Looks like Hialeah Council President Isis "Gavelgirl" Garcia-Martinez has read the writing on the wall and is beginning to hedge her bets.
While she has been campaigning with su alcaldito Carlos Hernandez, she took a little walk through the parking lot Saturday at the JFK library, on the last day of early voting, and had a private chat with former State Sen. Rudy Garcia, who is running against Hernandez for the mayor's post.
Neither would say what they talked about, but it seemed very friendly and serious and cordial.
Gavelgirl said it was not about the campaign. Garcia said it was a personal matter. "Something that had happened a while ago between her and I," he told Ladra. "It's more of a personal issue than a political one. I've known her family for a long time.
Still, Ladra bets that Gavelgirl is making nice because she knows that su alcaldito is freefalling (like in a ball of flames). We know she would rather work with Garcia than with former Mayor Raul Martinez, who is also in the race and seen by many as the front runner.
