PALM BEACH COUNTY, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, August 9, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — We are proud to announce, after holding a forum in which ALL candidates were invited, the Palm Beach County Democratic Black Caucus has endorsed Michelle Oyola McGovern for Palm Beach County Commission, District 6!
Michelle has made diversity and inclusion hallmarks in her campaign. That’s why Michelle has organized a broad coalition of residents, elected officials and community organizations. Michelle is focused on the issues that matter to our community.
• Fixing the housing crisis
• Standing up for stronger gun safety legislation
• Protecting women’s rights
• Protecting our neighborhoods, environment and quality of life
• Supporting our public schools and education
• Ensuring fairness, equality and inclusion in every decision that is made
Michelle’s opponent, Matt Willhite, didn’t even show up to the Black Caucus meeting to discuss their issues. Matt has a long record of not showing up for issues that matter to us, but he is there for the NRA or his special interest donors when needed.

Michelle now serves as the Director of Government and Community Relations for a major healthcare system. She focuses on creating, guiding, and promoting positive relationships.
