We sat down for the better part of an hour to talk with Daniella Levine Cava, the Bird Road (and Miami Herald) endorsed candidate for mayor of Miami-Dade County and its 2.7 million residents. If elected, Levine Cava will become our first female county mayor, and will give us a breath of fresh air in the form of a strong progressive with the solutions that actually match our considerable problems.
We talked about mental health, climate change, the corrosive effect of cynicism in politics, and what a Miami of the future might look like.
The Miami-Dade mayoral primary is Tuesday, Aug. 18. Be sure to check box #362 for Daniella. You can learn more about her at Daniella.vote.
