Vince Lago is coasting into a second term as Coral Gables Mayor after no one filed to challenge him.
Lago raised nearly $900,000 since filing for re-election in late 2021. He called his unopposed victory “a testament to all we have accomplished together over the past two years.”
Two City Commission seats are still up for grabs on April 11.
Four candidates – Ivette Arango O’Doski, Melissa Castro, Jackson “Rip” Holmes and Sean McGrover – are running to replace former Commissioner Jorge Fors in the Group IV seat.
Alex Bucelo and Ariel Fernandez are competing to succeed Vice Mayor Mike Mena in Group V.
Note: An earlier version of this story misspelled Sean McGrover’s name. We sincerely apologize for the oversight.
