Don Slesnick’s portrait has joined those of the 22 other former Coral Gables mayors dating back to 1925. Slesnick held that post from 2001 to 2011.

Current Coral Gables Mayor Jim Cason unveiled the portrait on Oct. 16 and, together with Mr. Slesnick, hung it in the Mayor’s Reception Room at the historic city hall. Many of Slesnick’s family members, commission colleagues and friends came to commemorate this special moment.

“I am thrilled to join my fellow mayors on these historic walls, but the real honor was the privilege of serving the citizens of Coral Gables for the first decade of the 21st Century,” Slesnick said.
