MiamiHerald / Miami Beach will get a new mayor and two new commissioners this year. There are familiar names among the candidates and appealing newcomers. After interviewing all the candidates, the Herald makes these recommendations.
MAYOR: The race for mayor drama tically changed with the downfall of Commissioner Michael Grieco, who resigned from his commission seat on the dais and surrendered to authorities on Tuesday over his connection to an illegal campaign PAC.
He has been foolish enough to play fast and loose with the law, and paid the price, saving residents an overheated and divisive campaign. Now the coveted job of running one of the county’s most dynamic cities is up for grabs, sort of.
