Miami-Dade County Mayor, Carlos Alvarez & Miami-Dade County Commissioner, Natasha Seijas voted out!!!

When a politician is elected to office, he or she is considered a public servant to their constituents, regardless of their title. While working with some many other agencies and administrations during the course of your position, it is easy to get power hungry along the way.

The public servant must always be cognizance of who put you in that position and what your ultimate purpose is for being there; and that is to carry out the will of the people and abide by all by-laws.

We are blessed to live in a democratic and not a dictatorship society. When a public servant consistently displays behavior of a dictator, then he or she is no longer carrying out the will of the people, but is now operating from a personal agenda standpoint.

No man is an island, and no man can lead a country or county based on his agenda along!

Miami-Dade County grew up today and realized that We, the people, all the people are in control of our destiny, and if one or all of our politicians refuse to do what they know is right for their constituents, then they, can and should, regardless of their nationality, be voted out.That’s real people power and it goes to show you, that there is power in numbers.

Let this be the end of automatic entitlement because of your last name or the number of years, you have been in office. No man or woman should get so familiar that they feel they own the position to which they were elected or hired to serve.

There should always be a system of checks and balances, to keep the various administrations and their directors on the straight and narrow.

Let this be a beginning! With a $3 billion dollar shortfall looming over the State of Florida, every department, city, county, state and federal should be examined and streamlined to get the maximum results, while working with minimal employees.

Unfortunately or fortunately, there is tremendous waste in almost every area of our local government. This should and must be the year, whereby all government agencies clean up their acts and get out of the red and into the black in terms of fiscal accountability.

The dollars are there, I’ve seen them, after working over 30 years in the system, but they are misappropriated on almost every level. Miami-Dade County can do better and must do better in these coming days, months and years.

Today, Miami-Dade put itself on the map in a major way and I’m Proud!
Yes! We Can… and Yes! We did.
