Second TV ad from Daniella Levine Cava to air during Democratic debate

The ad will focus on housing affordability within the county.

Miami-Dade mayoral candidate Daniella Levine Cava is releasing her second TV ad of the campaign Tuesday night, which will focus on housing affordability within the county.

As Levine Cava did with her first ad, the new spot is set to air as Democratic presidential candidates take to the debate stage. The 30-second spot was posted online Tuesday.

“An affordability crisis. It’s real and runs deep in Miami-Dade,” Levine Cava begins in the ad.

“For some, these are just headlines. But for many, it’s their everyday lives. Home prices are out of reach and families see their dreams of home ownership erased. And wages are not keeping up with the high cost of living. That’s wrong.

“… I’m Daniella Levine Cava and I’m running for County Mayor to change that. I’ll confront the crisis with real solutions. It’s time. Join me and we will chart a new future for Miami-Dade.”

The release of the spot comes just days after Levine Cava’s most recent fundraising numbers were announced.

Both she and former County Mayor Alex Penelas raised more than six figures in September, adding to already-impressive fundraising totals.

The cost of housing within the county has been a recurring theme for Levine Cava as she has campaigned to become the county’s first female Mayor. She reiterated the significance of the issue in a statement sent along with the ad’s release.

“Over the last six months, as I’ve campaigned in every corner of Miami-Dade County, one common issue continues to be at the forefront of the many challenges we face as a community. The affordability crisis,” Levine Cava said.

“It’s time that we move beyond accepting that the crisis is real, and start acting on it! As your Mayor, I will do just that. We need to tackle the high cost of living with higher wages. We need to reduce the cost of housing, now out of reach for so many.”

Levine Cava, who currently represents District 8 on the Miami-Dade County Commission, turned in 5,000 petitions supporting her candidacy earlier this month. She must submit 14,254 verified signatures by April 28 to qualify for the ballot via petition.
