I like this article because I am quoted, they go over Lynda's first year in office:
• In May, Bell moved into a spacious new district office in Palmetto Bay that will cost taxpayers $170,000 over the next four years. She also spent $28,100 on office furnishings. According to Eye On Miami blogger Genius of Despair, who first reported about the commish's new digs, Bell could have remained in her predecessor's old office at the South Dade Government Center at no cost to taxpayers.
• She recently launched her first salvo to get rid of the county's department that protects the local environment. On July 7, she persuaded her county commission colleagues to form a task force to review how the Department of Environmental Resources Management designates sensitive wetlands, a move that has drawn criticism from the Tropical Audubon Society.
