Mayor of Dorado plans to seek new term
By The Star Staff
Dorado Mayor Carlos López Rivera on Thursday announced his intention to seek a new term as mayor.
Accompanied by figures from the Popular Democratic Party (PDP) such as resident commissioner candidate Pablo José Hernández Rivera and former Gov. Alejandro García Padilla, López Rivera affirmed that he will continue “at full speed and with more strength” with his plan called “Vision Dorado 2035.”
The mayor faces an open challenge from Speaker of the House of Representatives Rafael “Tatito” Hernández Montañez, who made his campaign announcement weeks before López Rivera.
Although there were references to the House speaker, at no time was he mentioned by name or surname.
