DeSantis sets dates for election to replace Alcee Hastings – South Florida Sun Sentinel

Until the vacancy is filled, Hastings employees continue to staff the office under the supervision of the Clerk of the House, but can’t provide anything close to full representation, and there is no voting authority. The staffers can’t take positions on policies but can assist constituents with general information and continue with casework in which they attempt to help people with issues related to federal government agencies.
