Mike Suarez, one of nine candidates in a winner-take-all
special election January 12 to replace former City of Miami Commissioner Angel
Gonzalez, claims two city workers broke election laws while campaigning for
frontrunner Wilfredo "Willy" Gort over the Christmas holiday.
"These people have a total disregard for the rules and a blatant disrespect for
Apartments at 2870 NW 18th Avenue.
The candidate alleges a resident told him that Gonzalez was stumping for Gort. It is against the law for city employees to campaign while on the clock. Suarez took photos of Gonzalez strolling the building's open-air hallways, as well as pics of his city-issued Chevrolet Cavalier parked in the complex's lot.
