Miami Dolphins owner Stephen Ross doesn’t get it.
I voted early on the stadium renovation. I also voted No. But I don’t feel disenfranchised, I feel vindicated by the state House, which did not bring the issue to a vote.
No more welfare for billionaires. House Speaker Will Weatherford put the people, not politics, first. Too bad the Senate didn’t get it. Hopefully, taxpayers will remember the senators who supported this plan and vote them out.
I feel bad that maybe 4,000 people will not get some temporary employment. And Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez is right: Voters should have a voice in this issue, but not at Miami-Dade’s expense.
Perhaps Ross would like to pay for another election for his hotel tax and give up any state incentives.
