County Commissioner Rebeca Sosa Disappoints...There I Said It. By Geniusofdespair
I always liked our Becky, she gets things done. She is a sucker for the spectrum in her dress, she always looks dazzling on the dais but this week Rebeca Sosa disappointed me. Can she still make the righteous move or has she been co-opted by the mayor?
We need Rebeca Sosa to remove Resoultion Item 160277 and replace it with the Executive Mayor Charter Change (or if she lost her cojones she needs to release the Executive Mayor item to another Commissioner). What am I talking about?
Rebeca Sosa has in the county pipeline a Charter Change Item to allow us a vote to repeal the Strong Mayor and return to the Executive Mayor form of government. But this item is STALLED. Probably on purpose. I have been calling about it for weeks.
With 160277, that Rebeca just put on the agenda, the Commission will reach their 3 Ballot items limit allowed. We don't really need this Charter Change Ms. Becky. We need to decide about the Executive Mayor vs. the Strong Mayor instead. We have a bully form of government we did not anticipate. Stupid us - we voted in haste to put a strong mayor in power and we got a bully mayor system instead.
You might not want to fuss with the bully Mayor Carlos Gimenez even though you are a woman of action, but maybe another Commissioner will.
So I most respectfully request that you release the Executive Mayor Resolution or MOVE ON IT and get rid of that stupid Item 160277 that is not in the least important to do. Is the Mayor pulling your strings?
I still love you Becky, but come on...all us political wonks know what is going on. We just don't know WHY.
4pm ---Her office called and assured me this is going to get done, that I should not despair. I will take them at their word. I doubt that they made a call, just to lie directly to me.
