Oops! Another behind-the-scenes deal that the Heat owners let slip out with Micky Arison’s e-mail announcement of an extended contract deal. The Heat’s lobbyist, an attorney, drafted the e-mail and then back-pedaled to say it was premature.
We know that in 14 years the county has received the grand sum of $300,000 from the Heat owner, a billionaire who has used creative math to hide profits, with no protest from our elected officials.
Let’s all remember these giveaways at budget time when they want to sock it to the property owners and raise our taxes.
