Where’s the Leadership in Coral Gables
August 18, 2010 Leave a comment
Coral Gables needs a new leadership of citizens and organizations who are ready to identify a new agenda for the city, not only for the narrow services of the city government (spending, taxes and regulation), but to lead the city in its transformation into a dynamic center of regional growth emerging from the Great Recession, attracting new businesses and activities (while sustaining our traditional businesses).
Evidently, Coral Gables is already an important business center, but its future depends on recruiting new businesses, not only protecting and sustaining what we have. The city is built on a fragile economic underpinning, too dependent on a traditional, sluggish retail trade, commercial and residential real estate sales and construction, and administrative, accounting, legal, engineering and commercial services, most of which will grow slowly in the years ahead.
Who will come forward with ideas for a better future for the city to keep it growing and prospering.
We are still will looking for that leadership.
