Analysis of the 6 Proposed Amendments

——–Original Post———–
Several politicians have come out to say they will run to replace ousted Miami-Dade mayor Carlos Alvarez: Hialeah Mayor Julio Robaina, Miami-Dade Commissioner Carlos Gimenez, former State Rep. Marcelo Llorente, and Doral Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez. Others who might run: Miami-Dade Commissioner Joe Martinez, former Miami-Dade Mayor Alex Penelas and…of course…former Hialeah Mayor Raul Martinez.

Who is next? Maurice Ferrer and Joe Garcia…we know they love power.

If these candidates are serious about serving the community, they should refuse the mayor’s:
– Lifetime pension and benefits paid by taxpayers.
– High salary.
– Other perks: Car allowance, cellular, etc.

If they are serious about fixing the financial outlook of Miami, they should:
– Fight the public unions: Reduce their high salaries. Reduce/eliminate their exorbitant lifetime pensions and benefits paid by taxpayers. Collective bargaining for public employee means they are fighting against the taxpayer whose tax dollars finances government. Taxpayers are not present at the negotiation table.
– Rollback the tax hikes.
– Stop the Marlin stadium.
– Eliminate inefficient and redundant programs, positions, departments, etc.
– Review social programs: Check who indeed needs public assistance.
– Stop excessive spending.

If they want the respect from Miami voters, they should:
– Stop threatening to cut emergency and basic services as first solutions.
– Stop pandering and patronizing.
– Stop the cronyism.
– Stop the identity politics and the class warfare.
– Tell the truth.

    What about Lazaro Gonzales, did you forget that he is also a canditate for Miami-Dade County Mayor or are you trying to leave him out of the picture?

  2. […] Doral Mayor Juan Carlos Bermudez wants to be the next Miami-Dade county mayor, can we then expect that he will install red-light cameras all over the […]
