Florida’s one hundred and fourteenth state house district is currently vacant. It was represented by Democratic Representative Daisy Baez until she resigned on November 1, 2017. A special election for the position of Florida House of Representatives District 114 has been called for May 1, 2018. The seat became vacant following Daisy Baez’s (D) resignation. Her resignation came after she reached a deal with the Miami-Dade State Attorney’s Office to plead guilty to a perjury charge related to her place of residence. Javier Fernandez ran unopposed in the Democratic primary. Andrew Vargas defeated Jose Pazos in the Republican primary. Liz de las Cuevas is running as an independent candidate.
The church is located at 5275 Sunset Drive, near Sunset Elementary School. Park in the lot to the west of the church.
