SAVE Action PAC announced today it has endorsed three candidates in the upcoming race: Dan Gelber for Mayor, Mark Samuelian for Commissioner in group two and Michael Gongora for Commissioner in group three.
Taddeo is running for a seat in District 40 of the Florida State Senate, a post recently vacated by Frank Artiles after he went on a racist and homophobic tirade that resulted in him resigning.
Annette Taddeo, moved to the United States from Colombia at the age of 17 and has been a Miami-Dade resident for over 30 years. Since then, she started a family and founded LanguageSpeak, a successful small business providing translation services in more than 240 languages.
Richardson is running in Florida’s 27th Congressional District for a seat that is being vacated by longtime champion of equality Congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen.
Richardson made history when he was first elected to the Florida House of Representatives in 2012 with the support of SAVE, becoming the first openly gay state representative in Florida. During his time in the House, Richardson has been an effective leader within the Democratic Party and able to work across the aisle to produce results. Richardson has made bold strides toward reforming the criminal justice system and pushing for sensible gun control laws. For the past three years, he has been fighting in Tallahassee to protect LGBTQ youth from the dangerous and fraudulent practice of conversion therapy.
Our team is working diligently to plan fundraisers and organize our army of volunteers to support Richardson in his historic bid for Congress. Electing him to the House will be a pivotal part of the our continuing efforts to resist the current administration’s attacks on the LGBTQ community.
