Public relations pro Sabina Covo is headed to the Miami City Commission after defeating 12 others in a Special Election for the District 2 seat.
Covo will serve the remaining eight months of former Commissioner Ken Russell’s term representing District 2 spanning the city’s coast. Russell left office in January following an unsuccessful bid for Congress.
Covo, a former journalist and media relations director for the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services, called for an end to “disarray” Miami residents see at City Hall.
“(It’s) time to get to problem-solving,” she said, “and getting things done for our community.”
