Seems Like No Leadership, Just Big Spenders

The city of Coral Gable is replicating a model that we have seen before. These are the elected officials, politicians starting their next campaign, indifferent voters giving birth to indifferent politicians who have pharaonic dreams about big money and big projects. They see the future of the city as glamorous spending on capital projects to which they may attach their names, like empty museums of the all-so-brief history of the city. Renaissance of what–I thought we had a great quality of life already.
Backward budgeting–get the money first and then spend it all on who-knows-what, pitting the citizen groups against each other to see who gets the most.
