Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi has notched a key endorsement in his bid for reelection — that of Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez.

“Michael is a great representative and a proper steward of our community,” Gimenez said in statement last week.

The endorsement itself is not surprising: Pizzi, who is running against former Miami Lakes Mayor Wayne Slaton, has been a Gimenez supporter.

Pizzi also released a statement week, saying he was “extremely proud” to receive the county mayor’s endorsement.
