Miami Boat Show bullying its exhibitors
The National Marine Manufacturers Assn. lead by Thom Dammrich is asking boat show exhibitors to support the event by telling lawmakers in the area that the show is "crucial" to the industry. He is fear mongering, lying and acting very Trump-like in order to get his way.
As you know, Key Biscayne residents are against the project for two reasons - harm to the environment and mass traffic on the causeway during that weekend, which is planned for February.
Last week, the county commission delayed the approval of permits for the boat show on Virginia Key. The "in water" portion is supposed to move forward but is on hold. Just the sound of that "in water portion," is scary. Does it involve killing more mangroves and paving over more land?
I think with the recent District 2 election results, it might behoove the lawmakers to side with the residents and ecologists if they want to stay in office. Residents are not going to allow big money to dictate our way of life anymore. And all local "lawmakers" should keep that in mind.
