At the county level each resident in Miami-Dade is represented by a county commissioner on the Miami-Dade Board of County Commissioners. Voters in Miami-Dade also elect a county mayor. Additionally each resident is represented by a board member on the School Board of Miami-Dade County.
Our county mayor is a "strong mayor," which means they manage the day-to-day operations of the county and manage all departments as the county's chief executive officer. They also have veto power over legislation approved by the county commission (they can override the mayor's veto with a 2/3 vote).
