Jean Monestime appointed to Electoral College U.S. Presidential Election

The November 2012 presidential election in the United States is one of the most important events in world politics that could change and affect other countries greatly. For the upcoming election in the U.S., Jean Monestime was appointed to Electoral College.


The Electoral College requires the services of thousands of government officials and workers to ensure that the election will be done fair and right in choosing the next most powerful man in the world, which only happens every four years.

For Haitian-American Jean Monestime, working for the upcoming elections is a big obligation, and at the same time a huge privilege. Monestime, who is currently the Commissioner in Miami-Dade County's 2nd district, has been made a member of the Electoral College of the Florida Democratic Party. He is joined by 28 others in representing the state of Florida. The U.S. Electoral College is a set of selected individuals that represent a particular institution or organization in electing a candidate for a certain government office. The members are usually appointed just a few months before the actual elections.

Jean Monestime has been a resident of Miami-Dade County for more than thirty years. Being elected as commissioner in 2010, he is the first ever Haitian-American to have served the county for the position.

The good news was publicly announced in the end of July by Haiti's Consul General François Guillaume II. In a phone interview, Commissioner Jean Monestime said that it was honor to be able to represent both Florida and the Haitian-American community in such a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity that will have a great impact in the November 2011 U.S. presidential election turn-out.
