First Miami-Dade mayoral candidate debate set

The Latin Builders Association will be hosting a debate Friday in Miami between the top hopefuls to replace recalled Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Alvarez.

Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina, County Commissioner Carlos Gimenez and former state Rep. Marcelo Llorente will appear at the LBA's meeting at the Big Five Club. The event begins at noon, with the program beginning at 1 p.m.

The debate will happen a day after county commissioners are scheduled to discuss setting a special election, likely in May, for voters to pick a successor for Alvarez and recalled Hialeah-Miami Lakes Commissioner Natacha Seijas.

Looking forward to a great debate and event. Correction the LBA Luncheon event starts at noon with an hour of networking and the luncheon starting at 1PM EST during which the debate will be held.

You can listen to the "pre-show" for the event on 880 AM The Biz.

I would like to know why ALL the candidates for mayor are not part of this debate? Why is Dr. Farid Khavari being excluded? Is it because he is not part of the "in" political group and is not beholden to any of the political king makers? Or is it because he is the only candidate who has very definate, specific solutions to prevent the economic meltdown of Miami-Dade? What has happened to having FULL press coverage?

THE REASON EVERYONE IS NOT INVITED IS BECAUSE THE SON OF GIMENEZ IS A MEMBER OF THE LBA. SO OF COURSE THEY WILL ONLY THE ONES THEY FEEL HE CAN BEAT. PLEASE LOOK IT UP. THE SON HAS THE SAME NAME AND IS A LAWYER OR A LAIR
