Obdulio Piedra, born in Havana, a resident of Pinecrest, just entered the District 8 race. Thirty years of community service is his claim to fame. He says he is active in the Chamber of Commerce and was on the Charter Review Committee and the Budget Review Committee, appointed by Former Commissioner Dusseau. He said "My agenda is the people's agenda." Obdulio said that he thinks the UDB line issue has to be one of 'balance' -- and he admits that it will be part of the dialogue for this seat. He is right, especially with the Homestead Speedway trying to move the UDB line at this time. The speedway issue will bring out all the candidates UDB line stance.
His treasurer is Fernando Aran. He joins 5 other candidates and 2 rumored candidates in this race...see my blog. NEWS FLASH: Carlos Pereira has dropped out of the race.
