Florida Politics: United Teachers of Dade endorse Daniella Levine Cava for re-election as Miami-Dade Mayor

Florida’s largest teachers union is getting behind Miami-Dade Mayor Daniella Levine Cava’s bid to keep her office for four more years.

United Teachers of Dade (UTD), which represents some 24,000 school system employees, endorsed Levine Cava over five others seeking to supplant her as the county’s top official.

The UTD Executive Board unanimously chose to back her, a press note from the Mayor’s campaign said.

“UTD is proud to endorse and support our friend and a champion of our teachers and public education,” said UTD President Karla Hernández-Mats, a 2022 candidate for Lieutenant Governor.

“At a time when some politicians seek to make our teachers’ lives and jobs more challenging, Mayor Cava is a breath of fresh air for parents, educators and students.”

Levine Cava said in a statement that she is “honored” by UTD’s backing.

“I am humbled to have once again earned the support of our teachers and school personnel who are committed to educating the next generation,” setting our children up for success in the classroom and in life,” she said.
