“Quality of Life” in Coral Gables and the Budget
September 13, 2010 Leave a comment
I am impressed by the number of Coral Gables politicians, commissioners and the mayor who use the expression “quality of life” as something to be protected or that is facing impending loss. Certainly, we have heard the mayor and other commissions use the expression, and now we have at least one candidate, Brad Rosenblatt who has done the same.
Brad Rosenblatt, president of the Coral Gables Business Improvement District and a commission candidate, said he hopes city leaders forge a fair compromise on the budget.
“We are living through extraordinarily difficult economic times and I want to be sure that the city does everything possible to cut expenses without reducing our quality of life,” he said.
I conclude that “quality of life” might be a metaphor for raising the tax millage rate and revenues in these hard times.
