Margaret Romero announces that she will be seeking the position of Mayor of Key West in the 2018 elections

Romero has been a steadfast “voice of reason” on behalf of the entire community since assuming the role of commissioner in 2015. She is a smart professional woman who maintains her composure under pressure and is steadfast in her dedication to the entire community, rather than preferential treatment for special interests.  Romero is a seasoned official who continues to strive for financial responsibility, accountability, and transparency in all city processes and decision-making.  She comes prepared for meetings by open-mindedly listening to what the citizens have to say, doing her own research, and not fearing to ask the hard questions that need to be asked before a vote.
