State Sen. Anitere Flores, whose District 38 includes West Kendall, will brief residents on major issues likely to receive attention during the upcoming legislative session during a Kendall Federation of Homeowner Associations meeting on Feb. 20.
Open to the public, the event begins at 7 p.m. at Kendall Village Center Civic Pavilion, 8625 SW 124 Ave. (located opposite the Regal Theaters).
Casino expansion, public school funding, medical marijuana and in state tuition for undocumented students are among the timely topics Sen. Flores is expected to discuss, according to DonKearns, a KFHA board member.
Sen. Flores has served in the Florida Legislature since 2004 when she first was elected to the House of Representatives. South Florida voters then sent her to the Senate in 2010, making her the first Hispanic Republican woman to serve in both the House and Senate in more than 25 years. She is chair of the Communications, Energy and Public Utilities Committee.
“Sen. Flores is an outstanding leader who has always been responsive to our community,” said KFHA president Michael Rosenberg. “I’m thrilled that our residents will have the opportunity to dialogue with her about the hottest issues facing lawmakers this year.”
Described by Rosenberg as a community- based watchdog organization, KFHA has identified and addressed quality of life issues in the Kendall area for more than a quarter century. For information, visit www.kfha.org.
