Candidate Forum for Special Election for Senate District 40- POSTPONED

  • Coral Reef Senior High School 10101 Southwest 152nd Street Miami, FL, 33157 United States (map)

The League of Women Voters of Miami-Dade County and its partners have postponed the Candidate Forum scheduled for Wednesday, September 13 due to Hurricane Irma.  A future event date will be announced as soon as possible. Make plans and stay safe.

On April 20, 2017, Florida Senator Frank Artiles for District 40 resigned, prompting Governor Rick Scott to call for a special election to fill the vacant seat. The League of Women Voters of Miami-Dade County and our Sponsors are honored to host the Candidates Forum for Florida Senate District 40, and cordially invites residents from District 40 to join us as the candidates put forth their political platforms for voters’ consideration for the Special Election on September 26, 2017.

The candidates:

Jose Felix Diaz - Republican

Annette Taddeo - Democrat

Christian "He-Man" Schlaerth - No Party Affiliation

Are you election ready?
