Special appearances by Democratic State Rep. John Patrick Julien and Miami Gardens Mayor Shirley Gibson
MIAMI, FL - Today, the Christian Family Coalition (CFC), Florida's premier human rights and social justice advocacy organization representing over 100,000 fair-minded Miami-Dade County voters, released exclusive pictures from its 2012 Miami-Dade Candidates Forum on Saturday, June 23rd at the Miami-Airport Hilton Hotel.
The Christian Family Coalition (CFC), issued the following statement:
"The response from the political establishment and the community at large was overwhelming, more than 200 community leaders and grassroots activists, heard from over a dozen of the most prominent local candidates, from the Florida State House to Miami-Dade County Hall. Perhaps the most impressive part of this historic event were the number of Democrats and Republicans who appeared, from Democratic State Representatives John Patrick Julien, Daphne Campbell, and Miami Gardens Mayor Shirley Gibson, to Republican State Representatives, Jose Felix Diaz, Michael Bileca and Jeanette Nunez, among others.
Our fair-minded, pro-family values transcend both political parties, we want to thank all the candidates who spoke at this important event.
Standing behind Anthony Verdugo, the following Miami-Dade judicial candidates from left to right: Enrique 'Rick' Yabor, Victor de Yurre, Lourdes Cambo, John 'Johnny' Rodriguez and Maria Elena Verde.
