This November, it's so important that we stand TOGETHER with pro-equality candidates -- and we're proud to announce today SAVE Action PAC's endorsements in the November 4, 2014 elections for Miami-Dade County municipal offices!
These candidates for local office were hand-picked by fellow members of the local LGBT community. After a rigorous interview process, these are the candidates for Miami-Dade municipal office who most impressed our endorsement panels.
Without protections from discrimination for LGBT people at the state and federal level, we must count on our local leaders to push for pro-equality policies. We're confident that once in office, these local candidates will do just that, and SAVE Action PAC is proud to endorse them.
By standing TOGETHER with these local leaders, we can score a win for equality on November 4th:
Last week, SAVE also issued these endorsements for statewide office, U.S. Congress, and the Florida legislature. Don't forget to vote for these pro-equality candidates at the top of your ballot:

SAVE Action PAC's positions are as follows:
YES on Amendment 1
Florida Water and Land Conservation Initiative
Why? Local geography and ecology make South Florida especially vulnerable to environmental damage and lowering of quality of life. This initiative will help preserve the quality of life expected by South Florida's LGBT residents and beyond.
YES on Amendment 2
Florida Right to Medical Marijuana Initiative
Given that members of the LGBT community -- particularly men who have sex with men -- continue to suffer disproportionately from the HIV/AIDS pandemic, and given that South Florida is one of the hardest-hit places in America by the disease, it is SAVE's position that legalization of medical marijuana in Florida is warranted for the purpose of conducting research into finding new HIV/AIDS treatments.
NO on Amendment 3
Florida Prospective Judicial Vacancies
In practice, if incumbent Gov. Rick Scott loses re-election, Amendment 3, if passed, would give him the power to appoint judges in the vein of other anti-equality Scott appointees, even though a different candidate will have won.
