Coral Gables candidates set for election in April
Ten candidates have qualified to run for office in the April 9 Coral Gables elections, according to the Friday deadline to enter the race.
Three of the commission’s five seats are in contention: the mayor’s seat, plus the commission seats held by Maria Anderson and Ralph Cabrera, each of whom have termed out.
Candidates had a Friday deadline to qualify. As of Dec. 31, when the campaign finance reports were last filed, the candidates had raised slightly more than $334,000. The next campaign finance report is due March 8 and will cover the two-month period ending March 1.
Incumbent mayor Jim Cason is facing a challenge from Cabrera, who has been a commissioner since 2001.
