Only three women are running for the Miami Beach Commission. The only woman currently serving there reaches term limits in November.
Raquel Pacheco, a candidate for the Miami Beach Commission, just got a valuable endorsement from Ruth’s List Florida.
The Tampa-based group is dedicated to electing Democratic women who support abortion rights throughout the state. Pacheco is running to represent Miami Beach’s Group 1. She ran for the Commission’s Group 5 seat in 2019 but lost in a runoff to incumbent Ricky Arriola.
