As Councilmem ber, two-time Vice Mayor, Chair of the Education Advisory Board, Underground Utility Task Force and Charter Re view Commission, I have worked to create consensus and to get things done. While I appreciate the question, the issue is not whether I or Mr. de la Cruz deserve to be Mayor – the issue is what our Village deserves in its next Mayor. We have many projects and issues that we must move forward on L^LNZXX`YT_d?]LNLYO pedestrian safety, beaches, better school options, storm water drainage, public safety, and civility are items of concern that Z`]]P^TOPY_^SLaPTOPY_TPOL^important to them. As a Council, we will have to work together to do so. That will take a Mayor who can facilitate discussions that may get heated, but always lead us back to making a deci sion on how to proceed. It will take a consistent leader who has a history of reaching out to those who have contrary positions and listening to, and learning from, them. We have tremendous chal lenges and opportunities on this island, as well as tremendous resources. Now, we need to make the future that we want for our community. I have long believed that we are a stronger commu nity when we work together. We need a fresh start, and I look forward to helping make that a reality. Luis Lucho de la Cruz As mayor, I will encourage forward thinking and strategic [WLYYTYRbT_S^NLW]P^[ZY^TMTW ity, so that we take a “holistic” approach to our community needs and the direction we take moving forward. We are at a critical time with important projects and decisions pending. With degrees in both law and civil engineering, I am the may-oral candidate with the expertise and VISION to tackle complex, large-scale projects. We need technical minds on the Council as we further develop our storm drainage system, underground Z`]`_TWT_TP^TX[]ZaP_]LNOPYPXZ]P[P]XLYPY_^ZW`_TZY^for our beaches, push to replace Bear Cut bridge, etc. Lawyers are YP1TYLYNTLWXTYO^L]PRZZOTechnical minds are what we most need now. As mayor, I will encourage a common-sense approach and work to direct and empower our manager and our council to bring forth more of your ideas. I have also developed invaluable relationships with leaders at City of Miami and Mi-ami-Dade, which I will leverage to our advantage when we discuss Bear Cut Bridge, Rickenbacker .L`^PbLd[WLdTYRPWO^LYOother issues. This year’s mayoral election will be the culmination of all my PZ]_^ZYMPSLWQZQZ`]T^WLYO4have no further political aspira-tions. I have been fully vested in this community for over 45 years and working with the Village in var-ious capacities (councilmember, youth sports, KBAC, St Agnes, KBYC).

The next Council will make deci sions on issues that will impact the ATWWLRPQZ]_SPYPc_Q_ddPL]^LYObeyond. The Council needs mem bers who can analyze the issues LYOPPN_TaPWdTX[WPXPY_[ZWTNTP^for the good of all. A Master Plan is necessary in order to do that. Only by sitting down and decid ing what we want, where we want it and how we’re going to pay for it can we responsibly manage our development and the taxpayer monies with which the Council is entrusted. The next Council must prepare a road map to the Village we want and our children deserve in order to avoid mismanagement and the waste of our hard-earned dollars. I hope you have gotten to know me and what I would bring to the next Council by my infor mation online and at the various forums and events. As an almost twenty-year resident, business owner, parent and fellow taxpayer I ask that you give me, Ignacio J. Segurola #110, one of your three votes on November 6th. Luis Lauredo I have a passion for Key Biscayne, my home for 37 years.It drove me to join a group of citizens in creating the new Village government.

