Investiture In Coral Gables: By Invitation Only
April 20, 2011 1 Comment
As a failed observer of the investiture of the new mayor and commissioners, clearly due to the size of the commission room, there was no space for but a few others than the friends of the mayors and commissioners. People crowded into the room and it seemed they clearly exceeded the fire marshall limits (limits that Mr. Slesnick always used to clear the room).
Why not use the museum space for these sorts of public events to get more direct community participation or even an auditorium at UM.
This de facto invitation-only event is evidence that community participation is the last thing that our commissioners and recent past mayor think about. Hoping this anti-participation culture will change in the coming weeks and months.
