Inquiring minds want to know  who is going to be the next mayor of South Miami, now that the current mayor, Phil Stoddard is termed out. So, lets take a look at what’s going on right now.

The next election is being held on Tuesday, February 11, 2020 and as of today Mark Lago is the only one that has filled out the paperwork to run for mayor.

It’s not going to be an easy ride for Mark,as some very reliable sources tell me that Horace Feliu wants to be your next mayor and that he’ll announce sooner or later. Horace, served as mayor a while back and  he sure wants to serve once again.

The big surprise of the day is that  I hear that current Commissioner Josh Liebman, wants to be called Mr. Mayor, or your Honor  and is willing to do what it takes to move on up the political ladder.

By the time current Mayor Philip K. Stoddard has completed his final day in office, he’ll have taken care of some truly major issues, or at least got things moving forward, such as the approval of the redevelopment of the  Shops of Sunset Place, as well as the moving forward on the plans to redevelop the Winn-Dixie property into a mixed-use residential tower called South Miami Town Square. And  perhaps the dream of a brand new city hall  just might happen, as well as a new police station being built right next to the Post Office.

That’s truly a lot to  have bring forth during the last  few years of this administration. And now I wonder out loud: What remains to be done?

Would love to hear from residents of the city, What would you like to see get done in the next two years and  What are your top priorities?

If you have any ideas, feel free to send an email to with your list of top stuff to do. You can also post your comments on our website or on Facebook.

  1. Are you nuts? That would be like another 10 years of her husband. It’s not up to M.M. to add names with no evidence. You can’t even spell her name! Get lost!

  2. Gray Read for South Miami mayor! This will ensure the FIU trustee’s theft of the city hall property for pennies on the dollar. Ms. Read’s election will also ensure the completion of the illegal spot zoning of various South Miami properties including the Fellowship Church and 7800 Red Road properties. Go Gray; working just as hard as her husband for special interests!

  3. Does anyone remember how Lago voted on the Fellowship Church application? I do. Residents living close by implored the Planning Board to reject the application. Lago was on the Board at that time. He voted yes for a project that was a much higher density than the abutting Estate-2 zoning district. Lago thinks nothing of throwing residents under the bus. What a piece of work! And then he expects residents to vote for him? He is in his own little fantasy world. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    Liebman also wants the City to go very high density.Look at his voting record and his comments. $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
    What happened to Kevin Griener? Another FIU proponent of high density. Did he decide to stay out of this race to see who will be next in line to promote a high rise, and very expensive, over crowded city?
