The Miami-Dade Democratic Party Appoints Artie Leichner as Senior Policy Advisor

Miami, Fl - The Miami-Dade Democratic Party announced today that Artie Leichner has joined the Party Leadership as a Senior Policy Advisor. Artie’s primary focus will be advising Democratic legislative candidates in South and West Miami-Dade. He will use social and traditional media to enhance the name recognition of candidates and advise them on messaging.

A former teacher, First Vice President of the United Teachers of Dade and Treasurer of The South Florida AFL/CIO, who currently serves as President of the nascent “Deep South Democratic Club,” Artie brings a wealth of experience and strong communication skills. In taking on this important role, Artie has also decided to suspend his State House campaign.
