Everyone should take the time to review the Palmetto Bay News article congratulating Palmetto Bay’s first vice mayor Linda M. Robinson who was recognized with a “Women of Impact” Award as well as being honored with the Miami-Dade County Mayor’s Pioneer Award. Twelve women leaders were honored for their achievements in their respective fields. We should be proud that our own Linda was honored as part of Miami-Dade County’s celebration of Women’s History Month.

Vice-Mayor Linda Robinson was honored twice, first, on Mar. 2 with the “Women of Impact” Award. Then, on Mar. 13 she was honored with the Mayor’s Pioneer Award during the “In the Company of Women” reception. It was my honor to attend that function as well as having been one her sponsors, nominating her for the award. The honors are well-deserved.“I truly accepted that honor on behalf of all of Palmetto Bay,” Robinson said during an interview on Mar. 23. “I was so honored and really humbled by this. It’s very exciting when you receive recognition after you’ve done something you really loved every minute doing.”
It has been my honor to have worked with Linda and her late husband, Ken Robinson both on important community issues, including the incorporation of Palmetto Bay and then serving with her on the initial Palmetto Bay Village Council. Linda was the catalyst in so many Village projects and initiatives including communications and special events. The list is far too long to mention here.
