This unofficial website is maintained by two of the official Miami-Dade Democratic neighborhood organizers for precinct 644, Martha Schoolman and John Funchion. We’re friends and neighbors who got involved because we wanted to find concrete, constructive, and local ways to improve our electoral representation at all levels in the wake of Trump’s election. We both work as educators–Martha in the English Department at FIU and John in the English Department at UM. Both of us also have children in the Miami-Dade Public School System. We represent you as voting members of the Miami-Dade Democratic Executive Committee (DEC) along with Shed Boren, President of the Coral Gables Democratic Club. Shed, it should be noted, isn’t associated with this website, so our endorsements and opinions aren’t necessarily shared by him. We are fans of his commitment to the local CG Club though.
