Miami-Dade Challenge to the Taxpayers

Taxpayers have been challenged by the City Commission and (the strong?) Mayor of Miami-Dade County with taxes being raised in the face of community angst.  The indifference of the county authorities to the financial situation of the large community, in favor of protecting employee, union and district interests (much like that of other local communities) is hard to fathom.  It certainly evidences the failed structure of community representation and governance, when a few districts can punish a whole county of taxpayers.

It is very likely that a recall will be pursued by the community, and might succeed.  We’ll see.
