Daisy Black was a mainstay in El Portal politics.
She served as mayor and a long time councilwoman of the quaint little village just North of Miami’s Little Haiti neighborhood, and remained active in local politics even when she wasn’t holding a seat on the dais.
Black announced earlier this year that she would broaden her political resume to run for the District 3 Miami-Dade County Commission seat against incumbent Audrey Edmonson.
After collapsing at a candidate forum Wednesday, Black died. She was 68.
