A new slogan for Miami-Dade County: input needed … by gimleteye

We are humbled by the creativity and energy of readers who took the time to delight in conceiving a new slogan for Miami-Dade County. This could turn out to be our most popular post of the year, won last year by Ana Sol Alliegro. But you will have to kick it up a notch.

We need you to edit your slogans to five words maximum.

Yes it is difficult, but nothing difficult is easily won. So. "Yes I have no Bananas, I have no Bananas today" is perfectly understandable but is too lengthy. How about, "Miami Dade County: The No-Slip Banana Republic".

OK. Readers, get back to your inventions!

Time for a slogan change,  one that is true perhaps.
Miami Today suggests it is time for the county commission to revisit the slogan and tag line, "Delivering Excellence Every Day".  What else could Miami-Dade, say?

Miami-Dade … "Your flight capital, capitol"
Miami-Dade …  "Pure Magic"
Miami-Dade … "Home of the Perez Art Museum"

What's your version of the best slogan for Miami-Dade?

1) The best County Commission money can buy.

2) Build a Stadium, we'll give the bill to the taxpayers - you keep the profits.

3) Jobs are promised which never appear.

4) Sprawl, no problem. We have a CDD App for that.

It's not what you know, it's who you know.

Pig earring capitol of the world.

Delivering lobbyist access, corruption and fraud every day.

Pretending to be something we are not, every day.

Ignoring the needs of the masses for the connected few.

Home of kicking the can down the road.

It's not me it's you.

Where hindsight is 20/400.

I think we should have a statue of Carmen Miranda in front of city hall. It would be very festive.

The tag line should inspire us all:

We've got an awful problem on our hands. (from Ricky Ricardo, I made it plural)

So far I like:

Miami Dade County: Delivering lobbyist access, corruption and fraud every day.

But the rest are really good.
How about:
Miami Dade County "Keeping the electorate stupid." Or,

Miami Dade County "Bribing its citizens to vote for incompetents."

Miami Dade County "No library worthy of funding"

What it could NOT be:

"Government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the Earth."
