– Born to a wealthy family in New York.
– Married to Robert Cava, who is of Italian descent.
– She adopted the ‘Cava’ last name of her husband because it sounded Spanish. She was just ‘Daniella Levine’ until she ran for commissioner. “I did think it would communicate that I spoke Spanish — even though it’s not a Spanish name, it’s an Italian name,” Daniella said. (see report below)

Levine Cava’s quick bio

Born to a wealthy family in New York, the Columbia Law graduate moved to Miami in the early 1980s to be with a young Miami doctor she was dating, Robert Cava. After Hurricane Andrew in 1992, she headed up the county’s foster-child program. In 1995, she founded the Human Services Coalition of Dade County, an advocacy group and social-services provider that’s now known as Catalyst Miami.

In 2014, she quit her job as Catalyst’s director to run for the District 8 county commission seat, covering South Miami-Dade. With backing from the Democratic Party she unseated incumbent Lynda Bell, a conservative former Homestead mayor and president of Florida Right to Life.

Not Hispanic: She added the ‘Cava’ last name until she ran for commissioner

The win made Levine Cava the commission’s wealthiest member, with a net worth now topping $6 million thanks to stock holdings and property she owns with her husband, Robert. Though known as Daniella Levine professionally since moving to Miami, the candidate used her more Spanish-sounding name to run for the commission. “I did think it would communicate that I spoke Spanish — even though it’s not a Spanish name, it’s an Italian name,” she said at the time.

Selfish?

She’s giving up her final two years on the commission to run for mayor because Florida law required her to resign before qualifying for the race in May.

Rather than quit right away, she made her resignation effective in November, requiring either an appointment or special election in early 2021. If she had left office immediately, the seat could have been filled during the regular county elections in August.

Critics on the commission complained of the cost of a special election in the midst of an economic crisis caused by COVID. The scenario also would let Levine Cava run for her seat again if she doesn’t become mayor, but the candidate ruled out that possibility. “I’m done being a county commissioner,” she said.

Tougher Coronavirus measures: lockdown, tracers

After the coronavirus hit, Levine Cava became the commission’s top critic of outgoing Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s response. In a series of letters released to the media by her office, Levine Cava demanded the county hire contact tracers to bolster the state’s lackluster efforts, provide hotel rooms to give isolation options to people in cramped living quarters and issue a countywide directive to stay at home.

Pro-Sanctuary

Levine Cava sits on the more liberal wing of the nonpartisan commission’s collection of Democrats. A bipartisan majority in 2017 backed dropping “sanctuary” policies at county jails under pressure from the newly inaugurated president, Donald Trump. (Of the three commissioners running for mayor in the nonpartisan Aug. 18 primary, Levine Cava and Xavier Suarez, an independent, voted against the change; Esteban “Steve” Bovo, a Republican, voted for it.)

REPORT: Miami Herald (Oct. 4, 2020) | Archive

Levine Cava believes there is systemic racism

Levine Cava, a commissioner since 2014, took a different view [than Bovo’s]. “We have systemic racism in county government,” she said, without elaboration.

Will liberal Levine Cava turn Miami-Dade into another Portland?

Bovo, a former Republican state representative running as a conservative champion of law and order, called Levine Cava “radical” and at risk of turning Miami-Dade into a “another New York or Portland” by shifting county dollars from core services like police and roads to social-services programs.

Portland? Liberals are destroying Portland.

Daniella Levine Cava Eating at Restaurant while Trying to Keep them Closed [Pics] (2020 Miami-Dade Candidate for Mayor)

Posted by FactReal on November 1, 2020

DO AS I SAY, NOT AS I DO
This past August, Daniella wanted restaurants to operate at 25% indoors — just opened enough so she can enjoy a meal inside a restaurant.

DaniellaLevineCavaEatingRestaurantCovid
Someone took picture of Daniella and tweeted:

Daniella Levine Cava wants restaurants at 25% capacity meanwhile she goes to them when they’re currently operating at 50% capacity.

