From CBS4's Jim DeFede:
HIALEAH (CBS4) – At every campaign appearance, Julio Robaina touts his record as Hialeah mayor, reminding voters he did not raise property or business taxes in the city.If that report doesn't motivate you to vote, I'm not sure anything will.
“As the mayor of the second largest city in Miami-Dade County I had to face these challenges,” he has said on numerous occasions.
At its core the Robaina campaign is based on a simple premise: He will do for Miami Dade County what he did for Hialeah.
“I would hope not, he’s destroyed the city,” said Barbara Hernandez, president of union representing a majority of Hialeah’s 1,600 employees. “I believe he acted out of malice toward the residents and its employees.”
It's so easy to do. Early voting starts today.
"Early voting begins Saturday at 20 locations across Miami-Dade County, as the candidates for county mayor, Julio Robaina and Carlos Gimenez, head down the home stretch toward the June 28 runoff election," the Miami Herald reports.
However, thanks to Gov. Rick Scott, "...a recently changed Florida law, the early voting will span just eight days — June 18 through June 25. The polls will be open from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m." (Scroll down past the video for early voting locations in Miami-Dade County.)
Yes, this Rick Scott.
