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 bloc, whose numbers and cohesion allows them to dramatically influence the creation, direction and enforcement of public policy.
Today, there are 24 members, 6 State Senators and 18 State Representatives, representing the largest and most populated county in the state of Florida. 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.
