Mayor Suarez: Miami ‘On The Cusp Of Getting Something Big’

Mayor Francis Suarez said last week he thinks something Miami is about to get big news.

“We’d love to have Twitter here,” Suarez said, according to Bloomberg. The news service said the comments were an invitation for the company to move here.

“I think we’re on the cusp of getting something big, like, you know, Jeff Bezos moving here or Elon Musk moving here,” Suarez added.

Suarez also said there has been talk of Apple and Cisco adding office space in Miami.

The informal invitation to Twitter by Suarez came shortly after the news that Elon Musk was purchasing the company.

Florida’s CFO Jimmy Patronis has been campaigning for Twitter to move its headquarters to Florida, including sending a letter to Elon Musk.

However, Governor Ron DeSantis is not a fan of the idea, saying that Twitter moving its HQ here would “drive up the cost of living for everybody else.”

Since when is DeSantis concerned about driving up the cost of living? Political contradiction at its finest…

Well, he is already successful in restricting abortions, and when the Supreme Court strikes Roe vs Wade in the coming weeks he will ban them. “Don’t say gay” it’s the law of the land. Disney has been punished for just saying what they think of his dacronian laws. Meantime we have an insurance, and housings cost in Florida that they don’t address at all!

No way does the Education bill have “ don’t say gay “ anywhere in the fine print. You’re one of the people who’s following a false narrative by leftists.

flgov.com Is there anything else that needs to be said? Read the bill and tell me if it says “ don’t say gay “. It’s supposed to let parents determine the type of education their children will receive so they won’t be indoctrinated into hearing CRT propaganda.

The law says “Classroom instruction by school personnel or third parties on sexual orientation or gender identity may not occur in kindergarten through grade 3 or in a manner that is not age-appropriate or developmentally appropriate for students in accordance with state standards.”
Heterosexuality is a sexual orientation and many students have a mother and father who identify with that. “Boy” and “girl” are gender expressions as are pronouns he and she.
So as long as teachers avoid those words in all discussions, reading material, art work, etc they will be complying with the law.

The right, always so afraid at how somebody will turn out. That is, if they don’t turn out or become something to their liking (meaning the way they look at things and think). That’s just like life taking place in a woman’s womb. A woman can get thrown in jail if, according to the righties standard, the fetus was kept from being born an alive human being (they’ll worry about their sexuality later). But if the baby comes out still-born, then it’s, “well, it was GAWD’s will.” Really?.. so you righties are gawds when it comes to when you wanna throw a woman in jail over how she want to perceive with her own body when it comes to her birthing rights and become like “Cave Men” scratching your heads and saying, “well, gawd is in control” when it comes to the woman getting pregnant and if the baby is gonna come out alive.

Well you righties, in that case, tell me this.. why didn’t GAWD make Hitler a “Still-born baby?”

The answer to the first question seems to be all of his life.
The guy is very impressive. His mother was a nurse, and his father installed Nielson TV rating boxes. DeSantis went to the Little League World Series as a kid, played baseball at Yale, where he graduated magna cum laude.
While attending Yale he worked a variety of jobs, including an electrician’s assistant and a baseball camp coach.
After spending a year as a history teacher at the Darlington School, he attended Harvard Law School, graduating in 2005 with a Juris Doctor cum laude. Then he served in the Navy.

He track record on policy has a thread, that is protecting Americans freedom, liberty, and not raising taxes on the American public by the Federal Government.

Good for him. I am sure that with his very impressive list of successes, there will be a tendency for some bitter under achievers to be jealous. Bitter under achievers rarely invest a moment to seek out the truth, so I’ve done a little bit for them here.

The best way to silence him for good is by getting out there and Vote and by encouraging everyone we know to register to vote in FL this November. You will be surprised of how many young people don’t even know how to do so.

Nothing major if its a tech coming opening a small office and importing their currenty employees. If its a major employer that is expanding and hiring locally that would be great for the city. But the city really needs to figure out the housing situation here if they expect to keep things going in the right direction

“The City” needs to figure out the housing situation?

I’ll bet anyone who wants to take the action, that housing exists in Miami today, and will exist in Miami in 10 years from now.

“The City” does not NEED to figure out the housing situation. It would be very nice, and I WANT the P&Z to be less restrictive on building supply, but need and want are different things.

Many INDIVIDUALS have figured out the housing situation. Just about anyone who owned real estate in Miami 5 years ago, is doing just fine.

“How exactly would any of this benefit the typical Miami resident?”
The announcement has not been made yet, so that answer is not clear.

I know Suarez, he cares a great deal about Miami, and the guy invests a lot of time (weekends included) as a champion of Miami and especially education for it’s citizens so that they can fill job opening that will create generational wealth.

No doubt, there is still a large number of Miamians who don’t have average reading comprehension skills and will always have a hard time catching up, but those problems are no fault of the Mayor.

Because people from Miami don’t want improvement. They don’t want a better life. They just want to do donuts on Biscayne and go to Space.

Saurez actually wants to actually improve the city and bring in culture, investment, industry, and education.
