Francis Suarez Will Challenge Tomas Regalado in Miami's Mayor Race
In his announcement, Suarez took direct aim at Regalado's regime.
"This administration has failed to hire police officers when they have been budgeted, I have witnessed the mayor fighting with the police chief when he could have been hiring police officers," said Suarez, referring to the mayor's high profile and often bizarre tiff with former police chief Miguel Exposito.
Regalado's term has been far from impressive. It was this paper after all, with a bit of tongues in our cheek, that called for his resignation a year a half ago. However, he remains popular among the likely voters that elected him in the first place.
The election is set for November 5.
