MIAMI-DADE, Fla. – Mayor Daniella Levine Cava announced she is closing the quarter with an impressive haul of almost $470,000 raised, amassing a total of nearly $2.8 Million for her re-election through her campaign and political committee. This strong show of support rounds up a powerhouse month for the Mayor, highlighted by notable endorsements from SAVE Action PAC, Sierra Club Miami, the South Florida AFL-CIO, Unite Here Local 355, and seventy-five percent of local mayors in Miami-Dade County who believe in Levine Cava’s battle-tested, results-driven leadership for our community.
“I am humbled by the overwhelming support from our community, a clear endorsement of our shared vision for the future of Miami-Dade,” says Mayor Daniella Levine Cava. “Together, we’re fighting to build on our important work delivering solutions for longtime challenges, while making Miami-Dade better, safer, and more prosperous for everyone in our community. I’m grateful for every person who has contributed to our campaign.”
Daniella Levine Cava made history in November 2020 as the first-ever woman mayor of Miami-Dade County, following a distinguished career as a relentless advocate and attorney for South Florida families. She is also Miami-Dade’s first Jewish mayor. Since assuming office, Levine Cava has consistently delivered results for Miami-Dade County, from improving public safety to lowering costs for residents, supporting small businesses, and taking action on climate change. Last month, the Mayor’s hard work listening and collaborating with stakeholders and elected leaders across our community earned bipartisan praise and yielded a swift passage of our county’s $11.7 Billion budget, which prioritizes spending on public safety, infrastructure, transportation and mobility, public health, economic development, and our environment.
“This fundraising milestone is a testament to Mayor Daniella’s strong, bipartisan community support from all across the county,” says Campaign Manager Kayla vanWieringen. “With the election being less than a year away, one thing is exceedingly clear: Miami-Dade is ready to reelect our Mayor.”
Since Mayor Daniella Levine Cava took office, Miami-Dade County has emerged from a global pandemic as one of the most recovered economies in the nation. She has championed climate resilience through climate-friendly investments, from replacing thousands of polluting septic tanks with sewer systems, converting the County’s transportation fleet to electric, and investing in shore power at Port Miami. Focused on addressing Miami’s affordability crisis, she has championed the funding of more than 32,000 workforce and affordable housing units in the pipeline and has protected 25,000 tenants from eviction. Additionally, Mayor Levine Cava passed historic tax cuts and cut red tape to build a business-friendly environment that benefits residents and our local economy – and continues to champion public safety efforts that have helped Miami-Dade defy national trends in crime.
