GOOD PLAN DANIELLA! - Geniusofdespair
Miami-Dade residents are ready to see aggressive steps taken to eliminate corruption, and the perception of corruption, from County Hall.
Today I'm proud to share my three-point plan to tackle the ongoing perception and problem of corruption. Through this plan, I will work to restore the trust and confidence of residents in their county government.
Prohibit donations from companies that do business with the County - Modeled after major cities including Miami Beach, Palmetto Bay and Aventura, Miami-Dade needs to end the practice of commissioners accepting donations from companies doing business with the county.
Require County Commissioners and Commission candidates to file Statements of Solicitations for 527s, Political Committees and Electioneering Communication Organizations (ECOs) - Modeled after the State of Florida’s solicitation requirements, Miami-Dade needs to adopt similar efforts to ensure that County Commissioners and candidates disclose with the Supervisor of Elections when they are fundraising for 527s, PCs and ECOs.
Mandatory recusal from votes that have the potential to benefit family members - It should be required that commissioners recuse themselves from any votes in which their business or that of direct family members stand to potentially gain financially. The recusal must be filed at least 24 hours prior to the scheduled vote with the Commission on Ethics.
It's time to increase public trust and remove the dark cloud of corruption that lingers above County Hall. I hope you will support me in this effort.
