Former state Rep. Julio Robaina wants to be South Miami mayor -- again

Julio Robaina, the Miami Republican who was term-limited out of office last year, plans to run for South Miami mayor -- a position he held nearly a decade ago.

Robaina said in an interview that he will challenge incumbent Mayor Philip Stoddard. "There is a lack of decorum in the commission and instability in City Hall," Robaina said, adding that he met with Stoddard to let him know about his plans.

Robaina left office in 2010 due to term limits and ran unsuccessfully earlier this year for Miami-Dade County Commission. He lost to former Miami Mayor Xavier Suarez.
