Pink Snails arrive for Mayor’s Election Campaign

Certainly, this must be an attraction ordered up by the mayor and the city to entertain us during a most exciting election campaign. Perhaps the snails will be seen going from door to door asking for your votes. You will see your favorite candidates kissing a snail. The green commission of Coral Gables will laud the recycling of plastic into an even less useful purpose.
Clearly, this is a part of the mayor’s election campaign for reelection and his campaign platform–to
“Focus on the development and promotion of cultural assets...”
Yes indeed, these snails are a great representation of government and politics in Coral Gables.
The snails — 11-feet long and painted in a hue of hot pink — will be installed throughout the Gables. Among their habitats: two in Merrick Park near City Hall, four near the youth center and library and two in Ponce Circle Park. They will be therefor two months.
