I want to inform our community that Miami-Dade County commissioners will discuss various issues about incorporation and annexation at a meeting at 9:30 a.m. on Feb. 27 at County Hall, 111 NW First Ct. in Miami.

We need the entire community to attend this meeting and tell our commissioners that we don't want more layers of government and duplication of services, or more elected officials to pay huge salaries too, or more lobbyists, or more corruption, or more government interference in our daily lives.

If you want to save yourself from higher property taxes, higher insurance costs, higher fees, higher utility bills, specific-interest re-zoning and bigger government, please attend and tell the commissioners you don't want this. Bring friends, carpool or go with Metrorail, and join us in saying no to breaking up our area.

Remember: When has more government ever cost you less?
