Coral Gables: The Amazing Missing Taxpayers
November 4, 2010 Leave a comment
Where are the electorate and taxpayers in Coral Gables.
For national and state issues the electorate is fiscally and socially conservative.
But for local issues there is a preference to let things take their course, except for very big issues like banning leaf blowers. The city commission has approved additional taxes year after year with little actual community protesting. The commission has favored labor unions and workers benefits over taxpayers, it has pushed its favorate projects (the Coral Gables Museum is a case in point), it has consistently ignored its fiduciary responsibility to oversee the administration of city leases, ad infinitum, and it has favored land owners, developers and the “too big to fail” UM.
In short, where are the amazing disappearing voters and taxpayers.
