Who Will Emerge in Coral Gables Election–Reformers or Followers?

See the résumés of the various candidates.

There are new runs, re-runs and also runs, a little bit for everyone.

Will there emerge a commission in this city that leads the city manager to a process of organizational reform, tight budgets, no new taxes and fees and suspend irrational spending on unafordable capital projects like redecorating Miracle Mile.

The Coral Gables municipal election ballot is now set with 11 candidates, including two incumbents, competing for three seats in the April 12 municipal election. Deadline for candidates to qualify was noon Friday, Feb. 25.
