As a child, Sen. Anitere Flores learned the importance of pitching in to make the community better. That early imprint stayed with her because she has devoted her professional career to public service ever since graduating with a law degree from the University of Florida.

As chairman of the Miami-Dade Legislative Delegation, Senator Flores strives to garner one voice from the 24 elected officials who go to Tallahassee and advocate on behalf of their constituents.

For this legislative session, her main goal is to make higher education more affordable and accessible to average families. In addition, she said, the delegation will work on making property insurance more affordable for South Florida residents.

As for hobbies, it’s her boys. Along with her husband, Senator Flores spends every free minute planning their schedules, watching them play, grow and learn.

Miami Today reporter Susan Danseyar interviewed Senator Flores in her district office.

    CPS took my grandchildren 2yrs ago. They have discriminate against me for the two years. I don’t have money to pay for a lawyer so they keep doing it over and over again. We need this stopped now.

    I was the investigator on the case and yes they will not open her case and they don’t even have a case plan. And they have never even taken the mother’s parental rights and don’t even have a case plan on file and they won’t even open her case it’s a sad situation in Hernando County .without a case plan they want it up given the parental great grandmother permanent guardianship of the two oldest children and the father who started it all permanent guardianship of the younger child who molested the daughterand who started it all the mother never even was tested positive for any kind of drugs nor neglected her children.Kelly case has been open since 2008 and they just keep closing it and all the files in the courthouse is missing in Hernando County.and her attorney said that we can get Dcf on due process .
