The No. 2 finisher in the race to represent District 10 on the Miami-Dade County Commission is making a play to fill another Commission seat.
Just a day after Gov. Ron DeSantis said he plans to suspend or replace the current Commissioner, Joe Martinez, Martha Bueno tweeted on Thursday that the Governor should put her in.
Bueno received 22% of the vote to Anthony Rodriguez’s 56% in the Aug. 23 election. Commissioner Martinez, meanwhile, is facing corruption charges for unlawfully accepting $15,000.
Martinez turned himself in and was booked, but has since attended a Commission meeting in his official capacity.
