City commission vote in best interest of the people?

African square park 

Check out this Miami New Times article on the City of Miami Commission's vote to use vacant land on 61st street and NW 14th avenue for residential units in rejection of the planning board's recommendation of expansion of African Square Park: New Miami City Commission Fails First Green Test.

This vote is a perfect example of why that district needs effective representation and not someone beholden to developers.

In a city where there are already far too many vacant residential units, building more is questionable at best. District 5 residents need to be vigilant and express their opinion about their area or they will awake one day to find it's no longer theirs.

Development should also be a question asked of the latest crop of candidates seeking the District 5 seat on the City Commission.
