To the 10,001 Miamians and Pets’ Trust Supporters:

The regularly scheduled July 30th meeting for the Board of County Commissioners has been canceled!  Mayor Gimenez sent out a memo seeking seven votes to cancel that meeting, which would have been the last chance to discuss the millage issue.  He did get seven commissioners to agree with him.

Our votes have been dismissed and our voices have been silenced.

I would like you to share this far and wide, and say it over and over…

“Our votes have been dismissed and our voices have been silenced

The “elected” officials that have made this decision … work for us.  They have forgotten.  Please continue to call and REMIND THEM that they work for you.  They work for me.  They work for US.

Commissioner Barreiro, Sosa, Suarez, Bell, Bovo, Zapata and Souto took our voices away and signed the Mayor’s memo.

We won the vote overwhelmingly and they said…  “not enough”.

Then, we spoke about it.  They didn’t listen.

We wanted one more chance.

The door was closed.

That is all I am going to say at the moment.  I want you to think about what has happened.

Think about what America is supposed to be.

  1. Yes, definitely a sad day silencing the voices of democracy, not once but twice. I was there and heard the voices of the pets fall on deaf ears of the Commisioners and the Mayor. Don’t think for one moment that both incidents weren’t orchestrated. I am an animal owner and we too and many members of the firefighters support your cause and agree that the Mayor and the 7-8 members of the Commision have stifled democracy. I guess they forgot who and why they wer elected…
