Re the Sept. 26 story, Shopping center proposed in West Miami-Dade’s Horse Country: Developer Carlos C. Lopez-Cantera, Sr. is seeking a change in the Miami-Dade County Comprehensive Development Master Plan that will be to his financial benefit. His son is the Miami-Dade property appraiser-elect.
One would have hoped that Lopez-Cantera, Jr. would have had the decency not to run for office knowing his father hopes to tear up the Comprehensive Development Master Plan, but since he did not, the West Kendall Community Council and the county commission should teach the Lopez-Canteras an ethics in government lesson. Otherwise, Miami-Dade will continue to add to its reputation for crony capitalism.
