Miami-Dade District 8 Commissioner, Daniella Levine Cava, sets her sight on the Miami-Dade County Mayoral Seat. She seeks to be the first mayoral campaign to qualify for Mayor by petition and she is holding an event this Saturday, August 17th, at Prince Field, here in Miami Springs.
According to her campaign website, they are seeking to collect 18,000 petitions by September 30th as proof that she has community support. Here’s the full quote:
“One of the first decisions Daniella made when she filed to run for Mayor was to embark on a journey to be the first candidate to qualify by petition. This shows that it’s the people of Miami-Dade who have banded together to put Daniella’s name on the ballot, To reach this important moment, we need to collect 18,000 petitions. As the summer months started, we set an ambitious goal to collect 3,000. The good news is we shattered that goal and did so one month early. Now we have set a new goal of 5,000 petitions by Sept. 30th and with your help, I know we will get there!?
Step up for our 90 day challenge to collect 5,000 petitions by September 30! Join us in Miami Springs this Sat. to collect signatures as we get close to being the first campaign in Miami-Dade history to qualify for Mayor by petition. #PeoplePowered #MayorWhoCares #WeMustDoBetter pic.twitter.com/4bvyQBzt52
