It’s been almost three years since Eileen was elected to serve the residents and businesses of District 5 as its County Commissioner representing the Downtown and Brickell urban core, the sandy beaches of Miami Beach, tree-lined neighborhoods of Coral Way, and the colorful center of Latin culture in Little Havana. An engineer by trade, with an MBA from Cornell University, she is a problem solver with a proven record of helping businesses and local organizations address the many complex issues facing our community. As County Commissioner, Eileen is fighting for transportation solutions and safer, walkable neighborhoods as Chair Transportation, Mobility, and Planning Committee and of the TPO Urban Mobility Task Force. She has increased affordable housing opportunities by initiating, preserving, and creating 4,600 affordable housing units in District 5 alone, including 500 new units in the Senior Campus in Little Havana by 2024.
