Miami-Dade, FL – Today, the Mayor Daniella Levine Cava campaign announced the collection and submission of more than 5,000 petitions from Miami-Dade voters who want their Mayor on the ballot for reelection. Proving the power of her strong grassroots support, Mayor Levine Cava made history in 2020 by becoming the first county mayoral candidate to ever qualify for the ballot by petition – and now, she’s going to do it again.
"As we celebrate this wonderful milestone in our campaign, I am deeply honored and humbled by the outpouring of support from voters across our community," says Mayor Levine Cava. “Thank you to everyone who turned in a petition, canvassed Miami-Dade neighborhoods for signatures, and helped us build our grassroots team heading into this critical election. Our people-powered campaign will continue to fight for the future of Miami-Dade – because it’s up to each one of us to get involved and create positive change for our community."
Mayor Levine Cava’s campaign is well on track to meeting the Miami-Dade County Elections Department requirement of 15,294 signatures (1% of the total number of registered electors in the county) to qualify for the ballot.
This strong show of grassroots support follows last week’s news of seventy-five percent of local mayors in Miami-Dade County endorsing Mayor Daniella Levine Cava for reelection, with South Florida AFL-CIO members having endorsed the Mayor’s reelection campaign on Labor Day.
During the Mayor’s tenure, she has lowered crime and prioritized public safety, made historic property tax cuts, protected 25,000 tenants from evictions, championed the transition of the county's transportation bus fleet to electric, expanded public transportation options, and fostered small business growth through innovative initiatives like “Strive305.” A well-respected leader who has garnered bipartisan support across the County, Mayor Levine Cava is Miami-Dade’s first woman mayor and first Jewish mayor.
