Progressive Caucuses Endorse Eileen Higgins for Miami-Dade County Commission District 5

Tampa - Susan Smith, President of the Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida, has released the following statement:

The Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida (DPCF) and the People's Progressive Caucus of Miami-Dade (PPCMD) are pleased to announce our endorsement of Eileen Higgins in the Miami-Dade District 5 County Commission Special Election on May 22nd.

We believe Higgins will put the interests of working people at the forefront of her service on the Miami-Dade County Commission. With her campaign's emphasis on expanded public transit and affordable housing, better wages, and serious responses to rising sea levels and energy demands, Higgins demonstrates her understanding that we must build communities that work for everybody and not just the rich and powerful.  

The DPCF and PPCMD endorsement process includes a comprehensive look at candidates' platforms and dedication to implementing progressive policies at all levels of government. It's our belief that this is the best way to enhance the quality of life for all Floridians. The 2018 elections are an opportunity for us to spotlight candidates who will carry this mission forward.

The Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida and the People's Progressive Causus of Miami-Dade are proud to endorse Eileen Higgins for Miami-Dade District 5 County Commission Special Election.
