Kudos to Miami-Dade County Mayor Carlos Gimenez for holding to his promise of not raising taxes. He’s being bullied by the president of the police union and other members of the police force, but he’s loyal to his word and in a politician that’s very courageous. Letter writer Charles Miller claims that Mayor Gimenez is destroying the police department, but he lives in Davie and I suspect that he’s one the the very many that works here, but pays no taxes in Miami-Dade.
