Charter reform: right direction, but not far enough

There is an old and often used saying that every long journey begins with a single step. We all know, however, that not all steps cover equal distance. When it comes to the Miami-Dade Charter reform questions on the Nov. 6 ballot, the choices presented are important steps, but clearly do not take us far enough. True reform requires a more comprehensive approach like the ones that were put forth by the 2007-08 Charter Review Task Force on which I served. Only then will we bring the transformative reform needed in Miami-Dade County government.
