What Redistricting did: Everyone is running for office at the State level. It is mayhem. Some candidates are moving from district to district like musical chairs. Others are newbies -- never having held ANY office (Donald Trump style) but going for the top slot: State Senator. They are skipping everything else, like experience (i.e. Lauren Book, Andrew Korge, Jason Pizzo). I have been a political wonk and environmentalist for 20 years and I have never heard of some of the candidates running and neither have my political savvy friends. They have never been active in the community. Then there are those candidates that have run for office at multiple levels of government and lost. The State races are a complete mess. We have learned, by watching Rich Guy, Mayor Phillip Levine Govern Miami Beach - how clueless a newbie politician can be and dangerous to the environmental health of the County. And, for all your information candidates: Saying you support an action plan on climate change/sea level rise does not give you environmental creds. Phillip Levine supports this, and his action plan is pumping polluted water from Miami Beach's flooded streets into our pristine aquatic preserve -- as he bashes our most respected scientists and their studies on the water's quality.
Excuse me, I am going to barf. Really, I am heartsick about our future here in Miami Dade County. Today I am in despair.
