Last week: Attorney General Eric Holder’s announcement this week that the Justice Department will no longer pursue mandatory minimum drug sentences for certain low-level, nonviolent drug offenders was welcome news. This common-sense approach, which is effective immediately, will eliminate the “one-size-fits-all” punishment for those convicted of federal and state crimes.
Looking ahead: The Marina Lofts project is up for final City Commission approval this week. This gorgeous project, designed by a world-famous architect, will help transform what is currently an eyesore along the Riverwalk into a vibrant and thriving part of Fort Lauderdale. Marina Lofts will generate jobs, density in the downtown core, and create millions in tax revenues. I hope all of our City Commissioners vote to support this project.
