The Miami Herald — which IMHO has very little credibility in Coral Gables elections given the weirdness of its endorsements two years ago (Renee Alvarez? Really?), has chosen to endorse Cason, Lago and Keon. As I’ve said previously, I’m a bit torn in the Mayorality race, think Hancock won the debate in Group II, and am as yet undecided in Group III.
There was a time I thought the Herald’s electoral endorsements were useful input into my decisions, especially for more obscure races. Ever since I started doing my own research, I’ve largely abandoned that view.
I guess I will make up my mind after the next cattle-call style candidates’ debate.
The choice for mayor is clear. The current mayor thinks governing with an ink pad and a stamp is good enough in between photo ops and self congratulations for work done in Cuba. The challenger on the other hand doesn’t want to govern by abdication, and is not afraid to ask the tough questions and hold the manager accountable to his constituents. Advantage- Cabrera
