Miami-Dade school board member Raquel Regalado says she is running for Miami-Dade County mayor.
The 40-year-old Regalado filed the paperwork on Monday. She’ll challenge incumbent Carlos Gimenez, who has held the office since 2011.
Regalado says Gimenez is out of touch with county voters.
“I think that a lot of the decisions that are being made at the county have more to do with who comes to visit the mayor, and what ideas they have; what lobbyists bring what proposals," she says.
