Special Elections Issue of BHA News Highlights Brickell Candidates

BHA has produced a special electronic edition of BHA News focused on the candidates on the ballot this election season. With the exception of the Florida Senate race for District 37, to be determined in the November general election, all those included in the issue are on the ballot Tuesday, August 30th, in races representing Brickell. keyraces

The local races—Mayor of Miami-Dade, School Board Rep for District 6 and Miami-Dade County Commissioner for District 7— will be determined by the candidate who receives the majority and more than 50 percent of the votes cast. If no candidate receives more than 50 percent, the top two will be in a runoff election November 8th. For House District 112, a winner from each party will face off in November.

We’ll invite any candidates who end up in a runoff to participate in the Brickell/Downtown Candidates Forum on Tuesday, September 27, 7:00 p.m. at First Presbyterian Church, 609 Brickell Avenue. At the Forum we’ll also focus on Florida Senate and House races that encompass the Brickell district.

We asked each of the contenders to respond to a simple question in limited space: “What can the Brickell community expect from you if elected?” Most, but not all campaigns responded.

BHA recognizes how important elected officials are to safeguarding and improving Brickell’s continued quality of life. We urge all Brickell residents to take a look at the candidates here and in other media and gauge which candidate will best represent you.
