Vote ‘NO’ on New Municipalities Miami Charter Amendment (Election: Nov. 2012)

|CREATING NEW CITIES MEANS MORE TAXES & MORE BUREAUCRATS
If Miami-Dade voters approve the charter amendment for the creation of new municipalities on the November ballot, it will make it easier to create cities out of unincorporated Miami-Dade which would lead to double-taxation (county taxes and city taxes), a new layer of politicians and bureaucrats trying to control your life, new costs (pensions, salaries, benefits for the politicians and labor unions), duplication of services, etc. Currently, residents in unincorporated Miami-Dade pay the lowest property tax rate and have to deal only with county officials.
The commissioners legislation (pages 9 -11) behind this proposed charter amendment states that groups pushing for the creation of new cities will have less requirements and more time to collect signatures to force residents in unincorporated areas of Miami-Dade County to become a new city. If the voters approve this charter amendment, the pro-city groups will have 6 months to obtain signatures from only 20% of the electors in the proposed incorporation area. The current ordinance calls for 90 days to obtain 25% of the electors’ signatures.
INCORPORATING INTO A NEW CITY IS BAD FOR YOUR POCKET & YOUR LIBERTY
