Florida Politics: ‘Exceptional leadership’: 3 local leaders endorse James Reyes for Miami-Dade Sheriff

Miami-Dade Public Safety Chief James Reyes just added three more people to the list of those supporting his bid for Sheriff.

Miami Gardens Council member Reggie Leon, Miami Springs Council member Victor Vazquez and former Rep. Elaine Bloom are all officially backing Reyes, according to his campaign.

“James Reyes is absolutely the right person for the job,” Leon said in a statement.

“Chief Reyes has the leadership experience to bring people together, collaborate with partners, and keep communities safe all over Miami-Dade. His long track record of prioritizing the safety of the people speaks for itself and makes Chief Reyes the right choice for our community.”

Vazquez, a U.S. Air Force veteran and retired Miami Dade College professor, said in a statement that the county “will continue to be a safe and thriving community for all” under Reyes.

“I am proud to endorse Chief James Reyes for Miami-Dade County Sheriff because of his exceptional leadership and deep commitment to protecting all of our residents,” he said. “His extensive public service and proven track record in law enforcement make him the best candidate to lead our county through this important transition and work with our Miami Springs police to maintain public safety.”

Bloom, who has lived in Miami-Dade since 1962 and dedicated 13 years as a state lawmaker, called it “an honor” to endorse Reyes.
