Meet Eileen Higgins.

Eileen Higgins was elected on June 19th, 2018 to serve as the County Commissioner for District 5. A dynamic and vibrant district, she represents parts of Miami Beach, Downtown, and Brickell as well as Coral Way neighborhoods like the Roads, Silver Bluff, and Shenandoah — along with Little Havana and West Flagler to the north.

Eileen believes that Miami-Dade can be the best place on Earth to live, but only if we come together to solve our most pressing problems. This is why Eileen has always fought — and continues to fight — for resiliency in the face of a changing environment, common sense gun reforms to keep us safe, and programs that afford everyone an equal shot at the American Dream. From more reliable transportation to sea level rise, from affordable housing to better paying jobs, she is a champion for the policies that help everyone in our community succeed.

As the Commissioner for a district with stark inequality, she is dedicated to investing in our students, small business owners, and working families. Through her experience as a business owner, diplomat, and community advocate, she knows how to grow our economy and deliver prosperity for all.

When she’s not fighting for the families and individuals who call District 5 home, she enjoys exploring the different parts of Miami and taking in the natural beauty of our county. She’s an avid reader and user of public transportation, and loves combining the two when she rides the bus listening to an audiobook. If you spot her on your daily commute, she invites you to say hello and tell her your Miami story.
