Carlos Gimenez gives himself and his close buddies millions of dollars but fails to give crumbs to the hard working employees, not just police, so that they can sustain.
I hope people educate themselves on this issue. before talking to my neighbors who are police officers (thank goodness we have a few in our neighborhood)I was one of those people whose attitude was why any raise. I learned that they have not had a raise of any kind for the last 6-7 years. in fact, when times were bad, the law enforcement community gave up more than any other unit to help out. Now, after they helped out, the Mayor is treating less an honorable? what a shame.
by no means am I a Trump supporter, however, he is the only candidate that supports the Military and closer to home, the police. Gimenez would be better served to take that lesson from that message.
We demand safer streets, especially since we see murders daily in this community. We demand our Police and Fire Fighters to risk their lives. We must also demand that our elected officials treat them with dignity.
Billions to the Billionaires, millions to the millionaires, love to the lobbyists, but nothing for the workers, Mr Gimenez???
I seem to remember that several independent courts had declared Gimenez to have negotiated in bad faith. is this another one?
I believe that Mayor Gimenez' inability to come to an agreement with our police, bus drivers, water and sewer employees and firefighters is a testament to his lack of leadership skills. thus, he is incapable of running the county's fiscal obligations.
Our next County Mayor will need to recruit and surround herself with a professional cadre which will complement her; not compliment her, particularly in policing. Since Gimenez seized power, he has methodically decimated the Miami Dade Police Department (MDPD) and in spite the recent addition of 100 newly graduated police officers, it will take time and decisive managerial acumen to ignite MDPD’s resurgence from Gimenez’ created quagmire. Readers must know that it generally takes 18 months for a newly graduated police officer to become somewhat proficient; if he or she makes it through the year-long probationary period
Public safety is likely county government’s most significant budget item; thus submitting a separate budget for Public Safety and another for all other County Services is the most sound practice, which Gimenez does not follow. By bifurcating the budget the county could have significant latitude in wisely requesting and allocating Public Safety dollars.
Gimenez should take some classes. Budgets 101
give me a break. just look at the county payroll and you will see that police and firefighters salaries make up the largest part and have more making greater than $100,000 per year than any other departments.
hell, Gimenez should take Humanity 101 first.
Gimenez: Forget the old negotiating stereotypes. The opposing-parties model – management. laborer– is no longer workable. Today that model is replaced by the business partners approach to negotiation. Openness and sincerity replace self-centredness and egoism.
Mistrust breeds mistrust
I am one of the officers who has been at every negotiation session with the county and PBA. the thing that always amasses me is hoe confused the county seems to always be. they seem unprepared, or maybe its their way to stall. It makes me feel like they genuinely don't care about us. They have answers to the questions asked by the PBA. I sense the frustration and I'm just a spectator, although affected by the outcome. I wonder if we would be treated differently if our name was the Miami Dolphins, or Heat, or Marlins?
The previous writer poses an interesting question, since the real heroes are our first responders
why is anyone really surprised? Carlos Gimenez has never had real negotiation skills. his track record speaks for itself. he doesn't get along with anyone but himself. he has never been a negotiator, nor a unifier. it is doubtful that he will begin anytime soon.
Didn't the PBA already win court cases where the Mayor acted illegally. It is costing us taxpayers even more money
Anonymous said... Didn't the PBA already win court cases where the Mayor acted illegally. It is costing us taxpayers even more money.Not a single Dollar was returned and he has refused to acknowledge the act was illegal. As for "US TAXPAYERS", that included county employee's.
But the soccer stadium is the priority. Don't you get it. After second thought, it might be his best idea yet. A massive congregation of illegal immigrants. When it comes to rounding them up, doesn't get any easier than that.