Many of you know me, and you know that I am easy to nd! For those of you whom I have not met yet, my cell phone is on my website – mikeforkbmayor.com and I would love to hear from you about the issues that are most important to you and your family or business.I love Key Biscayne – we all do – and I have been passionate about making this the best place to live for all of us. That’s why I ran for Council in 2006 and served for two terms. During those eight years, I was honored to be elected twice as Vice Mayor by my fellow Councilmembers. We did not always agree, but we got a lot of things done by coming together, putting our egos aside, and trying to do what was best for the community. We never undermined each other, and we always respected one another’s viewpoints.Unfortunately, during the last four years, the Council has not been as effective as it needed to be. There are three people returning to Council, and I know I can work with each of them. There are ve great candidates for the three open Council seats, and I am sure that I can work with each of them, as well. We have a lot of issues that need to be addressed, but unless we have leadership that is willing to create a team, the next four years will be the same as the last four.We need to negotiate with the City of Miami, the County, the State and Federal governments. But, if we look weak, it will be impossible to get anything done. If we are divided, they can pit us against one another, and we will not get what we need to get from these negotiations. As Mayor, I will strive to bring unity and cooperation to the next Council. My name is Mike Davey and I ask for your support. There is no doubt that my opponent cares as deeply about our Village as any of us do. I understand that this is a dif cult decision, and I am honored to be on the same ballot as him, and the ve candidates for Council. My only request is that, as you think through this important decision, please privately approach some of the people you respect most who have had a hand in bringing this Village forward – incorporators, past Board volunteers, Village staff, and the people with whom I have served on Council. They know better than anyone how I can best contribute to our future. Thank you. MY FELLOW KEY BISCAYNE RESIDENTS

Sea Level Rise is an existential threat already starting _ZPPN_[]Z[P]_dvalues. Our beach es and water need more protection. We need safer streets for pedes trians, cyclists, and everyone else. Add to that education, support for our seniors, and so much more. We need clear thinking and level-headed leadership to develop a real strategic plan, with real deadlines, and a council that fo cuses on major policy goals instead of getting hopelessly sidetracked on minutiae. And we must confront other problems like drug and alcohol abuse, fractured families, and so many other soul-crushing chal lenges. Your neighbors are hurting, often behind closed doors. Our community must increase part nerships with schools, churches, and other groups to develop what I call “resiliency of the heart” – it’s just as important as environmental resiliency and always will be for me. My decades of experience as national journalist give me a `YT\`P^VTWW^P__ZLYLWdePNZX[WPcinformation, sift out the facts, and communicate goals clearly. This is what’s needed on Key Biscayne.

Regardless of how you vote, absentee mail, early voting or joining us Tuesday at the precinct, just make sure you DO vote.

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM PAGE 10 THURSDAY, NOV. 1, 2018 Five Miami-Dade and one Key Biscayne amendment on the ballot You probably heard it by now: Key Biscayners are looking at an 7 page ballot. Why? Besides congressional, state government candidates and judges, voters are asked to make decisions on a long list of amendments. Mi-ami-Dade voters decide on sev-eral County R and Key Biscayne voters must decide on one Village Referendum.Key Biscayne Referendum A YES Vote on the KB referendum would allow the village NZ`YNTW_ZWWLNZ`YNTWZ]XLdZ] al vacancy by appointment rather than special election. It’s the ^NLWWd]P^[ZY^TMWP^ZW`_TZY_Zaddress council vacancies during terms.Miami Dade County ReferendumsCounty Referendum 1 A YES Vote on CR 1 would amend the Charter to make the election of the Clerk of the Circuit Court non-partisan. It’s currently _SPZYWdNZ`Y_dWPaPWZNP_SL_j^non-partisan. County Referendum 2 A YES Vote on CR 2 would reverse the existing law requiring NZ`Y_dZNTLW^_Z]P^TRYLSPLOof running for a federal or state PWPN_POZNP The proposed change would limit this restriction to cover only Miami-Dade employees running QZ]NZ`Y_dZNP If approved county employees could run for federal, state or city ZNP^bT_SZ`_SLaTYR_Z_LVPleave from their Miami-Dade jobs and stay employed by the county if they win, allowing a wider range of candidates to run. The existing rule involving employees running for county commissioner, mayor or other ZNP^bT_STY8TLXT/LOPgovernment would still apply. County Referendum 3 A YES Vote on CR 3 would require that when citizens want to pass an ordinance by referendum, the county’s lawyers will issue a legal opinion on the proposed law before organizers take it to a petition drive. This referendum proposes for the legality of a petition and its language to be settled before signatures are gathered. The current rule puts that vote at the end of the process. County Referendum 4 A YES Vote on CR 4 would drop a Miami-Dade candidate from a race if he or she dies. Miami-Dade already does, and the proposed change would continue that practice. In fact, this charter change would simply ratify rules Miami-Dade already follows.County Referendum 5 A YES Vote of CR 5 would ban Miami-Dade groups from paying petition canvassers on a per-sig nature basis. BUT petitioners generally rely on paid canvassers to reach signature requirements to get referendums on the ballot. Being able to com pensate canvassers ensures voters an important vehicle to reach the high signature thresholds neces sary for citizens’ initiatives.

