This Resolution is on the Agenda today. I am wondering why the county has to waive competitive bidding AGAIN. Where is Bovo? This he is good at, trying to stop no bid contracts.
They also don't give people a chance to get work at the county, it is a hotbed of nepotism -- i.e. Dennis Moss's wife works for the county, as did Glazer Moon's brother, and Natacha Seijas's daughter. So many more....name a few you know of. So many wives and husbands work at the county. The Miami Herald should do a story nepotism at the county and no bid contracts. We could save a ton of money.
