MIAMI – Miami-Dade Public School Board member Dr. Marta Perez alleges Lt. Gov. Jeanette Nunez has insisted people not support her campaign to keep her seat or “bad things will happen.”
Her District 8 opponent Monica Colucci’s campaign tells CBS4 that Perez is responding like this because she’s in a losing position, calling it an act of desperation.
“It’s a nightmare of intimidation to people who support me at every level,” said Perez.
Dr. Perez has served on the school board for 24 years in Miami-Dade.
She faces significant opposition in her re-election bid, alleging a former staffer left after receiving threats.
