The Feb. 25 article Budget battle scars was a nice feature on Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez. He is a genuine leader, as the scars and sometimes negative press show. It is not often that we run across elected and appointed officials who have the common sense and good judgment to lead the majority of us to the promised land anymore.
It’s never fun sticking to your core values when the vocal minority is constantly bashing you. We need leaders to do the right thing and to make the tough choices. Our country needs more leaders like Mayor Gimenez.