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM THURSDAY, NOV. 1, 2018 PAGE 17 Dear Fellow Key Biscayne Resident, In this election, the voters of Key Biscayne are selecting three candidates who will serve on the next Village Council. I hope that after reading this letter you will conclude that I have earned one of your three votes. I was born in Havana, Cuba, and immigrated to Miami with my parents in 1979. I attended Belen Jesuit Preparatory School and then obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in English from the University of Miami in 1995. Subsequently, I gradu-ated from the University of Florida College of Law in 1998 and have practiced as an attorney in Miami ever since, managing my own rm with multiple of ces since 1999. I have had the good fortune of living on Key Biscayne at Casa del Mar since 1999. My wife, Mari, and I have two boys, both of whom attended the Key Biscayne K-8 Center. I honestly cannot think of a safer, healthier or more wholesome community for my family than Key Biscayne. In the past several years I have involved myself in this community by rst joining the Board of Directors of my build-ing, Casa del Mar, and then serving as the Vice-President for the past six years. I am also the Vice-President of the Key Biscayne Condominium Presidents’ Council and I have the honor of serving on the Key Biscayne Chamber of Commerce Advocacy Committee and being the Vice-Chair of the Key Biscayne Underground Utility Task Force. The next Council will bear the great responsibility of carrying on the torch of civic responsibility and excellence that was rst lit twenty-seven years ago. I view the upcoming election on two different levels. First, there are the obvious current issues that our community faces and which we discuss daily amongst ourselves: the need for a Master Plan and Vision 2040 Plan in order wisely manage our growth and the spending of taxpayer monies, storm water drainage, the burial of the utility lines, the needs and wants of the increasing numbers of both young families and an aging population, the Rickenbacker Causeway, traf c congestion and pedestrian and cyclist safety, the intelli-gent acquisition of more land for public use, the quality and safety of our local public schools, the quality of our police and re departments, and so on. We are fortunate to be a community that has the means to take the initiative in solving our own problems. We should not have to wait for any outside power to solve our problems given our resources. This does not mean to me, however, that the public trust should be violated by the unchecked spending of our tax dollars. For better or for worse, everything comes down to the money. Doing good things costs money and preventing bad things from happening also costs money. The one thing all of our issues have in common is that they can all be resolved so long as a keen eye is kept on scal management. With proper planning and projection we CAN plan for sea level rise and storm drainage, we CAN bury the power utility lines, we CAN provide programs and amenities for residents of all ages, we CAN create and spearhead a Rickenbacker Causeway Authority (with seats at the table for the various governmental stakeholders) for the management and maintenance of our one lifeline to the mainland, we CAN improve the quality and safety of our local public schools, we CAN ease traf c congestion and improve pedestrian and cyclist safety, we CAN acquire more land for public use, and we CAN hire and retain the best and the brightest for our police and re departments. In short, we CAN have the Village we all want and that our children deserve. The second level of this election is more intangible The members of the Village Council must have the capacity and the exibility to deal with not just the known issues of today but also the unknown challenges that will appear tomorrow. The members of the next Village Council must be the best quali ed to deal with these unknowns and must have “forward thinking ability” in order to anticipate and resolve problems. In closing, I hope this statement has sparked an interest in you to vote for me as one of your Council members in this election. I invite you to visit my Facebook and YouTube pages to see me discuss in further detail my positions on the issues and my answers to questions at the various C andidate Forums.

