Working Together for South Florida
The Miami-Dade County Legislative Delegation was created when the state elected officials recognized the importance of their numbers and believed that as a united Delegation, speaking with a single voice, they could exercise political influence and visibility far beyond their numbers. The Delegation as a whole, form a pivotal voting block, whose power allows them to dramatically influence the creation, direction and enforcement of public policy.
Today, there are 25 members, 5 women and 20 men representing the largest and most populated county in the state of Florida. The Delegation members have been called upon to work as advocates for varied constituent interests-developing an ever expanding legislative agenda-as well as addressing the concerns of their own particular districts.