Daniella Levine Cava, as Miami-Dade commissioner, pushed to keep us in indefinite lockdown because of coronavirus. Although it could seem like she cared, people were suffering and businesses were failing with the strict regulations imposed by our local politicians in order “to protect us.” But don’t worry those regulations did not apply to them.

Note to ponder: Was she eating out of styrofoam plates? Isn’t she the Climate Champion with cape an all? [Scroll down for photo]

REPORTS OF DANIELLA LEVINE CAVA FIGHTING RESTAURANT RE-OPENING THEIR DOORS
Miami Herald reported on Aug. 25, 2020: [emphasis added]

Miami-Dade will let restaurant dining rooms reopen Aug. 31 after nearly two months of emergency closures to fight the spread of COVID-19.

Mayor Carlos Gimenez said he was loosening the rules as the county’s infection rate hovered near the red-line level of 10%.
[…]

County Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava, running to succeed Gimenez as mayor, said Miami-Dade should only allow restaurants to operate at 25% capacity indoors, rather than return to 50% capacity that Gimenez plans when dining rooms reopen Monday.

Miami Herald reporter Doug Hanks tweeted in August 2020: [emphasis added]

In a statement, Miami-Dade mayor candidate @votedaniella said MIami-Dade should limit restaurant dining indoors to 25%. @MayorGimenez is preparing to allow 50%. The other candidate, @SteveBovo, opposed the original Gimenez closure of dining rooms in July.

Daniella Levine Cava & Black Lives Matter (2020 Miami-Dade Mayoral Candidate)

Posted by FactReal on October 31, 2020

DANIELLA LEVINE CAVA AGREES WITH BLACK LIVES MATTER (BLM) & THEIR DESTRUCTIVE AGENDA?

Daniella Levine Cava holding a “Black Lives Matter” sign during protest on May 30, 2020 in Miami, Florida.
Notice Levine Cava was NOT wearing her mask — it was May 2020 — the middle of the coronavirus pandemic.
We understand — it’s tough to talk while wearing a mask in 90 degree weather!

Daniella Levine Cava, candidate for Miami-Dade mayor, at Black Lives Matter protest riotDaniella Levine Cava, Miami-Dade mayoral candidateDaniella Levine Cava, Miami-Dade mayor candidate. Black Lives Matters. BLMDaniella Levine Cava at Black Lives Matter protest
During the BLM protest, Levine Cava seemed to suggest that police officers don’t care about black people and are actually killing them for no reason. She said: “We know that our police have training, but still, these things happen…No more killing of black people…Black lives matter!”

Daniella Levine Cava failed to mention that in most of the cases we are seeing, people refuse to follow police orders, resist arrests, and/or attack the cops. Many have criminal record. That is why it is important to wait for the justice system to handle the case and wait for the evidence. She should understand that — isn’t she a lawyer? Even in the George Floyd case which made many Americans cry, there are new revelations that the knee-on-the-neck is part of police training manual. [more on that later]

Video:

LEVINE CAVA: “I’m here at Friendship Circle, there are hundreds of people here. They are angry, they are frustrated. Enough is enough.

It happened in Minneapolis, it happened in Atlanta, it happened in Louisville. It happened everywhere. It could happen here. And you know what? This is too much, too much.

Everybody here is standing in solidarity, with the Floyd family. Everybody here is saying, we can’t be quiet. We know that our police have training, but still, these things happen. We know we can do better. We have to build trust, we have to have conversation, we have to acknowledge the pain, the pain of so many people.

We are all today here because we cannot stand this anymore. No more. No more killing of black people. Not on my watch, not on your watch, not in Miami, not in Minneapolis, not in Atlanta, not in Louisville. No where! That’s it.

Black lives matter! What more do we have to do to make the people have the respect and dignity. 2020 and we’re going backwards! Backwards, not forwards. Enough is enough!”

MAN: “That’s our future mayor!”

IS DANIELLA LEVINE CAVA ANTI-POLICE?
Daniella Levine Cava tweeted an image with the anti-police acronym “ACAB” [All Cops Are Bastards] on a protest sign.

