Engage Miami hosts District 2 Candidates Forum
All nine candidates were asked to complete a candidate questionnaire in early July. Only five candidates returned our questionnaire. Those candidates were invited and are confirmed to participate: Javier Gonzalez, Ken Russell, Teresa Sarnoff, Grace Solares, and Lorry Woods.
Engage Miami’s mission is to increase youth engagement within Miami-Dade by developing a culture of civic participation that is impactful, interesting, and fun. We're home-grown and led by young people from across Miami-Dade – students, activists, artists, organizers, young professionals, and workers.
Polling shows that millennials vote when they feel informed of the issues and the candidates. Nearly a third of the population in District 2 are considered millennials. Engage Miami has worked to increase their participation in this election by rallying young people in August and educating them about the long-promised Dan Paul Park, registering over 500 voters in September, and hosting this candidate forum focused on issues millennials care about.
