Accidental Mayor Gimenez Reveals Political Ineptness
August 1, 2011 Leave a comment
The timing of the Mayor’s now well published contracting of a platoon of deputy mayors at exceptional salaries, raises deep doubts whether the lessons learned from the Mayor Alvarez have taken hold in our community.
With these exceptional contracts, the new hires are showing they are not confident that Mayor Gimenez will survive his brief period of government leadership, and his deputy mayors are not confident that the county commission will approve fundamental reforms. Not a strong vote of confidence.
Are there no important community leaders that are prepared to volunteer to help redirect county government in Miami-Dade–apparently not.
Mayor Gimenez’s decision to hire a cadre of high priced managers is a calculated test of our taxpayers’ patience that he will really make the changes he promised during the campaign.
We will see.
