A vote for Solares

The Miami Herald got it wrong in its recommendation for the District 2 Miami Commission race. I am proud to be standing with longtime community advocate Grace Solares.

As an LGBT resident, I know what it takes to fight for things you believe in because I’ve been fighting for equal rights all my life. I am excited to see Solares run for the commission. She has been a voice of equality and fairness for families like ours because she knows it’s the right thing to do.

I know how important it is to have a commissioner that will be a real voice for the community. I lived in the Brickell area for more than four years and saw my quality of life continue to deteriorate because of traffic congestion, out-of-control development and a lack of commitment from the current city commissioner.

Grace Solares is the only candidate with a clear record of being an advocate for residents like me.
