I’m tired of paying for county bonds for things that I don’t need or want. Children’s Trust, Jackson Memorial, the school district and now the courthouse. All these on top of many more outstanding bonds that the county (i.e. the taxpayers) are have to pay back with interest for years and years.

I encourage the Miami Herald to reveal the list of Miami-Dade County bonds that we are currently paying for before we put a vote out on another one for the courthouse. And while you’re at it, explain to the public what a bond really is.
