There were many recognizable faces at the Micheal Gongora announcement this past Tuesday. One of them was Former City Manager Jorge Gonzalez. There is speculation that Gonzalez is planning a return to City Hall this election cycle.
The SunPost asked him if he was planning on running for either the commission or for mayor:
“I’m exploring all my options,” said Gonzalez.
The former city manager instantly found a friendlier face to chat up, and denied he was spending his time on the golf course.
When his attention was again regained, the SunPost asked Gonzalez if a possible campaign of his might have a negative tint to it with all the recent corruption surrounding the city he said:
“There is going to be a negative tint to any campaign for anyone that runs for anything. That is just the nature to politics. I served here for 12 years with distinction. And if you look around at Miami Beach and it’s a far better place than it was 12 years ago. A lot of that has to do with my contributions as City Manager. “
