$’s For Candidates in Coral Gables–What Are We Getting at Election Time

These are two fundamental unfair obstacles to our election process in Coral Gables:

    • The election should be in November when all other political units vote since this will increase voter participation;
    • Campaign contributions drive the results in great part because the election date favors a low turnout–a few core supporters of well know incumbents can be enough votes to win, since so few people vote here.

    This election favors Kerdyk and Slesnick because of the date.
