Former State Rep. Julio Robaina (R, District 117) and former Miami Mayor Xavier Suarez, running to replace county commissioner and mayoral candidate Carlos Gimenez in district 7 will share time next Tuesday with the Miami Young Republicans, aka the Biscayne Bay Republicans.
Both candidates will speak and present their differing visions for the county, discuss their history, take questions, etc.
It's not exactly a debate, said the group's president, Bradley Gerber. "Both candidates will speak and present their differing visions for the county, discuss their history, take questions."
The group's April meeting is free and open to the public and might present a good opportunity to hear from both men in the same place for the first time.
"Both of these gentlemen have long histories of public service in South Florida, and both have reputations for being hard-nosed, principled Republicans not afraid to share their opinions," reads the facebook invitation from the group.
The meeting begins with a social hour at 6:30 and an organizational meeting at 7:30 at John Martin's Irish Pub, 253 Miracle Mile.
