PROPOSAL
Cancio writes:
1. I am running for Mayor to complete the former mayor’s term (approximately 16 months) and will NOT run for any position in the 2012 elections.
2. Will support Charter Reform: 8 year term limits, a fair salary with no outside employment, easier recalls, and a strong mayor form government.
3. Will implement fair budgets with no tax increases and will “cut the fat” out of government.
4. Have a proven track record as the only CEO applying to be the County’s CEO and have also been dedicated to this community as a former “interim” County Commissioner (appointed by the Governor) and community council member elected by the people.
5. Will decrease size of county government.
6. Will make it easier for businesses to get licensed.
7. None of my children are lobbyists or will be candidates for Miami-Dade County in 2012.
