Daniella Levine Cava gets $230K in first mayoral campaign month

In her first month of campaign fundraising after announcing her run for 2020 Miami-Dade mayor, Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava shows she will be a force to be reckoned with — if not the outright front runner from Day 1.

Sweetwater mayoral runoff is a ‘shoot-out’ between arch enemies

Sweetwater mayoral runoff is a ‘shoot-out’ between arch enemies

Attack campaign jingles, scantily clad women at polls and the alleged attempted murder of a campaign worker whose car was reportedly shot at Monday morning as he drove around with a loudspeaker urging voters to support one of the mayoral runoff candidates. It may be one of Miami-Dade’s tiniest cities, but elections in Sweetwater always promise […]

Two-faced Mayor Francis Suarez wants to kick kids off Melreese

Two-faced Mayor Francis Suarez wants to kick kids off Melreese

Looks like Miami Mayor Francis Suarez talks out of both sides of his mouth.

Hialeah Mayor Carlos Hernández may be termed out, but his political action committee raised almost a quarter million since he was re-elected, including more than $200K was last month alone — most of it on a single day.

We can’t trust dishonest Jorge Fors

When it comes down to it — and there are less than 24 hours to vote — we can’t trust Jorge Fors with the future of Coral Gables. This is a man who cheats on his property taxes for eight or nine years in a row — filling out a bogus homestead exemption on a […]

Secretly funded PAC attacks Ralph Cabrera with mystery mailers, lies

The commission seat runoff in Coral Gables has gotten nasty with back-to-back hit mailers attacking former Commissioner Ralph Cabrera with lies and innuendo.

Coral Gables candidate Jorge Fors has it all wrong on annexation

In what looks like yet another desperate attempt to gain votes through fear and misinformation, Coral Gables candidate Jorge Fors sent an email blast Wednesday vowing to fight annexation. But Jorgie-Come-Lately — who apparently hasn’t been to a single town hall meeting on the annexations — got a few things wrong. “The reality of annexation […]
