Yesterday Daniel Shoer Roth wrote about the Stoddard victory in "Dade Excels at Squandering Taxpayers' Money":
So when Phillip Stoddard, a biologist and unknown political neophyte, ran for mayor against the longtime incumbent -- who was an FPL defender -- voters broke free and elected the newcomer last week.
About time for voters in the rest of the county to free themselves from the same old pols conducting business as usual.
And even Jackie Bueno Sousa made sense yesterday, sort of, while advocating for term limits, she said:
That desire for change is seeping into the local level as well. Note the solid victory in South Miami of biologist Philip Stoddard over incumbent Mayor Horace Feliu.
I hope the South Miami victory is a sign of bigger changes to come.
