When construction of Miami-Dade’s new civil and probate courthouse reaches completion, it should be named for late Clerk Harvey Ruvin, the officiant of his memorial said.
Ruvin, 85, was the county’s longest serving public official when he died Dec. 31. His admirers were myriad, as evidenced by thousands of attendees to his Jan. 5 memorial from both sides of the political aisle.
Ruvin’s brother-in-law and the memorial’s officiant, Rabbi Danny Marmorstein, called for honoring him with the courthouse naming to uniform applause.
“Harvey was too humble to make such a request,” he said, adding the designation would “be a well-deserved legacy.”
