The Miami-Dade mayor and commissioners are using a cheap theatrical trick to influence voter opinion on the question of a possible increase in taxes to save the public library system from the chopping block. There are dozens of other areas in the county budget to find those dollars. They choose the public libraries merely to garner an emotional response from the voters. Let’s challenge them to do their jobs properly and go to other budget areas to balance the budget.
