I have been heavily involved in efforts to control the rise in property taxes.  I appeared on ABC TV News Nightline, at the invitation of Marco Rubio.

With the help of State Representative Carlos Lopez Cantera--for whom I served in a paid campaign capacity--I apparently lucked into helping negotiate the final draft of Florida's Constitutional Amendment One, seeking to lower property taxes, which was approved by Florida's voters in 2008.  I helped negotiate the addition of a 10% annual cap on rises in commercial property taxes.  

I have a pending Complaint with the Miami-Dade County Inspector General's Office alleging illegal procedures by the County Property Appraiser's Office's for assessing commercial properties' taxable value.

I have also been involved, thanks to former Governor Charlie Crist, in addressing the issue of high hurricane insurance costs. 

Here is a photo of me with the candidate I supported for Miami-Dade County Property Appraiser in 2008, Jim Shedd.

 

Here is a photo of me with Norman Braman's attorney, Stanley Krieger.
