“The court is wrong for letting her go. She was doing a great job for the community.”

Mariah Reynolds, 19 Miami, student

“The court isn’t wrong. She did her time and now it’s up. It’s time to give somebody else a chance.”

Frank Davis, 43 Miami, property management

“As far as the law is concerned probably not; but they should have let the people decide. We are the people who elected her. We know what she has and hasn’t done for our community. This new campaign race is turning ugly. I would want to see her run again.”

Jean St. Paul, 76 Haiti, minister

“I think they’re wrong for denying her another term. She was doing her job well and she needs to continue doing it.”

Cierra Norris, 26 Opa-Locka, deli clerk

“I feel like she is doing a good job. She can get the job done a whole lot better than these other people that are trying to run. If people are pushing for her to get back in, then she has to be doing something right.”

George Blast, 43 Bahamas, dealership owner

“No, they weren’t wrong. She served her term, we are in need of some new blood.”
