The taxi cab campaign contributors have shoveled tons of money at incumbent county commissioners. The appearance of Uber and Lyft on Miami streets with consumers who would otherwise be taking taxicabs has triggered a pay-day backlash at county hall.
It is quite a sight to watch Miami-Dade county commissioners fall over themselves to justify denial of service to consumers. Call your county commissioner: tell him or her to get out of the way of Uber and Lyft. Voters should remember those incumbents when it comes time to vote.
