It serves no purpose for Florida senators to work part time for only $29,697.
Sen. Rene Garcia worked for Dade Medical College, which abruptly closed on Oct. 30. He was being paid $134,399 annually as a senior VP of governmental and community relations. Is this a conflict of interest or a kickback in the form of a handsome salary? He had to know of the school’s bad record, yet stayed for profits rather than doing the right thing for his constituents.
This makes it crystal clear why tax dollars are being siphoned from community colleges where the tuition is lower and results are much better. Our tax dollars were badly misspent on those who smell like crooks.
