On June 15th, Broward County Commissioners will determine whether to put the countywide elected mayor item on the ballot. An elected Mayor would give the county consistency in its representation for diplomatic visits, working with the governor’s office, lobbying for the airport, seaport, and representation in Tallahassee. Miami-Dade County does much better because they have a consistent 4-year Mayor who’s developing relationships that moves their issues forward. Bottom line: It’s time for our 2-million residents to speak and stop muting their voices. It’s time to put this item on the ballot!
