|Really, Bruno Barreiro's wife or a warmed over Mayor for District 3 in the City of Miami?|
Qualifying for this election isn't over till September 23rd but there are already people registered to run.
For Mayor so far, we have Robert Ingram Burke, Christian Canache, Francis X. Suarez.
For District 3 - Frank Carollo is termed out - we have Zoraida Barreiro ($66,165), Alex Dominguez ($4,650), Olidia Lee Hernandez ($1,000), Alfonso M. Leon ($37,125), Miguel C. Soliman ($27,530), Daniel Suarez ($55) and Joe Carollo ($64,150).
For District 5 there is Keon Hardemon. He has already collected $178,734.44 as of Feb. 28th. I would like to know why his address is blocked out on the campaign reports.
There is also a PAC for a Stronger Miami ( I hope this has nothing to do with a Strong Mayor, if it does, don't vote for it, we learned our lesson with the County on this one). Jose Riesco is the Treasurer. Miguel Del Rivero is the Registered Agent. I don't see any money yet.
Joe Carollo counts as his donors, Kendall Coffey, Jacob Sopher who gave $4,000 if you include the corporations (the parking lot Sopher) and $5,000 from Century -- again many corporations, and Braman appears to be backing him big $8,000. Joe Carollo is rumored to have helped Carlos Gimenez in his Mayoral campaign.
Zoraida Barreiro has Juan Mayol, Miguel DeGrandy, Lasarte Law Firm, M& J Development and its Corporations $5,000, Jeffrey Berkowitz and Corps. $5,000 among others. Zoraida is Bruno's wife. OMG. Really.
Miguel C. Soliman got $10,000 from Adonel Concrete (Luis Garcia).
This District 3 will be a hard choice.
