Thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve as your Circuit Court Judge these past six years. It has been my honor and privilege to administer justice and preserve an independent judiciary. I began this service in the Dependency Division of the Court administering justice for abused, neglected and/or abandoned children. I next served in the Criminal Division administering justice over felony crimes. I will now complete my service in the Civil Division administering justice over property insurance claims, personal injury claims, medical malpractice claims and other civil disputes. Along the way, I was blessed to meet and work with tremendous people, public servants and professionals within and outside the legal profession.
Finally, I am thankful to all those who supported me throughout this re-election campaign beginning with my immediate family, who each stepped up and took to the streets of Miami-Dade County to support me, especially my amazing wife Dalia and my tremendous children Joel, Allen and Eva. I am so proud of each of them and the positive impressions they made on our community. I also wish to publicly thank my dear friend, Jack Reiter, who I have known since grade school, for his tireless efforts, available ear and sound advice during this campaign and throughout my life. Many thanks to each and every host, co-host, financial supporter, and volunteer without whom this campaign would not be possible. I will remember each and every one of you. I also thank my Judicial Assistant Paula Lopez for her selfless support and years of service.
I now begin the next chapter in the life of Mark Blumstein. It will undoubtedly include service in one form or another with an aim to better the lives of others and to preserve and protect this republic, the United States of America, and our democratic way of life.
Very truly yours,
