Coral Gables Election: Miami Herald Weakens its Position on Mayoral Candidate Vince Lago

An April 1 Miami Herald news article brought to light new information about Coral Gables Vice Mayor Vince Lago, who is running for mayor in the April 13 election.

Lago, along with other parents, signed a letter in October that was sent to administrators at Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, the independent Catholic girls school in Miami’s Coconut Grove that his children attend, saying that changes in the school’s curriculum to address the issue of racism were incompatible with the school’s religious foundation.

This softening in the recommendation is because of Lago’s apparent lack of support for the active teaching of race relations, including the widely understood concepts of systemic or institutionalized racism, the need to treat equally of races, and promote equal access and treatment of all races to social and economic benefits of our society, social safety nets, and municipal services and public security especially policing.
