I am Karyn Cunningham and I am running for Village of Palmetto Bay Council Seat 1. I have served the community as a teacher and education advocate for over 27 years. As a lifelong resident of Miami-Dade County and resident of Village of Palmetto Bay since 1995, I have seen our bedroom community grow to be a business and residential hub in thriving South Dade.
As our community has grown and evolved, I have also seen an unfortunate disconnect between our local government and the community it serves. My years in the classroom and advocating at the neighborhood, county and state levels have provided me with the experience, knowledge and passion to bring a fresh, positive and independent voice to the Village of Palmetto Bay and a return to open dialogue in village government.
Dialogue is a two-way conversation and our voices are important in shaping the future of our community. My experience in building consensus and coalition will help to restore and unify our collective voice in Palmetto Bay to make our community a place that we are happy to call home. I hope you will take the time to learn a bit more about me and to contact me with any questions and comments.