A Miami Herald reporter kept copy of her tweet and the letter of the police union telling her that by tweeting the ACAB image she was denigrating the law enforcement community and fanning the flames of division.(Archive) Afterwards, Levine Cava posted a tweet blaming her staff and claiming that the ACAB image “would never had been posted had I known what was communicated in those abbreviations.” All she had to do is “google” the acronym before posting anything online.

DanielleLevineCavaAntiPoliceTweet

SHE WANTS A PANEL WITH SUBPOENA POWER TO INVESTIGATE…THE POLICE…NOT THE CRIMINALS
With her ACAB tweet, Levine Cava not only offended police officers, but also used the opportunity to push her anti-police agenda, “We must fully fund and strengthen the County’s Independent Review Panel.” She wants a panel of citizens [BLM or Antifa?] to investigate and review the behavior of police officers. Will they review the behavior of citizens who disobey police orders, resist arrest, attack or mouth off an officer as well?
Levine Cava: “We are going to tamp down activities… that allow rogue officers to persecute our people:
Video: “We are going to end knock-less warrants, to tamp down on foot-chasing, and various other activities that escalate violence and allow rogue officers to persecute our people. And so, all of these things together are part of my police reform program.”

Commissioner Levine Cava’s statement on ‘Independent Civilian Panel for Police Oversight’ that will have subpoena and investigative powers: (Archive)

Summary:
– “As part of her continued efforts to address police accountability and systemic racism, Miami-Dade County Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava joined her colleague…today in approving a plan to create an Independent Civilian Panel (ICP) that will be empowered to investigate allegations of misconduct involving Miami-Dade County Police Department officers. “
– The ICP will be permanent in the charter if approved by voters…
– “Since the death of George Floyd, people across the country and around the world are decrying the deaths of Black people at the hands of police officers and are demanding justice.”
– The ICP will be “made up of civilians to help investigate allegations of police misconduct.”
[Civilians like Antifa or Black Lives Matter members?]
– The legislation will ensure that “those who deliberately neglect protocols and target residents with abuse of force will be held accountable by the very residents they are sworn to protect.”
BLM, anti-police, police abuse, antifa, miami,

DOES LEVINE CAVA KNOW BLACK LIVES MATTER IS A MARXIST ORGANIZATION determined to destroy American society?
Will Levine Cava now claim she didn’t know?

“Black lives matter” is not just a catchy slogan. It is actually the innocuous-sounding name of a radical, Marxist organization, which along with the fascists (so-called ANTIFA) are currently terrorizing American cities.[Yes, Fascism belongs to the Left.]

Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse Cullors: “We are trained Marxists”

CULLORS: “The first thing, I think, is that we actually do have an ideological frame. Myself and Alicia in particular are trained organizers,” she said. “We are trained Marxists. We are super-versed on, sort of, ideological theories.”

BLM TERRORISM:
In case Levine Cava doesn’t know how the Black Lives Matter organization has been terrorizing citizens and destroying our cities, here is a summary video. Just because one is angry or yells “Black Lives Matter,” doesn’t give one license to terrorize others or destroy property.

We need a mayor who will keep us safe and wait for the evidence before passing judgment. We need a mayor who will not fall for catchy slogans!

Strange: Dems Added 47k Miami Voters just before Election after Years of Losing 1000’s of Voters

Posted by FactReal on November 22, 2012

According to the voter registration statistics from the elections department in Miami-Dade County, Florida, Democrats were losing thousands of registered voters every year after Obama got elected in 2008. Then, suddenly few months before the November 2012 election, Democrats were able to convince over 47,000 voters in Miami-Dade County to register as Democrats despite the failed policies of Obama and other Democrat politicians.
It’d be very interesting to find out what tactics did Democrats use to convince all those people.

