Letters from the Issue of August 9, 2007

"I know the politicians don't particularly care that we're all leaving"

Over the past 15 years, I've fixed up eight properties in once-dodgy neighborhoods on the Beach and in the Biscayne corridor. The money I've made, intended to be a retirement fund, is all gone now to taxes and insurance. I know that the politicians don't care about me and that they don't appreciate what I and many others like me have done to improve Miami. And I don't think they particularly care that we're all leaving, either.

I end up feeling that the City of Miami isn't my ally, it's my adversary. And when I read about the phony tax reduction proposal, I feel disgusted and ripped off.
