The 2016 election season in Miami-Dade County produced big wins for FAMU NAA Miami-Dade Chapter members. Returning to their seats for the City of Miami Gardens were Councilman David Williams, Jr. and Mayor Oliver Gilbert. Both David and Oliver help run Florida’s largest African American/Carribean American city. Dr. Steve Gallon, III was elected to the District 1 seat on the Miami-Dade County School Board which happens to be the fourth-largest school district in the United States.
The Miami-Dade chapter has a rich history of Rattler alumni in key positions within city and county government as well as education leadership. Congratulations to all Rattler elected officials.
