My name is Daniel Horton-Diaz, but you know me as Dan. I’m a dedicated public servant with a proven track record of service and commitment to the Florida Keys, South Miami-Dade, and Florida International University.
I have a strong background in politics and government that will allow me to get things done. I was elected as the 2016 Democratic nominee to represent the Florida Keys and South Miami-Dade in the Florida House of Representatives. I’ve also served as a Legislative Aide to State Senator Annette Taddeo in the Florida Senate, the Florida State Director for a voting rights nonprofit organization, and the District Chief of Staff serving our community on behalf of Congresswoman Debbie Mucarsel-Powell in Florida’s 26th Congressional District.
I believe that to best serve a community, a public servant should be a part of that community. I have a passion for service and I’ve served in leadership positions with the FIU College of Law, Leadership Miami Program, and Chapman Partnership for the Homeless. I’ve been recognized for my community service and leadership by the American Law Institute, FIU College of Law faculty, Leadership Miami Program, Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce, and Miami-Dade County Board of Commissioners.
More important than any accomplishments and accolades, I care about the people of our community. I know what it’s like to struggle and I use my experience of overcoming adversity as motivation to serve this community. I believe in the willingness and ability of people to unite against life’s most difficult challenges. I’ll always fight for this community and I won’t give up.
I hope that I can count on your vote on August 18. I’m counting on you!
