The Aug. 3 article “Proposal to change Miami-Dade County’s campaign finance laws is gaining steam,” explained the daunting task that hundreds of volunteers have undertaken in an effort to bring a campaign-finance reform law to a public vote. I applaud their efforts, including those from a group not mentioned, RepresentUS.
Miami-Dade Commissioner Daniella Levine Cava also has worked tirelessly on this issue and has been successful in her efforts to pass related anti-corruption ordinances in the county. Most important, our community has realized the magnitude of public corruption in the county and how destructive it is. It’s detrimental to fair and equitable representation, a fair bidding process and a fair voting process, and this cost us billions of dollars in business.
And it’s for these reasons, and others, that I have presented at County Commission meetings and provided my assistance in investigations. Corruption is a cancer on our society. And I am glad that many in our community are willing to stand up.
