With 16 of its 21 seats filled, the Miami-Dade County Charter Review Task Force can get to work. Not joking: four Miami-Dade commissioners (Carlos Gimenez, Sally Heyman, Barbara Jordan, and Javier Souto) appointed themselves to the committee. I suspect that if anything positive comes from this it will be despite their participation, not because of it. In any case, the task force is supposed to submit its final report at the end of October.

    I actually think that we need to have Gimenez and Heymen on the Review Task force to combat the lobbyists that other Commissioners have nominated (see Miguel De F-N Grandy). Gimenez has proven to be a no-nonesense guy who holds County staff to task for their incompetence, and he did actually sit on that end of the table at the City of Miami. Heymen is not one to be pushed overy by any lobbyist either, and she is a former City employee, which gives her similar perspective. Now I thought that Jordan would do a wonderful job, she was an assistant County Manager afterall, however, the Meek connection is becoming more and more concerning. I don’t know about her anymore. Souto is a washed-up, wacky, nothing-but-nonesense demagouge, who is irrelevant in all respects.
