Miami to name new city manager

@NadegeGreen

Daniel Alfonso, Miami’s chief financial officer, will replace outgoing City Manager Johnny Martinez.

In an interview Wednesday, Alfonso said he is eager to take on his new role.

“I'm a local kid. It's humbling in a sense. I told the mayor I'm very happy for this opportunity,” Alfonso said.

Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado will announce the appointment at City Hall Thursday morning.

The appointment of Alfonso will be set for approval by the city commission on Feb. 27. He would start his new post the first week of March.

Current City Manager Martinez announced that he would resign earlier this month after suffering a stroke and discovering he had heart problems. Martinez did not address his health issues when he announced his resignation.

While Martinez recovered from his stroke, Alfonso served as acting city manager.
