It’s clear that the dedicated and talented Miami-Dade County firefighters and paramedics are viewed as simply a line item in the county budget. Mayor Carlos Gimenez refers to them as “149 filled positions.”
No, Mr. Mayor, these are not filled positions, but essential positions, employees who are protecting and serving the community. Perhaps we can transition from filled to unfilled the many administrative positions at the mayor’s office, which are not as essential.
