Today, the Manny Diaz Campaign announced the endorsement of Miami Lakes Mayor Manny Cid. Diaz has represented District 103 in the Florida House of Representatives since 2012 and is seeking the District 36 seat in the state senate. Cid’s endorsement comes on the heels of endorsements by Hialeah Mayor Carlos Hernandez, Hialeah Gardens Mayor Yioset De La Cruz, and Doral Mayor JC Bermudez. 

“Manny was an effective state representative, and there’s no question that he will be an outstanding state senator, ” stated Mayor Cid. “When residents in West Lakes and Royal Oaks needed help with flooding, Manny delivered much needed funds to revamp their drainage system. When dozens of Miami Lakers saw their property lines being eroded into the public canal system, Manny responded by funding the stabilization project that saved millions of dollars worth of homeowners’ private properties. He delivered for Miami Lakes, and that’s why I am proud to endorse him.” 

Cid was first elected to the Miami Lakes Town Council in 2012 and as Mayor in 2016. He is an advocate for increased openness and transparency in government, with live webcasting of town meetings coming online under his leadership. He serves on the Educational Excellence School Advisory Council for Bob Graham Educational Center and is Chairman of the Mother of Our Redeemer Catholic School Board. Cid was awarded the Florida League of Cities Home Rule Hero Award in 2015 and 2016. 

“Mayor Manny Cid is a great public servant, and I’m proud to have his support,” said Diaz. “He works hard for the people of Miami Lakes, and I look forward to working with him to maintain the high quality of life we enjoy in our community.”
