ISSUES: Xavier Suarez on County Transportation – “No Leadership”

Late Thursday night, Miami-Dade County Commissioners gave an initial approval to Mayor Carlos Gimenez’s $6.8 billion budget — but not without criticism from environmentalists concerned that climate change is not a priority. Another critic of Gimenez and his budget, County Commissioner Xavier Suarez, launched television ads earlier this week criticizing the mayor for transferring desperately needed transportation funds to finance other projects. Is all the blame on Mayor Gimenez? What is the commission’s responsibility?
