Candidate Forum - September 20, 2016

The Children's Movement of Florida hosted a lively political forum in Winter Park that sent a clear message about how deeply Floridians care about early childhood education and health care for the state's youngest residents.

During Tuesday’s “Strong Start for All Children” Candidate Forum at the University Club of Winter Park, House District 47 candidates Rep. Mike Miller and Beth Tuura, as well as Senate District 15 candidates Rep. Victor Torres and Peter Vivaldi, pledged to support increased investment in early childhood. Despite a downpour before the event started, the turnout from Orange County residents was terrific. Among the attendees were partners from the Orange County School Board, the Children's Cabinet of Orange County, the Heart of Florida United Way, 90.7 WMFE, the University of Central Florida, and the Early Learning Coalition of Orange County.
