THE MINORITY VOTING POWER IN
BROWARD COUNTY IS BEING DILUTED

Call-To-Action

Tuesday, February 14, 2012 at 2 p.m. will be the opportunity for all of us to speak up and have our voices heard regarding redistricting. As I have stated before, all people should be represented at all levels of government.

 The numbers prove how diverse a community Broward County has become; our elected officials should represent our diverse communities and cultures. Thank you for those who came out prepared to speak on ITEM #48 last week, but weren't afforded the opportunity.  

Next Tuesday, February 14, 2012 at p.m., please bring that same momentum and speak out against the current redistricting map approved on December 13, 2011. All of our voices deserve to be heard, as we all deserve to be represented.
