Raquel Regalado: Move Court Facilities Out Of Downtown Miami To ‘The Center Of The County’

Raquel Regalado, daughter of Miami Mayor Tomás Regalado, thinks that Dade County should consider building new courthouse facilities farther west in the county and away from downtown Miami.

According to the Miami Herald, Regalado wants the county to partner up with municipalities to build the new facilities. Although she didn’t specify an exact location, she said that the new facilities should be ‘in the center of the county’.

Users of the current courthouse in downtown Miami say that deteriorating conditions in the crumbling facility impedes the court’s ability to function properly.

Regalado has been trying to take credit for a recent no vote by county voters on a half-baked plan to issue bonds for a new courthouse. She recently said that she is considering a run for County Mayor.
