Compromise rulings on the Carlos-O-Meter

Cut county departments from 60 to 25

"One of my top priorities is to reorganize and consolidate county departments, bringing the total number to no more that 25 – the same as the State of Florida. By eliminating unnecessary departments we can reduce the tax burden on Miami-Dade residents."

Reduce the office of mayor by 10 percent

"I will immediately reduce the Office of the Mayor, currently budgeted at $7.3 million, by 10 percent in order to fill the $730,298 gap created by (Gov. Rick Scott's) veto."

Create Seniors First Trust Fund

“I will create a Seniors First Trust Fund to assure that the elderly continue to have access to warm meals and I will extend the low-income seniors property tax rebate program of $100 for next year.”
