Everyone Running for Miami-Dade Mayor

Categories: Politicks
Candidates running for Miami-Dade mayor in the special May 24 election to replace recalled Carlos Alvarez had to register by 5 p.m. today. There are very few surprises in the list of candidates (read: no last-minute Alex Penelas filing), but here's a look at your choices on the ballot in a couple of weeks.

  • Julio Robaina (Hialeah mayor since 2005) 
  • Marcelo Llorente (a former Republican state representative)
  • Carlos Gimenez (resigned from his seat on the Miami-Dade County Commission, which could trigger another special election)
  • Roosevelt Bradley (former Miami-Dade Transit director)
  • Luther "Uncle Luke" Campbell (2 Live Crew leader and New Times columnist)
  • Jose "Pepe" Cancio (former appointed county commissioner who replaced Miriam Alonso)
  • Jeffrey Lampert
  • Farid Khavari (an economist who ran as an independent in the 2010 Florida gubernatorial election on a platform to create a state bank) 
  • Gabrielle Redfern (bicycling activist and former Miami Beach Commission candidate)
  • Eddie Lewis (former candidate for Miami-Dade tax appraiser) 
  • Wilbur Bell

Hmm..Transit Director running for mayor? From what I've seen nothing has improved in terms of new trains! Yes expanding the rail lines...but much needed up grade in trains and more new buses!

There are four rafters on this list. Who here wants to bet that one of those four will get elected? After all, Miami-Dade is the moron capital of the US. smh


Let's hope Miami can get it right this time around. Either way glad to hear Gimenez resigned, will lose the election and is gonna end up on the unemployment line where he belongs.


unemployment? He already collects 2 retirements!


Sick. I need to get career advice from that guy.
