I did this picture in conjunction with a blog about the transit tax that turned into a boondoggle for taxpayers with "$900 million collected for new projects spent on bloated staff, outsized salaries and maintenance of existing operations." according to the Miami Herald. Carlos Gimenez sponsored legislation to end the black-hole where our tax dollars were going. Today he needs your vote for fiscal responsibility to thrive in this County!
I will be reporting from various locations today. I can only post photos when I get home.
8:00 am Surfside Town Hall - quiet, no campaign signs.
9:55 Library on Collins and 75 Street in North Beach - one lady with Robaina signs, no voters.
10:30 Eden Isles in North Miami - 12 people had voted.
10:40 Fire-station 5 Hialeah - Slow. Robaina just voted.
12:00 Carlos and Lourdes Gimenez vote in Coral Gables. Also, pictured with some young voters.
I am at Jose Marti park can't find the polling place. Actually it was in the gym not the park. They said about 100 people had voted. It seems a waste of money to have 5 poll workers and a guard for a couple of hundred votes. One Robaina campaign worker is here.
2:45 North Miami - 54 people have voted at Highland Village.
3:00 I am now at Brickell UTD Center. Much more vibrant. A lot of Gimenez supporters one Robaina. They said about 150 voted here today. Even ran into an EoM reader - Jeff - with a Robaina shirt on. Go figure.
About 3:00, 200 people voted in Country Walk.
4:00 North Miami Gwen Margolis center, again light voting.
Absentee ballots and early voting have made election day a snooze. I hate it.