ISLANDER NEWS • ISLANDERNEWS.COM THURSDAY, NOV. 1, 2018 PAGE 19 Why are voters faced with a seven-page ballot? There is a long list of statewide amend ments that require your accep tance, or rejection. Every 20 years, Florida requires the creation of a 37-member appointed Constitution Revision Commission (CRC) to consider changes to the state Constitu tion. This year, 12 Amendments made it onto the ballot. Of the 12, three are legislative amendments, seven are amend ments by the CRC, and two are amendments created by citizens’ initiatives.The Florida Supreme Court removed Amendment 8 (and three others are being challenged). The CRC’s amendments are especially challenging for voters because they “bundle” ques tions, a technique that combines favorable measures that draws voters, with less citizen-friendly proposals. Amendment 9 is a perfect example: it asks voters to OPNTOPbSP_SP]_ZMLYZ^SZ]Poil drilling AND also to ban e-cigarettes at workplaces. To become part of the Florida Con stitution an amendment requires 60 percent of the cast votes.FLORIDA CONSTITUTIONAL AMENDMENTSAmendment 1: Increased Home-stead Property Tax Exemption A Yes vote would put about $200-300 per year back into homesteaded homeowners pock-ets by providing $25,000 addi-tional homestead tax exemption. School taxes are exempt. The loss of tax revenue would cost munic-ipalities and counties statewide an estimated $645-$753 million TY_SP]^_dPL]R]ZbTYR_ZZaP]# XTWWTZYLQ_P]_SPQ_SdPL] If the measure passes, the Florida Association of Counties estimates that local govern-ments will lose critical funds for ^P]aTNP^^`NSL^[ZWTNPLYO]Pprotection as well day-to-day operations in the very same neighborhoods receiving those tax cuts.Amendment 2: Limitations on Property Tax Assessments A Yes vote would protect taxpayers from sudden increases in property taxes when the value of properties rises in boom years. Cementing an already-existing cap that limits property tax assessment increases to 10% annually for “non-homestead” property (that’s mostly commer-cial or rental properties), it would prevent the repeal of the cap scheduled to expire in 2019. Florida TaxWatch argues that adopting A2 is crucial to prevent a huge tax increase. Loss of the non-homestead cap could decrease disposable income, increase rents and business costs. Local governments could benP_Q]ZXXZ]P_Lc]PaPY`P^TQthe 10 percent limit goes away. However, the Florida Association of Counties voted to remain neutral on the amendment. Amendment 3: Voter Control of Gambling in Florida A Yes vote would give voters the exclusive right to approve any expansion of casino gam bling in Florida, including slot machines and other electronic betting devices as well as games like blackjack, roulette and craps. Currently this decision rests with the Legislature. Preventing the Legislature from pursuing gam bling legislation means the state may not be able to make up that revenue should it ever go away. Voters in one part of the state could decide who should get ca sinos for other parts of the state — like Miami-Dade. Voters who oppose casinos strongly support A3. They include the League of Women Voters, No Casinos, the Fontainebleau hotel. Franchise dependent companies like Walt Disney Co. and the casino-op erating Seminole Tribe are also supporting the amendment (to protect their operations).Amendment 4: Voting Rights Restoration A Yes vote would restore the right to vote to former felons who completed their sentenc es; except murderers and sex ZPYOP]^,bZ`WO]PTY^_L_Pvoting rights to American cit izens who have paid their debt to society, but currently remain excluded from the democratic []ZNP^^?SP[]LN_TNLWPPN_depends on how many of the P^_TXL_PO!XTWWTZYLPN_POreturning citizens will actually register to vote. Studies have shown a clear correlation be tween being civically engaged and low recidivism. Florida is one of only three states that does not auto matically restore ex-felons’ voting rights. Many consider it a decades-old voter suppression tactic and a persistent reality. Organizations like the League of Women Voters and the ACLU support this amendment.Amendment 5: Super-majority Vote Required to Impose, Autho rize, or Raise State Taxes or Fees A Yes vote would require a super-majority (2/3 vote in the Florida House and in the Senate) to impose new taxes or fees or to increase existing ones. A5 was added by the legislature, arguing T_^SZ`WOMPXZ]POTN`W__Zraise taxes than it is to cut them. Currently, the state Legislature can raise most taxes through a simple majority. It also requires that any tax or fee increase be a stand-alone bill.

