The Democratic Progressive Caucus of Florida (DPCF) is pleased to announce its endorsement of Annette Taddeo in the upcoming special election in Florida Senate District 40. This endorsement highlights a progressive champion who will represent the interests of everyday Floridians in the Florida Legislature.
DPCF’s endorsement questionnaire covers a wide variety of topics, including charter and voucher school accountability, gun safety, state preemption of local control, and access to affordable healthcare. The caucus is committed to implementing progressive policies in Florida as a way to enhance quality of life and we cannot do that without legislative leaders like Annette Taddeo. Residents of SD 40 deserve a senator who will fight for them and not special interests.
The recent passage by the Florida Senate of the devastating education bill HB 7069 demonstrates that one vote can make a difference in our divided Senate. This election matters.
We applaud Taddeo for answering the call to run in this Miami-Dade district. The DPCF encourages its members from across the state to volunteer with the campaign to help achieve victory in the Special Primary Election on July 25, 2017, as well as the Special General Election on September 26, 2017.
