And now there are five
Lorry is the owner of Elwoods Gastro Pub in downtown Miami. She started the business five years ago. I sort of like the idea of bellying up to the bar and talking face-to-face to my commissioner over a beer and pub grub. I'm serious.
"When I first started the business, I saw first-hand the resilience and determination of everyday Miamians working hard to provide a better future for their families. They deserve a city commissioner who will look out for them every single day. They deserve a commissioner who will engage residents, work with businesses, invest in community assets, vote against bad deals, value good government, and fight to make sure regular Miamians aren't left behind from this latest economic boom," says Lorry.
From the press release: "In addition to running her small business, Lorry also serves on the Downtown Miami Partnership -- a private sector group that facilitates growth for the businesses and residents in the Downtown/Brickell area. While participating on the Partnership's Quality of Life Committee, Lorry works hand-in hand with residents, Miami police force, the homeless coalition, downtown ambassadors, and public works to reduce crime and ensure the safety of the community."
"Prior to moving to Miami, Lorry has spent her career as a licensed U.S. Customs broker executing global logistic sales for companies that included FedEx, DHL, and Expeditors International. As a trained negotiator, she has the ability to bring stakeholders together and build consensus to get things done."
She grew up in Denver, Colorado and has two sons, Robby and Cliff and lives in Downtown Miami with her husband Lewis.
Lorry's first step on her campaign will be a district-wide listening tour to hear the priorities and concerns of residents and businesses.
Others running are Grace Solares, Mike Simpson, Rosa Maria Polamino and Teresa Sarnoff. There is talk that Grovite Seth Sklarey is also running, but we have not received the news yet.
