Commission Candidates for 2021

Its campaign season in Coral Gables and the yard signs will be appearing any day now as at least a dozen candidates eye becoming your next Mayor or Commissioner in The City Beautiful.

The Mayor is elected to a two-year term and all Commissioners are elected to four-year terms on a non-partisan basis, with two Commission seats up for election each municipal election.

The City of Coral Gables holds municipal elections every two years, in odd numbered years in April.

  1. Coral Gables needs to be less concerned about the local economy, and MORE concerned about being a child and family friendly community…….Upgrading its Athletic facilities would be a positive step.

  2. Alexander Haq is an interesting choice. A young candidate that could bring some much needed change.

  3. Can something be done about campaign signs that are still displayed from November 2020? It’s about to get very messy again with yard signs, etc.

  4. Here’s an idea: since we now have sent 27 police officers to Washington in order to add firepower to thousands of soldiers armed with machine guns why not elect a new mayor and commissioners and send them all to DC? We’d be safer.

  5. Raul leaves, Jose enters.
    William Shakespeare’s play Hamlet. Marcellus, a guard, who talks to his philosophical comrade of him, Horatio, says: “Something is rotten in the state of Denmark…” (Act-I, Scene-IV).

  6. Jose Valdes-Fauli is the Mayor’s brother. The one who along with Keon want a concrete jungle in Coral Gables and who support the build up of Miracle Mile and its developers.
