I wanted to thank the Herald for reporting on Doral Mayor Luigi Boria’s ongoing conflict of interest in our city ( Family ties mar land deal, July 21).
Finally, the public can see what those closely following city issues have known for some time: The mayor is using his office for personal gain.
I hope that the county’s ethics commission will see through the shell game that he is playing with his finances — passing his investments to family and friends to publicly promote the appearance of propriety, while at the same time using his dais to directly influence his own interests.
Since winning his election, the mayor has used his platform to grease the path for his real-estate investments, first declaring Spanish as an official language of our city and also trying to “relieve traffic” by developing the roads toward his land holdings. He promoted these as wise choices for our city, but, coincidentally they both make his land investments more marketable to Latin American investors, his target market.
