Carlos Gimenez Wanted More Powers for Commissioners (2011 Miami-Dade Mayoral Candidate)

Posted by FactReal on June 27, 2011

Against Voters’ Wishes
In 2010, Carlos Gimenez sponsored this legislation to give power back to the Commissioners.
File Number: 101218, Agenda Date 5/18/2010, Agenda Item 11A1ALTERNATE (PDF)
With this 2010 resolution then-Commissioner Carlos Gimenez wanted to return powers to the Commission even though just three years before, in 2007, Miamians had voted to take these powers away from the Commission because of their mismanagement and abuses.

Gimenez’s 2010 resolution is similar to the recent Amendment #5 on the May 24th ballot seeking to give powers to the Commission. On May 24, 2011, Miamians voted against giving more power to the County Commissioners because they saw Amendment #5 as a power grab by the Commission.

How many times have voters to say “No”?
