This is how I feel about the Jackson Bond you all approved. By Geniusofdespair

Letter to the Miami Herald:

Can’t trust Miami-Dade commissioners

The passage of the Jackson Health System bond issue was a sad day for Miami-Dade taxpayers. Anyone concerned about the Miami-Dade Commission’s oversight of these funds need only recall voter approval of the sales-tax increase to be used for improvements to public transportation.

Commissioners emasculated the oversight committee so that they could gain control of the money. They have proven time and again their inability to properly manage and spend the money that taxpayers have entrusted to them. Here we go again!

Al Heltman, Kendall

Thank you Al - couldn't have said it better.

I voted no in this and any bond issues us piddly voters are allowed to vote on. The most egregious of the bonds though are the water & sewer funding. We didn't vote on those and the money pit is already bleeding over to the special interest pockets/corporate welfare/lobbyists instead of fixing our decrepit water/sewer problems.

Note to renters who think you will not pay for this bond. Your rent will go up.
Complain about property taxes going up. Yet you are hood winked every time by voting for bonds which are attached to property taxes this includes renters and lease holders. Stop voting for BONDS!

I voted NO and will continue to do so on any bond issue until the day that we have leaders which we can trust. I guess that will be a long time, if ever.
