Hello, I am Les Mendel Winston.

​I am running for Mayor of Aventura, FL because I love my community, and I believe that there are certain changes that need to be made in order to keep it the City of Excellence.

​What I bring to the table is my extensive experience as a business executive. I’ve successfully operated my own business, Insurance and Financial Services Inc., since 1977 here, in Miami-Dade County.

​I have a specific skill set that would benefit the City of Aventura, including my risk management skills as an insurance adviser and my financial planning skills in my capacity as an adviser to philanthropists.

​I am independent. I am not tied to anybody, there are no strings attached to me. I am a concerned resident, just like you, who will look to make the best decisions for the City of Aventura. The residents come first.

​Aventura needs the face and personality that matches the City. It needs a charismatic Mayor who understands what the City is about and how to maintain it as the City of Excellence. I will bring my problem-solving and leadership ability to the government.


We all are very fortunate to be able to live in one of the most beautiful cities in the State of Florida. New people are moving to Aventura each year, because this is indeed the City of Excellence.

As your Mayor, I will ensure that Aventura continues to prosper as one of Florida’s premiere communities to live, work and raise a family. For that to happen, I will work to:

•     Bring a Charter High School to Aventura.

•     Build on Aventura’s Independence from Miami-Dade County to Maintain Our City as the City of Excellence.

•     Maintain and Improve Property Values in Aventura.

•     Help Local Businesses Flourish and Bring New Jobs to Aventura.

•     Improve Social Life in Aventura.
