The Miami-Dade Democratic Party is committed to engaging Democratic voters ahead of the August 18 elections, the first election where term limits come into effect for County Commissioners. Miami-Dade will also elect a new Mayor. Thursday evening will start with a special forum including mayoral candidates Daniella Levine-Cava and Alex Penelas beginning at 6:20pm, then the gala begins at 7:00pm. These nights will be emceed by local Miami comedian Aaron Shapiro and playwright and performer Carmen Peláez.
With critical elections in August that can shape the future for Miami-Dade, this two-night event will feature many of the inspiring candidates, and focus on issues that confront South Florida. Thursday night will close with special remarks by Joe Biden. We will be building momentum towards the November elections where Miami-Dade turnout can help flip Florida blue and elect Democrats to all levels of government, including the Presidency.
