It’s already June?


Time is flying, which is surprising considering the gloomy weather we’ve been having the last week and a half. Biggie has been bouncing off the walls, as walks don’t cut it for a dog with his level of energy. Hopefully we will get a couple weeks of nice weather soon….

There is a lot to report on. Things with the FPL issue are going well and moving along quite fast. I was able to email back and forth with Commissioner Anderson (Coral Gables) about their stance, and while they have not yet passed any type of resolution, they are working hard to figure out the potential impact of the transmission lines on their city. Another municipality may be introducing a similar ordinance soon, although I’m not yet able to confirm that. As soon as I can, it will be up here. Next week, I will be meeting with an Associate Vice President at the University of Miami, as well as a Board Member from Canterbury Preschool (located on UM campus), about the impacts these lines will have on the university and the dozens of young kids at the preschool. A meeting is also being planned with State Representative Carlos Lopez-Cantera, but the date has not yet been confirmed.

Friday night was the Young Democrats Kickoff Reception at the Fontainebleau Hotel on Miami Beach. It was actually a very fun night. Started off with free drinks, which got everyone extra friendly, and turned out to be a great event to network and meet all kinds of interesting people. I spent most of the night hopping around from group to group, and made a couple new friends from all over Florida. Below is a picture of Henry Crespo, Outreach Vice Chair for the Miami-Dade Democrats, and I from that night.

Stay dry!
