Oh Dear, It’s Election Time in South Miami Again!

Commissioner Bob Welsh

Our ever-colorful, passionate, and ‘fit’ Commissioner Bob Welsh (aka Bicycle Bob) was peddling around my South Miami neighborhood (behind Dante Fascell Park) on Saturday delivering  a plug for re-election of Commissioner Walter Harris, an unofficial dog park survey, and more  minutia about ex-Police Chief Orlando Martinez (ousted in August, 2013).

As we get closer to election time in South Miami I will comment more on the Peyton Place elections in the City of Pleasant Living  (it gets sooo ‘up close and personal’ amongst these candidates).  In a nutshell current Mayor Philip Stoddard will be running for re-election against Mayoral Candidate Valerie Ann Newman; Commissioner Walter Harris is hoping to be re-elected, and will be running against Rodney Williams and Horace Feliu.  Stay tuned as we approach Municipal Elections on February 11th.

The good news delivered by Bicycle Bob is there is a dog park on the radar!  Our City is so dog friendly; it would be delightful to have a doggy park.  My dogs LOVE going to Kennedy Park in Coconut Grove to play with other pets.  I will vote YES, YES, YES to a pet playground in the proposed site over near the South Miami Elk’s Lodge, along the canal.  It would be a wonderful addition to the neighborhood.
