November Council meeting rescheduled to Nov. 27 for Swearing-In Ceremony

Wednesday, October 31, 2018 0 Comments


Since the results for the November 6 general election aren’t officially certified until the third week of that month, the Miami Lakes canceled the November 13 regular Town Council meeting and decided on a swearing-in ceremony for new council members on Tuesday, November 27.

Council members will take up the November 13 agenda at their regularly scheduled December 4 meeting, which would be the first for three new council members.

The town may schedule a special meeting in December to finish both agendas.

For the general election, two seats are up for grabs and a third seat was already filled after one candidate ran unopposed.

Attorney Jeffrey Rodriguez and business owner Xiomara Pazos are seeking Seat 2, which Councilmember Tim Daubert is leaving behind since he is term-limited.

Former government administrator Esther Colon and high-school principal Carlos O. Alvarez are embroiled in an intense battle for Seat 6, a district term-limited Ceasar Mestre well represented for eight years.

Councilmember-elect Joshua Dieguez automatically won Seat 4 on the Town Council when he ran unopposed, as the attorney is replacing Councilmember  Frank Mingo, who’s vacating his seat to run for State Representative.
