Miami City Manager Pete Hernandez does the right thing

Miami City Manager Pete Hernandez fires Miami Housing Director Barbara Gomez and nixes her million dollar pension. He also gave the heave ho to Mary Conway, Chief of Operations, for allowing a group of nearly a dozen employees-- who described themselves as "The Firm"-- to run their own business while at work-- to the point that the work they did for the city was shoddy and delayed leading to cost overruns.

Way to go, Pete for doing the right thing. It's so rare to see someone do that on the city and county level. It gives us all hope that things might actually be turning around down here what with the recent firings of the Northwesten High principal and the entire football staff.

It is a sad day when we have to beatify a civil servant for doing his job! Nonetheless, I agree with you that the City manager is to be commended for firing Barbara Gomez. She was a complete zero!

Hey, we may be shallow egotists but we know our limitations. Beatification is something only the Pope can do.
