Candidate Forum Recap

Big thank you to everyone who attended our incredible 2021 Miami Beach Elections Candidate Forum, and especially to the candidates themselves for sharing their ideas and their passion with all of us!

The City of Miami Beach is holding a general election for Mayor and 3 City Commission seats, and every Democrat who is running joined us. It was an extraordinary discussion, with tons of great ideas about the future of our city, powered by questions submitted by our members beforehand. We had 75 participants on the Zoom and a lively chat session to boot!

ICYMI, you can watch the replay on our YouTube channel. We highly recommend it!
