NMB needs a new mayor

(MIAMI HERALD)    When Megan, a 16 year old North Miami Beach resident, saw Mayor Myron Rosner’s faux “Happy Holidays” bus benches, the first thing she wondered was why were these so-called holiday wishes not from the mayor and council of her city. Her second thought was “Aha! Because they’re campaign signs.”

Gee, that was a no-brainer! Sure as shooting, at the very start of the official campaign sign season those bus benches magically transformed into official campaign signs. Megan also asked me why our mayor was such a negative role model for the youth of North Miami Beach. Good question. Sadly, I had no answer for her. Yes, Myron’s motives are transparent, but that’s not the transparency we’ve been asking for.

Fortunately, on May 3 we will have a choice. Myron is being challenged by an outstanding candidate by the name of George Vallejo, who I have personally known for over six years. George is one of the most honorable individuals you will ever meet. One of the things that George would like to see implemented in NMB is 100 percent financial transparency. He wants every single check written by the city to be posted on the website for all to see. Can you imagine that? No more begging the city clerk for copies of checks and having our requests stalled by the mayor. No more surprises about employee raises after the fact! No more finding out in the newspaper that $2.2 million worth of manholes have gone missing. Do you want four more years of Chicago-style politics, or do you want a true leader? If you’ve been paying attention, you already know the answer.
