Beware if they tie museums to a tax increase for libraries. For example, the two museums should never have moved into Bicentennial Park to begin with. As long as we have a budget shortfall, the museum benefactors should pony up as THEY PROMISED at numerous meetings. I will not vote for museums getting more tax/bond money when they had perfectly good spaces before AND THEY ALREADY GOT BOND MONEY. We gave them free space (stupid idea), now they want us to support them too? Libraries will go down if the tax increase is tied to museums and other cultural venues. A straw vote is good for nothing unless it is written right.
The port debt is past the $1 Billion mark if the $225 Million Bond offering is approved. Water and Sewer needs $2.6 Billion or thereabouts of fixing. What are we doing in Miami-Dade County? We let everything go to pot and the county gives to special interests, like the Miami Heat and Ron Book's charity, that is perfectly able to raise its own money with Ron Book at the helm.
