I applaud the Miami Herald’s article on June 18 article Ex-candidate sues to have North Miami mayor removed, about politicians who hold office but do not live in their respective districts. It appears these politicians do not care about the consequences of violating the public’s trust or lying during the qualifying process because they know that ultimately they will get away with their lies and corruption.
This has been the case in North Miami. Politicians think they are above the law and the judicial system, and the state attorney’s office has not taken a firm stance at eradicating this problem.
It’s time for Miami-Dade County, and South Florida, to get tough on political corruption and politicians who are not qualified to hold office or who violate the public’s trust.
