Strength in Unity The recent victory of Daniella Levine Cava for District 8 County Commissioner was an excellent example of what we can accomplish if we are united. PBA members did not stay home – they voted. There were no excuses given for why they couldn’t vote – they voted – either by mail, or early voting, or on vote day itself. And, what a difference a day makes!

Wow, what a difference an Election makes! Daniella Levine Cava did what a lot of people thought was unthinkable by beating Miami-Dade County Commissioner Lynda Bell, an incumbent, a feat which has only been done two other times in the last 20 years. A day later, the Mayor made the announcement that money was found and he was dropping his demands for the snap backs and union concessions that he presented and recommended to the commissioners to approve. Then, just two days after the election, he makes another discovery, he found more money and like magic, he said there would be NO LAYOFFS to public safety. Yes, elections do have consequences.

Welcome back. Well, football season is in full swing and our couches are getting a workout. Let’s remember to do a little less 12 oz. curses and a little more walking or running so we can fully enjoy our retirement that we worked so hard to obtain.
