3 candidates qualify for HD 118 Special Election

by The 100 Companies

Three candidates, each of a different political persuasion, have qualified for a Special Election to represent House District 118 covering a narrow, unincorporated strip of southwestern Miami-Dade.

They include:

No-party construction executive Frank De La Paz, who ran unsuccessfully for a Miami-Dade Community Council seat in 2016.

Democratic electrician and former Community Council member Johnny Farias, who ran for HD 118 last year.

Republican lawyer Mike Redondo, who enjoys financial backing from his party’s state leadership.

Gov. Ron DeSantis called the Special Election after appointing former HD 118 Rep. Juan Fernandez-Barquin to serve as Miami-Dade Clerk of Courts and Comptroller.
