Miami-Dade County Commission chair Joe A. Martinez was a guest speaker at the Ponce de Leon Business Association’s Mar. 19 meeting at JohnMartin’s in Coral Gables. He spoke to the members about Miami-Dade County issues and answered questions.
“As a representative of the county, I try to attend as many community events as possible to have the opportunity to answer questions from residents and inform them of the various programs Miami-Dade County has to assists local businesses,” Martinez said.
“It’s important that organizations like the Ponce de Leon Business Association are aware of the resources the county has that could help their businesses thrive and for me to receive feedback from the residents on how to potentially address issues that affect everyone.”
The Ponce de Leon Business Association has served the community since 1963 as a non-profit volunteer civic association dedicated to supporting sound and reasonable development and improvement of the city of Coral Gables, with particular emphasis on the downtown business community. The organization features weekly luncheons with topical speakers on issues important to those who live and work in Coral Gables.
