Miami-Dade Players - June 2011

» Troubled public hospital system Jackson Health System hired Carlos Migoya, a banker who served for 10 months as an unpaid Miami city manager, as CEO. Migoya, who has no healthcare experience, replaces Eneida Roldan, who did not seek to renew her contract.

» Jim Cason, a retired U.S. Foreign Service officer, unseated Coral Gables Mayor Don Slesnick in a close three-way race. Slesnick had been mayor since 2001.
