WLRN and Miami Herald Host Virtual Miami-Dade County Mayoral Forum

Charlie Riedel

The 2020 election for Miami-Dade mayor features a return visit from former county mayor Alex Penelas and three sitting county commissioners trying to block him from retaking his old post.

Also on the ballot: commissioners Esteban “Steve” Bovo, Daniella Levine Cava, and Xavier Suarez, along with two candidates seeking their first elected office: law firm supervisor Monique Nicole Barley and real estate broker Ludmilla Domond. Carlos Antonio de Armas, an Uber driver, qualified as a write-in candidate for mayor.