The casual dining landmark is a relaxed eclectic mix of moms with kids picking empanadas, serious bikers on the fringes juicing, and old friends gathered at the outside tables breakfasting together while cafecitos and stogies fuel their opinionated conversations. This island scene blends marvelously together like the traditional dishes and artisanal crafted gourmet delights served by its formally trained chef and owner of seven years, Carlos Flores. “I’ve always been into the connections that can happen over food,” said Flores. “I love that we have a place here where people can come, enjoy our food, and talk about the topics of the day. It’s XZ]P_SLYNZPPn Pork is a main attraction, but this is not your Mojo Badia doused cafeteria special. The secret, Flores willingly admits, is time. “We make our own mojo… we toast our own spices, we squeeze our own sour oranges, put in fresh herbs, and completely dunk the meat in a marinade for 36 hours. Then it cooks in our special slow roasted ovens. There is no rush.” Open seven days a week from 6am to 4pm, the daily savory menu is pork, plantains, white rice and black beans, a wide variety of empanadas, croquettes, sandwiches, pastelitos; and week-day specials. Flores doesn’t want vegetarians to feel left out of his unique culi nary take on classic dishes. “We have a vegetarian sandwich on French bread, with a black bean spread, plantains, guac, swiss cheese, papitas, lettuce, tomato, and grilled onions. It’s amazing.” The juice/smoothie stand is open daily until 1:30pm and stocked with fresh produce from the Redlands. Mildred Toledo graciously serves any combination of the seasonal fruits and vegeta bles, as well as ginger shots with lime and honey.

A Yes vote would grant surviv ing spouses of military members LYO]^_]P^[ZYOP]^VTWWPOTY_SPline of duty payment of death MPYP_^Q]ZX_SP^_L_PLYObLaPsome educational costs at public institutions. Most taxpayers have no problem with the negligible tax increase. However, A7 pro poses that public colleges and universities’ board of trustees would need 9 votes out of its 13 members to raise a fee — tuition not included. For a fee to be raised system wide, the State University Sys tem’s Board of Governors would need 12 out of 17 members to approve. It both means the costs of college could be kept down by requiring a higher threshold to increase fees. Good. But it also means trustees can prevent any fee increases, potentially hand icapping a university’s ability to pay for services. A list of issues packed into one amendment. Each should be vetted on the merits individually.Amendment 9: Ban of offshore drilling and vaping in indoor workplaces. A Yes vote would prohibit oil drilling beneath waters controlled by Florida, and in another example of amendment bundling, it would also ban the use of e-cigarettes (also known as vaping) at indoor workplaces. This is an easy one for most Floridians, especially those in South Florida. There’s the po tential loss of state revenue that bZ`WONZXPbT_S^PWWTYRZ^SZ]Pdrilling rights. Vapers would have to go outside.AMENDMENT 10: State and Local Government Structure and Operation Four proposals are bundled in this amendment. A Yes vote would:• Ask the state’s legislative session start in January rather than March in even-numbered years. The legislature currently changes its dates by statute. • Create a counter-terrorism ZNP • Make the state veterans LLT]^OP[L]_XPY_NZY^_T_` tionally required. r=P\`T]PaPNZ`Y_dWPaPW ZNP^_ZMPPWPN_PO%_LcNZW lectors, property appraisers, supervisors of elections, clerks ZQNT]N`T_NZ`]_LYO^SP]T^ This is a big deal for Mi ami-Dade voters.

