Virtual Town Hall: Meet Ricky Junquera and Help Flip Florida
June 30, 2020 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In addition to deep community roots, this proud Cuban-American has Boston connections! Raised by a single mom in West Miami-Dade, Ricky studied Political Science at Boston University, where he spearheaded BU’s shift to biodegradable food-service products, and earned a Master’s in Intercultural Communications from Lesley University. He’s worked on numerous Democratic campaigns, e.g. Congressmen Joe Garcia’s and Henry Cuellar’s, and serves as the Outreach Vice Chair for the Miami-Dade Democratic Party. As Regional Press Secretary for Sierra Club, he’s an expert on coal ash, and led efforts to improve water quality in Flint, MI. He’s running for FL House-118 on a commitment to the environment, public education, gun safety, and healthcare.
WHAT: Virtual Town Hall with Ricky Junquera (you’ll have a chance to submit questions, too).
WHEN: Tuesday, June 30, 7-8pm ET.
WHERE: Your own home, of course.
WHY: This seat is nested within critical state Senate and federal Congressional districts that Dems need to protect in this heavily gerrymandered state… and it’s our last chance to get seats at the table before 2021 redistricting. Plus, he’s wonderful!
Stuck in the house like the rest of us, Ricky’s unable to canvass in person. Getting his name out there virtually is more important than ever… and that takes money. If you’re in a position to do so, please help him in this critical task. Thank you.
Onward, pandemic be damned,
– The Sister District MA-RI Team
