Our communities in South Florida and all across the nation are blessed with rich natural resources that must be developed in a way that is environmentally conscious and sustainable for future generations. I support an all-of-the-above approach to domestic energy production with a focus on research, and deployment of new, clean energy technologies that ensures all Americans have access to affordable and reliable energy sources.
I oppose offshore drilling, especially off the coast of Florida. We must continue to work towards innovation and development of next generation energy sources. I am a strong supporter of free market solutions that protect our environment and innovate our economy to make renewable and clean energy as affordable as, and ultimately cheaper than, traditional energy sources for American families.
As Mayor of Miami-Dade County, I put an emphasis on installing more solar panels, improving our public transportation and making our streets more bike- and pedestrian-friendly to get more cars off the street. I will continue to advocate for policies that invest in sustainable infrastructure and encourages more use of public transportation.
