Rene Garcia hits pavement to help out during COVID-19


With the Cities of Hialeah and Hialeah Gardens having the second-largest amount of cases of COVID-19 in Miami-Dade County, it is virtually all-hands-on-deck for elected officials in those two heavy Cuban-American voting cities.

County Commissioner Esteban “Stevie” Bovo, who is also running for mayor of Miami-Dade County, has been out delivering food to the elderly and keeping constituents apprised on social media on about the spreading virus.

Bovo’s friend and political ally, former state Senator Rene Garcia, who just so happens to be running for Bovo’s county commission seat, has also been hitting the pavement in Hialeah and helped open the drive-up COVID-19 testing site at Amelia Earhart Park in Hialeah.

Garcia is like a walking Public Service Announcement (PSA).
