The list is endless:

The virtual disappearance of the half-cent transit tax

Massive cost overruns at the airport

The Performing Arts Center, over budget and under-used

Housing for the poor: funds go to a mansion for the rich

$5M “Green Fund” goes to pay for big SUVs

Public hospital fails to bill for services, $200M in the red



How does this happen? And why does it KEEP ON happening?

In the real world, a business that can’t bill for its services, can’t keep a budget and can’t make a deadline goes out of business. But at the county, red ink is the norm. Incompetence is rewarded with high salaries. Albert heard in a personal conversation with Jackson Health CEO Eneida Roldan that the hospital lost $80-100 million moving out of an old billing system: the existing unpaid accounts were not imported to the new system! Until Dr. Roldan arrived, this was considered “the cost of doing business.”


What should the county do about its spending addiction?


  1. BulletFire the people actually responsible for the problem.

  2. BulletRun all departments like businesses, with incentives for good performance and penalties for failure.

  3. BulletFoster smaller government, and let cities and new villages do the jobs that the county has struggled with.

  4. BulletInvest in smart ways that build a resilient small business economy—instead of in boondoggles.




Represent the WHOLE county—not just one faction.
In Miami-Dade, ethnic politics twists everything. It’s time for leadership who can address ALL the people.onecounty.html
Whose Agenda is it anyway?

Don’t squander our money!
From the public hospital to the transit tax, from the airport to the performing arts center, public funds are misspent.
