Manny Diaz Ain't Green
The US Conference of Mayors conference kicks off tomorrow in Miami, and Manny Diaz is stepping out. The Miami mayor -- the conference's leader this year -- will talk about green initiatives. Barack Obama and the Billmeister will follow him.
But Manny, whom Vanity Fair mag named one of the nation's most environmentally conscious mayors a couple years ago, presides over a city with the least park space of any big city in the nation -- 3.1 acres per 1000 residents. And, oh yeah, the Magic City has thousands of condos coming on line -- but the most screwed up mass transit system in the nation -- as the Miami Herald's Larry Lebowitz recently proved.
So somebody needs to call Manny out. C'mon protestors, speak up. You'll be heard.