Voters have to decide if the state constitution should decide how county level government runs its business. Miami-Dade’s Home Rule Charter asks that these issues be decided separately and on a local level.AMENDMENT 11: Property Rights; Removal of Obsolete Provision; Criminal Statutes: Again, several issues are bun dled; being challenged. A Yes vote would delete wording about the high-speed rail amendment that has since been repealed. It would also delete wording banning property ownership for “aliens ineligible for citizenship” originating from century-old, now-overturned laws such as the Chinese Ex clusion Act. The long Florida Constitution would possibly be a little more precise and brief with the removal of outdated and unconstitutional provisions. AMENDMENT 12: Lobbying and Abuse of Ofce by Public Of cers: A Yes vote would bar public ZNTLW^Q]ZXWZMMdTYRO`]TYR_SPT]terms and for six years following. Additionally it would restrict N`]]PY_[`MWTNZNP]^Q]ZX`^TYR_SPT]ZNPQZ][P]^ZYLWRLTY4_expands ethics rules for public ZNTLW^hMZ_SPWPN_POZNTLW^and government employees, including judges. With the Florida Legislature’s eight-year term limit, lawmakers-turned-lobbyists would be unable to lobby most former colleagues. Many govern ment-watchdog groups support this amendment. Amendment 13: Ends Dog Racing A Yes vote would ban grey hound racing in Florida by 2021 (already illegal in 40 states). Track owners would keep their gambling permits after they halt racing by 2019. Approx. 8,000 greyhounds are held in kennels to service the 11 Florida tracks currently in business – so for animal rights advocates it’s a no brainer. Greyhound trainers, breeders and others involved in the business say the end of live dog racing in Florida means job losses. Studies by the legislature suggest that the cost to regulate the steeply declining industry exceeds revenue by $1-3 million annually (Florida has 11 of the 17 dog tracks in the country). continued from 19 STATE

At 6 AM I watched CNBC to see how the stock market will open. After that I love listening to my classical CD as is Lang Lang while doing crossword puzzle from the paper. My life basically revolves around bridge, Miami Bridge, my duplicate bridge games on Weds & Thurs. Key Biscayners are so wonderful generous We just had our luncheon, which was a huge success – I have no compunction about asking people for money. It’s not for me. It’s for children at the shelter. When I take people to the shelter they understand why I work so hard.

Key Cosmetic ConcernsA beautiful belly button is possible after tummy tuck procedure. Dear Dr Kelly: I want a tummy tuck done because I hate my stretch marks, but when I go to the beach, I can always tell if some-one had a tummy tuck because their belly button looks fake. Why can’t the belly button be made more realistic? This is a common misconception I hear about many aspects of plastic surgery: “I can always tell when someone had a tummy tuck because the belly button looks fake.” “I can always tell when someone had a breast augmentation…” “I can always _PWWbSPY^ZXPZYPSL^WWP]^TYtheir face…” My short answer is “No you can’t!” People think that when they see an obvious, bad cosmetic result, that all results look like that. They couldn’t be more wrong. Just because you can tell when someone was overdone, doesn’t mean that you can tell when they were done right. Think about the red carpet at the Oscars. Sure you notice the stars that had bad surgery or bad injectables. But does that mean that the ones who look good didn’t have anything done? Do you think they are all just “natural” beauties? I can assure you they are not. They all have injectables and surgery. The dif-ference is that their procedures were done well and they were not overdone. In cosmetic surgery and injectables, if a little is good, more is not better. The same thing is true with belly buttons after tummy tucks. My patients always compliment me on their belly button after surgery. They tell me how they can go to the beach, wear a 2-piece, and it looks completely natural. The secret is technical, the belly button can’t be too big and the stitches need to be inside so they don’t leave marks. Get your Tummy Tuck done, but ask the surgeon to show you pictures of his or her results before you decide to have surgery. Choose a surgeon with natural looking belly buttons and you will be happy. See you on the beach! DR. MICHAEL KELLY A patient "5her before and after tummy tuck.Submitted
