Florida is a state with mega-traffic problems. It has a citizen's group -appointed by the governor- to make recommendations on all things pertaining to transportation policies. It's our Florida Transportation Commission.
The group should be composed of our state's best and brightest, people with extensive experience in leadership, the formulation of policy and strong educational backgrounds.
On Friday Florida's least-loved governor, Rick Scott, appointed Coconut Grove's Teresa Sarnoff to serve a four-year term on the commission. While the former secretary has never held a position of leadership (or a college degree), she and her husband are strong Scott supporters and helped raise money for his recent campaign.
I know Teresa. She drives a in Miami traffic and I saw her on a bike once. Maybe that -and raising money for awful politicians- is enough.
