|County Commissioner Audrey Edmonson receiving an Orchid Award from the Urban Environment League for "Dedication to downtown open space and waterfront access"|
I listened to Daniella Levine Cava speak at the Urban Environment League's Orchids and Onions affair (She was the featured speaker). I was inspired. Not just by Levine-Cava's words but by her speaking ability. She is so damn smart. I thought she was really amazing. It was not a stump speech, finally, it was one from the heart. She said: “Miami is an iconic place, and let's make sure we continue to lift up not only its amazing diversity of culture and design, but also its natural beauty, making it accessible to residents as well as visitors."
I really think we will be seeing changes at the County Commission.
County Commissioner Audrey Edmonson, who received an award seems to 'get it' now. Maybe other County Commissioners will too. By December things will start changing. Even the Mayor has softened that disrespectful "I know it all attitude". Is there hope for better government at the County without a mean spirited commissioner leading the pack. I am hoping for a more moderate efficient body, or am I being overly optimistic?
