Luis Marin Proven

Public servant


Born in Cuba. Became a cop. 

And, with your help, a commissioner.

I was born the son of a political prisoner battling the emerging Castro regime, and was brought by my family fleeing oppressive communism in search of a better life in America. I don’t think of myself as a Cuban-American, however, I am a proud American. At 20 years old, I was sworn into the Miami-Dade Police Department, a job I would faithfully serve for the next 34 years until I retired.

I bought property in Pine Ridge in the 1990s knowing that Miami was not where my heart was, and that one day, I would move my family to Citrus County. After a long career serving in many positions from motor patrol on the bike to critical airport defense following 9/11, the opportunity finally arrived in 2017 for me to move with my wife and we built our house on that same piece of property from the ‘90s where we still live today.

I'm running on the platform of governing as a proven public servant. There's a difference between someone who has worked for themselves and someone who has worked for the public their whole life. The mentality of putting others first doesn't happen when elected, it has to be practiced like I have done my entire career.
