Comments on: The lessons of Airport City have little to do with Airport City http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/02/26/lessons-airport-city-little-airport-city/ The Newspaper for the Future of Miami Fri, 21 Nov 2014 14:24:04 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.0.1 By: DC Copeland http://www.miamitodaynews.com/2014/02/26/lessons-airport-city-little-airport-city/#comment-1548 Thu, 27 Feb 2014 17:32:12 +0000 http://www.miamitodaynews.com/?p=20843#comment-1548 I’ve lived here long enough to come to the conclusion Odebrecht gets the job done on massive engineering and construction contracts and I suspect one reason they keep getting those public contracts is due to their ability to underbid and finish on time and within budget. The fact that Odebrecht has a financial stake in Airport City would lead me to conclude the company will do all it can to finish the project ASAP so that it can start making money off of it. This ethnic grandstanding by our commissioners is embarrassing. I think the only way to make that go away is for citizens to petition for an election that will re-write the rules that makes it illegal for elected officials to whip out the “race card” on any voting matter. Of course, that same petition should take these kinds of matters out of their hands and, as you suggested, leave it in the hands of county managers.

Also liked the article on Commissioners salaries. Miami is growing in every area except political leadership.
Keep up the good work.

Why are your moving from ethnic to religious politics which is often even worse? Why not just state the obvious, we all evolved from apes in east africa.
