1 Mayor Suarez takes tech message to the city

Miami Mayor Francis Suarez took his message from Twitter to the streets of Miami on Friday, hosting a press conference to speak about seizing the opportunity to build a great tech city and to “create the next generation of leaders right here at home.”

“It’s not only about importing the world’s brightest minds, it’s about creating the world’s brightest minds,” he said, and that starts with creating a world class education system. “76% of Blacks and 62% of Hispanics could get shut out or be under-prepared for 86% of jobs in the U.S. by 2045,” he said. “Miami will do everything in our power to keep this projection from becoming a reality.”
