I was disappointed in the Jan. 17 story Union wins commission pay vote; veto ahead, regarding the Miami-Dade Commission vote to return the 5-percent healthcare contribution to employees.
It failed to mention that Commissioners Jean Monestime and Sally Heyman had proposed an amendment to Commissioner Barbara Jordan’s proposal that would have returned 3 percent immediately and the remaining 2 percent before the end of the fiscal year.
Inexplicably, Chairwoman Rebeca Sosa did not bring the amendment to a vote, instead calling for the vote on the original proposal. It was that close to being resolved.
