Dear Fellow Citizens of North Miami Beach,
Our City, like many of its residents, is facing tremendous financial challenges. Years of wasteful spending have left the city burdened with massive debts, high property taxes and a crumbling infrastructure.
In these hard times, most of us have been forced to do more, with less, both at work and at home. You probably are stretching the dollar further than you have in the past and you expect your city government to live by the same rules.
There are some who believe all we need to do is just take a little more money out of your pocket. I disagree. The problem is not a lack of money, but a lack of proper judgment on how to spend the city's money.
As YOUR new Mayor, I will change all of this. I understand exactly what caused this mess and I have the plan to get us out of it...without sacrificing essential services or increasing your taxes.
The time has come to stop making excuses and make the changes so desperately needed. Even in these financial hard times we can do better.
Please help me as we work together to turn OUR city around.
