Coral Gables Endorsements
In connection with the April 9, 2013 City of Coral Gables election the SAVE Dade Action PAC endorses the following candidates:
The SAVE Dade Action PAC endorses Ralph Cabrera for Mayor of Coral Gables. Commissioner Cabrera’s early support of SAVE's effort to pass the Coral Gables domestic partnership ordinance proved to be critical in its adoption. While the current Mayor did vote for the ordinance and submitted a favorable questionnaire, Ralph Cabrera was the most active Coral Gables elected official during the entire process and his hard work for SAVE and the community has earned him the SAVE Dade Action PAC endorsement.

Commission Group 2:
The SAVE Dade Action PAC endorses Ross Hancock for Commission Group 2. Ross Hancock has long expressed his support for LGBT equality to SAVE’s community. He has worked closely with LGBT groups to assist with equality issues that affect people in Miami-Dade County. While both of his opponents submitted questionnaires and came in for interviews, Ross Hancock is clearly the strongest supporter of LGBT equality. He answered all of SAVE's questions in support of equality, and for this he has earned the SAVE Dade Action PAC endorsement.

Commission Group 3:
The SAVE Dade Action PAC endorses Mary Young for Commission seat Group 3. After careful consideration we believe that Mary Young is highly qualified to serve the City of Coral Gables. Only one of her opponents, Patricia Keon, who submitted a questionnaire and was interviewed, is known to support LGBT equality. Mary Young has worked on specific equality issues in her business career and continues to mentor many young LGBT people in theirs. Mary Young has earned the SAVE Dade Action PAC endorsement.
