Levine offers new vision for Miami Beach


I was dismayed by your Oct. 6 editorial endorsing Commissioner Michael Gongora for mayor of Miami Beach. You appear not to tell the whole story to your readers. If you go back to the promises he made in the last election, you will find out that what you claim to be accomplishments are not so. There is still flooding after heavy rain storms. Take a drive around the Beach after the next storm. The convention center has no clear plan, and the new senior center in North Beach is still not open. The city commissioners have piddled around and nothing is really done. No one has addressed the allegations of corruption, as with the previous election.

Your “yellow” journalistic attack on Philip Levine for daring to utter the word “mañana” is deplorable.

Levine offers a new vision for Miami Beach and is a welcome breath of fresh air after the incestuous years of the “good old boys and girls” reaping the rewards at the expense of Miami Beach citizens.
