I am being bombarded with mailings from political cowards who identify themselves as “True Progressives.”
They are filled with lies about Miami-Dade Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava, a candidate for Miami-Dade mayor.
In the 1980s, when I was a member of the Miami-Dade School Board, Daniella often came before the board advocating for special-needs children. After 10 years with Legal Services, Guardian ad Litem and the Department of Children & Families, she founded the Human Services Coalition, now named Catalyst Miami, to empower low-income families with tools to help them lift themselves out of poverty.
Since she was elected to the County Commission in 2014, she has been a tireless advocate for children, families, women’s issues and effective government. With energy, wisdom, she cares for the well-being of all people. Daniella’s life is a model of integrity and true public service.
It is deplorable that those who will not identify themselves seek to malign this distinguished public servant.
