Open Letter to Mayor Carlos Hernandez, City of Hialeah, Florida

Dear Honorable Mayor Carlos Hernandez,

My name is Rubin Young and I am a Republican candidate for Florida Congressional District 23, running against Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz in 2022.

My reasons for this open letter is prompted by using my voice as it matters to protect the vital interests of our communities at large.

Mayor Hernandez, June 21, 2021, I visited your city today for the first time in 30 years and, while there, I noticed that former Mayor Julio Martinez's picture was not displayed on the wall side by side with other mayors who have served the City of Hialeah.

Respectfully, I'm writing to request the City of Hialeah include former Mayor Julio Martinez's picture on the commission chamber wall next to the late Mayor Dale G. Bennett as part of the city's history.

The right of self determination in local affairs is reserved and pre-reserved to the municipalities except as otherwise provided in the City of Hialeah's Charter.

I look forward to hearing from you soon and I pray that this request is honored in a timely manner.

You may reach me at


Rubin Young
