Miami Beach commission candidate to remain on ballot


Miami Beach Commission candidate Sherry Kaplan Roberts on Monday survived a legal attempt to kick her off of Tuesday’s general election ballot.

A local blogger filed a lawsuit against Roberts on Friday, claiming she didn’t live in Miami Beach – a requirement to run for office there.

“I am very pleased, not only for myself but for my supporters in Miami Beach,” Roberts said. “The judge made a declaratory judgment that I am a resident of Miami Beach. That I have done community service for years and I am an active member. It couldn’t have gone any better.”

John P. Morgan brought the complaint against Roberts. He has also filed an election complaint with the state.
