The Recall of Commissioner Lynda Bell:
Before proceeding with the recall of County Commissioner Lynda Bell, the Miami Economic Sustainability Alliance (MESA) will wait to see that the Miami-Dade Public Library and fire rescue services are not cut when the County Commission adopts the final budget on September 19, 2013. “This budget process has been a disaster, and it is hard to believe what they tell us,” said Deborah Dion, President of MESA.
“We are immensely satisfied that a majority of the County Commission, without Lynda Bell, were willing to send a second tax notice to correct the problems created by Mayor Gimenez. Rather than spend $700,000 to correct the millage, as if by magic, the Mayor pulled millions of dollars out of his hat to balance the budget without cutting any services. Our participation in the recall effort is all about protecting basic services to the community,” said Fred Frost, Vice President of MESA.
We are waiting to learn the final results of the second budget hearing before we consider re-filing the recall petition.
Why don't you recall her for voting to lift a 30 year deed restriction, or for other annoying stuff she has done like trying to throw DERM under the bus (Moss quote) or reviving the 8 1/2 square mile mess or for refurbishing a new office for over $100,000 that she didn't need.
