If this is luke's idea of hiring dade county or fla residents, I guess a lot of people will be out of a job. because 1st of all pac-jam was located on 12 ave and N. W. 54th st.. and what do the other questions have to do with one's qualifacation's in order to get and preform their job duties...so has he dismissed people who have certification's, education's or degree's in this work feild ? nice going luke...

The PAC JAM was located on NW 54 Street and NW 12 Avenue. Where did you get your answers? But them Luther claims there are no sidewalks on NW 15th Avenue. HA HA!! Apparently Luther was never on 15th Avenue, certainly not lately. There have been sidewalks on NW 15 Avenue since the Miami Times (the black newspaper) was located there back in the 1960's. But this is your newspaper's candidate. Neither of you knows what the hell you're talking about. The black man in this race with credibility and experience in County government is ROOSEVELT BRADLEY, and that is who we're voting for!!!!!!!!!!!!!

lol... it's pretty funny that he put NW 15th ave, but calling him out on that as if he doesn't know what he's talking about is actually hilarious.

FYI, the Pac Jam was owned by a guy that went by the name of Luke Skywalker. Otherwise known as Luther Campbell. Googling something to see the old address doesn't make you know what you're talking about ;) You can find another New Times article where Luke specifically says that Pac Jam was on 54th and 12th, so it's not like he lost his mind and doesn't remember. Obviously some kind of typo on this page.

As far as sidewalks on 15th ave... yeah there are sidewalks directly on 15th avenue... but there are none on a great number of the streets that intersect with 15th avenue, which is clearly what he meant in that other article.

I'm really no fan of Luke for mayor myself, I just found this comment full of win ;)

Ana, it is going to SUCK for county tax payers. Also, I have seen the design of that new piece of crap stadium. It is more of an eyesore than Ileana Ros-Lehtinen's fat ass.

He is pissed because it is being build in LITTLE HAVANA and he like all other Miami blacks ( a minority minority here) wanted it build in Overtown or Liberty City.SORRY Bro.You lost.He,he,he...Every cuban is buying a ticket and the place will be overflowing and booming.Anyway LandShark Stadium is in Carol City or close enough.LOL.LOL.LOL....

You are an idiot and apparently a racist. No surprise here that your name is "cubanogm". This new stadium is going to SUCK because it is costing the county tax payers millions. Oh, wait, you probably aren't a tax payer yourself so you probably have no clue what paying taxes is like. If you idiots wanted a baseball stadium so much it should have been built in downtown Miami right next to the AAA. But instead, it is in North Havana - a terrible location because now the english speaking fans won't be able to buy a ticket. SunLife stadium is in Miami Gardens and the location where the Marlins play at now is more convenient for both Dade and Broward residents. Pull your head out of your ass and start thinking for once. I swear, you rafters seem to amaze me with how ignorant you people really are and how little you use that short noodle in your thick skulls. Piss off.
