Kendrick Meek and Hispanic community members met today in Kissimmee to launch a new grassroots group of supporters called "La Comunidad Hispana Con Meek."
"We are focused on reaching out to Floridians from all communities, to listen to their concerns and respond with solutions. Hispanics in central Florida expect elected leaders to bring new jobs home, and that is my focus for hardworking families in this area and throughout Florida. We know how hard the Hispanic community in Florida is working, and families are not enjoying the rewards of this increased effort. My fight is for the everyday people of our state, and against the powerful who put the status quo ahead of us," said Kendrick Meek, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.
Kendrick and area supporters met to launch "La Comunidad Hispana Con Meek" at Nuevo Sabor Dominicano Restaurant in Kissimmee this afternoon.
Kendrick will be in Miami this Sunday at Little Havana's Calle Ocho Festival alongside grassroots campaign supporters and volunteers collecting petitions for the campaign's historic petition drive. This will be the first campaign in statewide history to collect over 112,476 petitions helping Kendrick qualify for the ballot by petition.
