The Miami Herald editorial board — not the world’s most utterly reliable source, but one worth considering — endorses Tom Korge for Mayor saying his “experience on key city boards coupled with his vision for change offer a winning mix.” This is slightly surprising since the don’t-rock-the-boat Herald usually has a strong pro-incumbent bias. Bodes well for Korge.
In Group 5 they endorse Kerdyk, no surprise, see above on incumbents.
In Group 4, they say this:
In the packed field to replace 20-year veteran Commissioner Wayne “Chip’’ Withers, three of the seven candidates stand out: insurance salesman Rene Alvarez, lawyer Frank Quesada and clothing businessman Brad Rosenblatt. Each offers energy and imaginative ideas, but Mr. Alvarez is our pick.
I was starting to thinking I’d end up Quesada, but maybe it’s time to take a more careful look at Alvarez too. It’s interesting too that they don’t put Sanabria in their front rank.
