In the August 30 primary, based on their previous voting record for libraries during contentious budget years - Community Advocates for Libraries in Miami endorses:
District 7: Commissioner Xavier Suarez (incumbent)
District 3: Commissioner Audrey Edmonson (incumbent)
District 10: Commissioner Dennis Moss (incumbent)
We are currently awaiting responses from the current candidates for District 11 on their position of library funding before providing an endorsement.
Please be advised for all District 11 (unincorporated West Kendall) voters, a vote cast for Commissioner Zapata will not count, as he has dropped out of the running.
Commissioners Bovo, Jordan, and Barreiro will run uncontested for their seats.
We are withholding an endorsement for a Mayoral candidate at this time. However, we currently support the Mayor’s proposed budget for fiscal year ’16 - ’17, as the flat millage rate is balanced out by an increase in property value.
