami Beach Police Department and all members of local law enforcement dedicate their lives to protecting us. We must support their efforts and ensure they have the resources required to protect Miami Beach.
STANDING UP FOR OUR SENIORS
With many seniors living on fixed incomes, we must ensure no senior ever has to choose between paying for their prescription medication, putting food on the table, or making rent.
Our city government must do more to protect seniors and address the growing affordability problem.
PROTECTING OUR ENVIRONMENT
But beyond the purely economic, protecting our environment is critical. Coastal resiliency and flood mitigation are absolutely vital for Miami Beach to prosper and for our families and future generations to live here for years to come.
Our City Commission must do more to improve our infrastructure and strengthen our resiliency measures in the face of climate change. Keeping our city clean and our shores and waterways clear is a necessity.
GETTING MIAMI BEACH BACK TO WORK
We need a Miami Beach Back on Track plan to help these small businesses, create jobs and put Miami Beach residents back to work:
- Reduce the bureaucratic burdens and red tape placed on small businesses.
- Provide small businesses with COVID-19 relief and tax cuts to keep workers on their payroll and hire new, local employees.
- Fund local marketing initiatives to help new ventures get off the ground and existing businesses to thrive.
- Reduce the commercial property tax burden on small businesses.
ENSURING AN ACCOUNTABLE, TRANSPARENT GOVERNMENT
SUPPORTING STRONG SCHOOLS
Special education, after-school programs and sports, music and arts programs are vital to strong schools and should receive the funding our kids deserve.
