Maurice Ferré endorses Ken Russell
Mayor Ferré was the surprise guest of honor at the event and was greeted with warm applause from the atendees. He was preceded by former Commissioner Johnny Winton and Liaison to Miami Dade Mayor Gimenez Frank Balzebre, who both endorsed Ken Russell.
Mayor Ferré stated in his endorsement, “I am supporting Ken Russell because he is a fair and level-minded person who can make good decisions for the city.” He spoke of the new challenges facing Miami in the future and stated Russell is a most equipped member of this new generation to tackle them. Ferré then implored the crowd to get the vote out for Ken, warning that “this election will be decided by less than a hundred votes.”
Ferré is the latest in Russell’s growing group of endorsements that include Senators Gwen Margolis and Daryl Jones, Senator and House Speaker Dick Pettigrew and former Commissioner Johnny Winton.
Russell is a local business owner, activist, and charity event organizer. His entrance into politics followed his successful challenge to the city’s remediation plan of contaminated Merrie Christmas Park.