2011 (6,968) 529,179
2012 47,308 576,487
From January through December 2009, Democrats lost 14,060 registered voters in Miami-Dade County. Over 12,000 voters abandoned the Democrat Party in 2010 and almost 7,000 in 2011. Suddenly at the end of 2012, about 47,300 voters in Miami-Dade decided to disregard the national malaise brought by Obama and the Democrats (i.e., the poor economy, high unemployment, the Libya scandal, etc.) and registered as Democrats.

2012 Breakdown: (Table below)
Early 2012, Democrats registered less than 1,000 voters, but soon lost 3,175 in March and 1,075 in April. In the third quarter, they started adding about 5,400 voters per month. For the October report they duplicated that average. And for the November report, Democrats surprisingly were able to convince almost 20,000 people to register as Democrats.

Broward Election Problems…Gov. Rick Scott’s Fault?

Posted by FactReal on November 14, 2012

The Sun Sentinel recounts some of the problems with the Elections Department in Broward which of Florida’s 67 counties “was the last to finish counting ballots, posting final tallies in two commission races at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday — seven days after the polls closed.”

Summary of the election problems in Broward:

  • Nearly 1,000 unaccounted-for ballots were found in a Lauderhill warehouse one week after the election.
  • Erosion of confidence: Elections staff had to search of “every nook and cranny, high and low” for the 963 ballots found Monday…”Something about this seems to erode all the confidence. It’s disgraceful,” Parkland mayor Michael Udine said.
  • Worker fatigue delayed the recount of votes.
  • Ill-trained poll workers appeared to be overwhelmed by the crush of voters at the polls on Nov 6.
  • “Get the vote out” pressure:(?) Broward County Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes said, “The difference with this election, there was a close race between two presidential candidates, and pressure put on everyone to get the vote out. We’re erring on the side of caution.”
  • Parkland mayor Michael Udine said what he noticed in his city’s seven precincts was representative of problems reported all around South Florida. “In one precinct, a scanner broke, people waited in lines for four hours, they ran out of ballots and people voted in a room the size of a broom closet,” Udine said. “Residents are outraged over this.”
  • Sandra Yeager, VP of the Broward chapter of the liberal group ‘League of Women Voters’ put some of the blame on worker training. “It seems a little hit and miss. They are not the youngest people in world, and they forget. So they need to adapt a training manual, because they are not mastering it,” she said.
  • Glitches with the elections computer systems that led to “many provisional ballots,” long wait times for voters, and calls to county help desks “that were not very helpful” were some of the problems Yeager and other League members saw.
  • “They lose ballots, then they find them…I don’t think it’s an honest deal down here. I think they should fire everybody, and get new people in there,” said former Michigan resident Arnold Ruskin.

But leftists still want to blame GOP Gov. Rick Scott:

Statewide, the League [of Women Voters] is part of a coalition of advocacy groups calling on Gov. Rick Scott and lawmakers to appoint a task force to review the problem-plagued election. The League, along with the NAACP, the AARP, the ACLU and others cited problems including budget cuts to the state’s election supervisors, a reduction in early-voting days, and a ballot that was one of the longest in Florida history.

Is Gov. Rick Scott’s Fault?
These liberal groups and other leftists are aggressively trying to transfer the blame to Gov. Rick Scott for the election problems in Florida. Of course, they don’t mention that the longer ballot resulted because the courts kept rejecting the Florida Legislature’s ballot summaries as misleading. The proposed Florida amendments on the November ballot were the result of two years of work by Florida lawmakers who were sent to Tallahassee by voters in 2010 to reform the state government. Leftists hated the Florida amendments because they “were put there by the Republican-led Florida Legislature and would advance the GOP’s low-tax, small-government agenda,” as reported by the AP in October 2012.

And the budget cuts and the reduction in early-voting days are necessary, because the state is trying to balance the budget while the economy is still in the tank. The Left has opposed every spending cut proposed by Governor Rick Scott, because they are addicted to the government programs and because they want to corner him into raising taxes as the only way to avoid a budget deficit. Whatever Scott does, they will find a way to blame him…and other Republicans. Why? Because they want a Democrat Governor and a Democrat Legislature in Tallahassee.
