REPORTER: One who has not announced his candidacy but HAS NOT RULED IT OUT is former Hialeah Mayor Raul Martinez.

MARTINEZ: I’d have to analyze it, but right now I think it’s too early for me to make a decision.

I imagine that all the commissioners are very afraid, because any of them can also be removed from office now or in the next elections.
