Rosenblatt Fails on the Merit of His Political Program
March 24, 2011 Leave a comment
Robsenblatt’s recent TV add presents the Biltmore, Miracle Mile and “keep taxes low,” as his political program. On this basis he is missing the boat.
The big problem is that taxes are NOT now low–they need to be held constant or reduced.
The big problem is that the city of Coral Gables has been incompetent in the management of the Biltmore. Maybe the Biltmore should be returned to the federal government or transferred to Miami-Dade county (I know this is a radical thought).
Of course, he favors government support for Miracle Mile. The city can’t afford spending on a stagnant commercial district on the scale that has been proposed–fine, fix it up, but not to the tune of $16 million (at least).
