Bio

Vice Mayor Sandra Ruiz is a leader in the City of Doral who has had an extraordinary impact on the city's economic success and forward-thinking accomplishments. She was a founding member of One Doral, a community-based organization which worked tirelessly in advancing the City of Doral's incorporation until it became a reality. Vice Mayor Ruiz was elected as a member of the inaugural City of Doral Council, and served from 2003 through 2010. She was not only the first woman to serve on the City of Doral Council, but the only woman on the Council for the first 8 years as a city.

Vice Mayor Ruiz was returned to the City of Doral Council by the citizens of Doral on November 2012.

Following her passion for public service, Vice Mayor Ruiz was first elected to public office in 2002 when she won a seat in the Miami Dade County Area 9 Community Council, and was designated Vice Chair by her fellow Council members. Since her initiation into public office, Vice Mayor Ruiz has served Doral diligently as a stalwart supporter of cultural, parks and recreation initiatives, education, community beautification, police service enhancements, infrastructure and business development, and has demonstrated a zeal for accountability in government. Vice Mayor Ruiz has been an outspoken champion for the rights and needs of her constituents and has been able to amass recognition and support from a broad coalition of stakeholders, including residents, businesses, government officials, non-profit organizations, and the faith-based community, all whom she has served with a sense of purpose and professionalism.

Vice Mayor Ruiz moved to Miami in 1989 with her husband Aldo, a retired Naval Officer, and their daughter Jessica. The Ruiz family settled in Doral in 1998 where their son Alex was born. As a practice administrator for a local law firm, and loan consultant for a national bank, she developed strong administrative and finance experience.

Vice Mayor Ruiz was born in Mexico, and at a young age moved to the City of Chula Vista, California. Vice Mayor Ruiz attended public schools and was an active participant in various community projects including being the first woman in the Rotary's Interact Club. Her family was deeply involved in their community and contributed time and resources to make it a great place for families - a characteristic that has followed Vice Mayor Ruiz throughout her life, and later proved instrumental in the establishment of the City of Doral.
