The Gwen S. Cherry Black Women Lawyers Association, Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc., Dade County Alumnae Chapter and the National Action Network - Miami-Dade Chapter is having a free community judicial candidate forum on Monday, August 4, 2014, at 6:00 pm at New Birth Baptist Cathedral of Faith International at 2300 NW 135th Street, Miami, FL 33167.I went to one of these judicial events and they are a must! I knew who I wanted to vote for after hearing the Judicial Candidate speak and then talking with the judges. Thank you for having this event and telling Eye on Miami about it! I wish I were going to be in Miami to go to it.
"While judges do not write laws in the same way legislators do, to the extent that they interpret and apply the law, a judge's role is equally important - especially to the people directly affected by their decisions.
We urge voters to come out to learn about the judges and candidates who seek this privilege and responsibility. Refreshments will be provided and candidates will be available to meet and greet members of the community. The forum is free and all are invited."
