MIAMI, FL – In preparation for the July 4th weekend, Miami-Dade Commissioner Audrey M.

This is Commissioner Edmonson’s annual plea to the public to refrain from engaging in celebratory gun fire during the July 4th celebrations and for an end to gun violence in general. Also attending the event will be other elected officials, members of local law enforcement and clergy.
