I just opened my absentee ballot for the stadium-renovation vote. The wording refers to an increase in the tourist bed tax and says that the Dolphins would receive $7.5 million a year, period. That is the complete sentence, not one year, not 10 years, not forever, no qualifier.
We are being asked to vote on this matter without being told how long the funds will be handed over. They really want us to approve an open-ended contract like this? Only in Miami-Dade County — correction, in the state of Florida — could a ballot this absurd be released.
