Rachel's Priorities

Expanding Education Access

As the only candidate with school-age children, Rachel understands how important education access is to our community’s future. As Commissioner, Rachel will work with the Commission to continue the tremendous support for Don Soffer Aventura High School and explore additional opportunities to bring public education access to younger children as well.

Prioritizing Transit Solutions

Let’s face it- there’s no easy fix for traffic problems on Biscayne Blvd or the Lehman Causeway. But there are ways that our community can help mitigate our traffic problems by investing in transit alternatives -like our successful bike share program- and the installation of traffic calming devices that discourage use of side roads as shortcuts from non-resident commuters.

Supporting Law Enforcement

Aventura’s police officers work hard everyday to keep our community safe, but big challenges lay on the horizon. The expansion of Aventura Mall and other entertainment venues, the addition of a Brightline rail station, and the population growth of surrounding communities will ensure that public safety issues will only become more complicated.  Local law enforcement will need continued support to ensure they have the resources and staff necessary to keep our neighborhoods safe.
