Get informed. Get election ready. Get involved.
Florida’s historic upcoming General Election will bring with it a voluminous ballot with candidate races, an unprecedented number of constitutional amendments with some amendments including multiple bundled issues; a school board referendum; County charter questions as well as questions regarding various municipalities and communities. This evening’s Chill, Chat & Chew Part 2: General Election Edition will help you get Election Ready and give you the tools to educate your family, friends and neighbors.
We are excited by the participation of several local candidates: State Rep. Dist. 108 - Dotie Joseph and Riquet Caballero; Mayor, City of Opa-locka - Dottie Johnson; Circuit Court Judge - Vivianne del Rio and Renee Gordon; City of Miami Gardens Council Seat 2 - Reggie Leon and Seat 4 - Katrina Wilson-Davis.
We are also pleased to announce our conversation leaders: Teo Noboa from Miami-Dade County Elections Department; Christopher Norwood of Norwood Consulting Group; Jessica Garafola, Legislative Aide to State Rep. Shevrin Jones; and Antonio "Tony" White, 1st Vice President - United Teachers of Dade (UTD). They will share their expertise by covering a number of important topics to make sure everyone who attends is an informed voter.
You can ask questions about the voting process, get information so you can stop skipping the ballot questions about retention of judges, discuss those confusing and controversial constitutional amendments; the school board referendum to help give our teachers a raise and much, much, more.
As a reminder, this event is not a debate. It is designed to be conversational and informative. You are encouraged to bring your sample ballot.
