Looks like Miami Shores Councilman Prospero Guillermo Herrera is starting his strategy to go to the Miami-Dade County Commission.
Herrera announced on facebook this morning that he would run in the council elections this spring. But we know it's just another stepping stone.
Last summer, after Ladra saw him at several high-profile fundraisers and meet-and-greets outside his little town, we figured he was preparing a run for a higher seat. We asked him at the RPOF Victory office grand opening in West Kendall and he said he was looking at the Miami-Dade County Commission seat in his district -- now occupied by Sally Heyman.
But first, he told us, he hopes to make mayor in the April elections in Miami Shores, where the top vote getter among the council members elected is named mayor. Then he hopes to run for county commission in Heyman's seat -- who was re-elected with no opposition last year.
We think Prospero (which is the best political name Ladra has ever heard, btw) has very good prospects of representing his area at the county level.
