For Miami-Dade County commissioners and Mayor Carlos Gimenez to approve even the first step in support of Stephen Ross’ request for any public money to assist with any stadium deal is absolutely crazy!
It is insulting to the voters to insist that this deal is different — or Commissioner Barbara Jordan’s assertion that it is “totally unfair to judge the proposal of the Dolphins because of the Marlins.”
If a recall election that unseated a mayor and one commissioner is not enough to see that the voters don’t want public financing of sports stadiums, then I guess they are doomed to repeat history.
See you all at the recall elections!
