From the Florida Libertarian Party (LPF) on July 31:

Sacha DuBearn, past director for the Libertarian Party of Miami-Dade, was sworn in as councilman on the Coconut Grove Village Council last night.

DuBearn, a local entrepreneur, will complete a four-year term caused by a vacancy.

LPF Chairman and long-time DuBearn friend Marcos Miralles says the city is fortunate to have him serve.

“The DuBearns have been very supportive of the LPF, its candidates, and our vision to empower communities throughout the state,” said Miralles. “It was an honor to have worked on his campaign in Miami, and it is a privilege to consider the DuBearns not only friends in liberty, but family when away from the political playing field.”

DuBearn is an active member of the Miami-Dade [Libertarian Party] affiliate, both as a contributor and frequent host to fundraisers in the home he shares with his wife, Abigail. The DuBearns regularly participate in community causes, especially many West Grove neighborhood projects.

“Sacha DuBearn on the Coconut Grove Village Council is a win for Libertarians across the country, but most importantly, a win for the West Grove community, a community that has been abandoned by the city of Miami for far too long,” Miralles said.

DuBearn moved to Coconut Grove in the 1990s, following a devastating car accident which led him to become a lifelong advocate for beneficial uses of marijuana and cannabinoids. Also a longtime advocate of environmental issues in his town, DuBearn was the only 2017 candidate pledging to investigate the dumping of toxic waste in residential neighborhoods by the City of Miami.

The Libertarian Party has more than 25 elected officials in Florida, and more than 170 nationwide.
