Embattled Doral mayor launches namesake app


For those looking for a one-stop information source about Doral Mayor Luigi Boria, there’s an app for that.

Suffering after a wave of negative attention during the past few months in the wake of political disagreements with his fellow council members and the city manager, the embattled mayor said he’s focusing on opening a direct line of communication with residents through the app. “Luigi Boria.”

“It’s personal,” he said. “I want to keep the people that follow me informed, in the same way like Facebook and Instagram and Twitter.”

The app, available for free on iPhones and Android phones, was launched a few weeks ago and is not an official city project. Boria commissioned it himself through a local company, Way Out Mobile Solutions. Doral already has an official iPhone app.
