On April 11, 2011, I was sworn in for a second term on the Miami Springs City Council. I was pleased that our neighbor, a Miami-Dade County Circuit Court Judge, The Honorable Judy Rubenstein, agreed to swear me in for a second time. Judge Rubenstein is a well-respected and hard working member of our judiciary. In these trying times, our Judges do not get enough respect, support, or pay. The true public servants are our Judges. Please thank her for her service next time you see her around town.
