A New Direction for Miami?
Polls are closed in Miami, which will elect a new mayor to replace Manny Diaz. It looks like it might be quite a replacement. Tomá...
Tomás Regalado has been favored over fellow commissioner Joe Sanchez. Sanchez was a Diaz ally, while Regalado has been Miami's "in-house naysayer," as the Miami Herald says.
Regalado has voted against a billion-dollar tunnel to the Port of Miami, the baseball stadium in Little Havana and just about every other project and initiative Diaz proposed. In short, a win for him will mean big changes at City Hall and send a clear signal that voters (in low turnout) ended up quite unhappy with Diaz's boom-and-bust tenure.
But governing as a naysayer is quite a different matter than being a dissenting vote on the city council. One to watch.
