He was re-elected as Mayor of Doral in 2016.  He is currently a member of the Advisory Board of the United States Conference of Mayors, as well as the Vice Chairman of the Miami-Dade County Transportation Planning Organization.

During Mayor Bermudez’s terms the new city’s infrastructure was created including the creation of the city’s award-winning Finance and Parks departments. Under his leadership the city added over 121 acres of playgrounds, ballfields and recreational facilities while purchasing, through grants and funds, an additional 45 acres of parkland. These parks include Doral Central Park, Morgan Levy Park, Doral Meadow Park, Downtown Doral Park, Trails and Tails Park and Veterans Park. Morgan Levy Park, an old construction debris land field site, was refurbished into an award-winning recreational facility. Trails and Tails Park was the first municipal dog park in the western part of Miami-Dade County. Under Mayor Bermudez the city also began to build one of the most extensive urban bike trails in the county.
