After 24 years as mayor of Hialeah, Ra™l MartÌnez stepped down in November and someone he had worked with closely was elected Nov. 15 to succeed him.

He is Julio Robaina, for five years president of the City Council. He was elected for a four-year term, garnering nearly 60% of the vote in the primary with no need for a runoff.

Mr. Robaina, 40, the son of Cuban immigrants, spoke of his objectives for the 24-square-mile, 80-year-old city with about 1,600 employees and an annual budget of more than $202 million. He was interviewed shortly after taking office by Miami Today international editor Michael Hayes. This is an excerpt from the weekly profile article published in Miami Today.
