Pride Month Statement

MIAMI, FL (JUNE 1, 2024) – This month we celebrate the Pride and Diversity of our LGBTQ+ community.  We also commemorate the history of violent challenges that family, friends, and loved ones have faced just for trying to be who they were born to be at places like the Pulse Nightclub and Stone Wall; and through the assassination of leaders like Harvery Milk.  

We also reaffirm our love and support for the ongoing struggle that too many people continue to have to find acceptance around their family dinner tables and in their family’s homes.

George Washington called the United States the last great experiment for protecting human happiness and I believe it is important to remind ourselves that experiments involve trial and error. 

However, regardless of the frustrations that can arise from individuals and institutions we must maintain a dogged determination if we are going to achieve the true ideals of equality and freedom that escaped the grasps of the founders if not their imaginations.

Recent attacks on personal freedoms by the Republican party and their supporters have called into question these long fought victories and we may yet need to use the ballot box to codify these rights.  This is why it is imperative that I am elected as Miami-Dade County Supervisor of Elections. I am the only candidate with a plan to modernize the Department and the only candidate who will work with the LGBTQ+ community and like-minded Supervisors of Elections from around the state to the full extent legally possible so that these issues get on the ballot before people’s rights are taken away.
