This post is part of our voter guide for the Aug. 28 local and primary elections. Head to the main landing page for a guide to the key races and decisions being made this election.

District 8 curves through South Miami-Dade and goes north from about Southwest 320th Street northeast to about Southwest 112th Street. The district goes as far west as Southwest 227th Avenue and east toward Biscayne Bay. It includes areas like Cutler Bay, Homestead and Palmetto Bay.

Barreiro’s opponents are Johnathan Burke and Daniella Levine Cava.

Barreiro did not return the questionnaire that we sent to the county commission candidates. You can find more information at the website linked to on the lefthand side of the page, and this Miami Herald story about his main source of funding: American Dream Miami, the mall that current District 8 commissioner Levine Cava voted against.
