ISSUES: Commissioner Xavier Suarez on Vizcaya’s Future

Since Mayor Carlos Gimenez unveiled his plan to privatize Vizcaya Museum and Gardens last month, two opponents on this issue have stepped forward to offer other options; school board member Raquel Regalado — who is running for county mayor — and Miami-Dade County Commissioner Xavier Suarez — who has yet to confirm whether he will run. In a joint op-ed in the Miami Herald this week, Regalado and Suarez call the proposal to privatize premature and lay out their plan which would include encouraging community input.
