Fighters Support Donna Milo for District 2
The City of Miami Firefighters Local IAFF 587, announced their support
of Donna Milo in her campaign against District 2 Miami City
Commissioner Marc Sarnoff.
There are some who had speculated that the firefighters would support
Kate Callahan, but Robert Suarez, President of the union indicated that
they had decided to support Milo because they felt she had the best
chance of winning.
The firefighters had the Mason-Dixon Polling company do a poll of the
District in August that showed that 55% of those polled would support
someone other than Sarnoff. Milo also led the other contenders in name
recognition and in a head to head contest against Sarnoff.
Milo who ran for Congress last year, has demonstrated both a clear
grasp of the issues facing the voters of District 2, and the practical
campaign skills needed to wage a winning campaign against Sarnoff.
While the firefighters do not bring a lot of money to a campaign, they
do bring significant political experience and resources, the most
important being feet on the ground, as they demonstrated when they
helped Sarnoff get elected in 2006.
This time out, the firefighters, who like many others are tired of Marc
Sarnoff and his antics, have decided that he has worn his welcome out
in the City of Miami.

With what everyone hopes is a Miami poised on the brink of real return,

venues, Milo is a candidate questioning the stewardship of the City.
