Anti-Walmart Activists Are Running For A Seat On Board Of Midtown Miami District In Next Week’s Election

Two anti-Walmart activists are running for seats on the Midtown Miami Community Development District’s board of supervisors.

Grant Stern and Peter Ehrlich are both on the ballot in next week’s election. Stern and Ehrlich will be unable to vote for themselves however, since they both don’t live in the area.

Walmart needs an agreement with the CDD to obtain a building permit, since a portion of the proposed store falls on CDD land. The CDD hasn’t yet signed a deal.

In September, the CDD board voted to spend $100,000 on hiring a land-use lawyer to fight Walmart’s plan to remove on-street parking.
