Thank you for the Sept. 14 article Ethics Commission clears Doral Mayor Luigi Boria. Of course, the commission has no choice but to clear the mayor since he recused himself from voting related to his personal interests in the Grand Floridian Project.
But I hope residents don’t overlook that the mayor initially hid his connection to the project. Thankfully El Nuevo Herald investigated, uncovered and reported those efforts.
It’s a shame the Ethics Commission doesn’t have the authority to render an opinion on whether the mayor lied to the voters. Commission investigator Larry Lebowitz did the next best thing when he said that “the mayor’s money was inextricably linked to the initial capitalization” of the project.
