Ruth’s List Florida again endorses ‘stalwart champion’ Eileen Higgins for Miami-Dade Commission re-election

So far, Higgins is unopposed.

Miami-Dade Commissioner Eileen Higgins again has the backing of Ruth’s List Florida, an abortion rights group that exclusively supports Democratic women.

It’s the third time the organization has endorsed Higgins, dating back to her successful 2018 Special Election run for the County Commission’s District 5 seat, to which she won re-election in 2020.

She’s now seeking her second — and final, due to term limits — four-year stint on the Commission.

“Commissioner Higgins is a stalwart champion for Democratic values in the community,” Ruth’s List Florida Political Director Cassidy Whitaker said in a statement.

Whitaker cited several of Higgins’ legislative efforts as key to the group’s continued support for her.

“She has worked tirelessly to bridge equity gaps by bringing transportation to underserved neighborhoods, increasing affordable housing, supporting minority-owned businesses, and defending the rights of low-wage workers, seniors and LGBTQ+ residents. An environmental champion, she passed the Miami-Dade County Fertilizer Ordinance, the strongest of its kind in the state of Florida.”
