Hialeah lawmaker files for Miami-Dade run

State Rep. Esteban Bovo, a Hialeah Republican, has submitted paperwork to run for the Miami-Dade County Commission.

He will be seeking to represent the Hialeah-Miami Lakes district left vacant by former Commissioner Natacha Seijas, who was ousted in stunning fashion in a recall last week that also threw Mayor Carlos Alvarez out of office. Bovo is the first person to launch a bid for the seat, though others have been rumored to be mulling over campaigns.

Bovo will likely have to resign from office, creating a legislative vacancy that has already drawn at least three candidates.

We are attempting to reach Bovo for comment.

I heard from a friend in in the SAO, Miami; that David Rivera, is being ask to turn himself in to avoid a messy arrest. Yikes!!! Think (if true) he will roll on Marco Rubio?


isn't bovo's wife the one who got censured for dissing hialeah?


This is the best man for the job!
