Milo shares her vision for Miami’s future and clarifies her stance on gay marriage
Former Planning Advisory Board Vice-Chairman and community activist Donna Milo is gaining popularity and setting new standards since she announced her candidacy for City of Miami Commissioner for District 2. The election is set to be held November 1st and I had the opportunity to meet with her recently for a conversation about her aspirations for Miami.
Milo is no stranger to the political scene. She ran as a Transgender Republican for Congress in May 2010 for Florida's 20th congressional district. Milo came in third with an impressive 22 percent of the vote, which is a high percentage considering that records indicate the third-place candidate typically receives between 10 and 18 percent of the vote.
"It was my run for Congress in 2010 that I - as well as others - realized that I was very successful at pulling in constituents and voters,” she said. “It was shortly after that when I realized that I still had the compassionate desire to do something positive in my own community right here in Miami, so I announced my candidacy for Miami Commissioner in March."
