Dennis Moss Picks Committee Chairs
Moss has reduced the number of committees from eight to seven. He put Katy Sorenson and Carlos Gimenez, two impartial, super smart commissioners, in charge of overseeing the county's budget, growth and day-to-day operations. Commissioner Sally Heyman, a former state legislator, to chair the Health, Public Safety and Intergovernmental Committee. Moss allies Audrey Edmonson and Barbara Jordan, the two black female commissioners, will head up the committees overseeing affordable housing, community development, mass transit and county roads. Can't day I am too thrilled with Dorrin Rolle being installed as the overlord of the county airports and the Port of Miami.
Left out in the cold: Natacha Seijas. The commissioner from Miami Lakes has chaired a committee ever since the system was reintroduced by the county commission in 2002. Not this time around. Although she is vice-chairwoman for the Government Operations committee.
