MIAMI (WSVN) – City of Miami Mayor Francis Suarez and the rest of a bipartisan group of mayors took part in a virtual meeting with President-elect Joe Biden and Vice President-elect Kamala Harris.
Suarez touched on multiple topics during Monday’s U.S. Conference of Mayors, but a recurring one was COVID-19.
“He wanted to make sure that we had sufficient money to operate our governments, to open our schools safely, and that we had a testing program, and that they would give us very specific guidelines on how and what to do,” said Suarez.
