The Coalition Against Marlins Bailout is against the Baseball Stadium Agreements that will be voted on by the City of Miami Commission on Thursday, March 19th and by the Miami-Dade County Board of County Commissioners on Monday, March 23rd. Our Coalition of community organizations and citizens is resolved to fight against what we believe is an irresponsible business deal that has been negotiated by our County government on our behalf. These negotiations were held behind closed doors with little to no transparency and the bottom line is that the "deal" is bad for the taxpayers of Miami-Dade County. We realize that many of us like baseball. However, we also know that most of us are not in favor of corporate welfare. This is not a choice of whether we like baseball or not. This is a choice of what is best for our entire community. The Baseball Stadium Agreements that were drafted by the Marlins attorneys with taxpayer dollars are completely one-sided in favor of a private, for-profit business. If you have had enough of this kind of corporate welfare let your voice be heard and sign this petition!


The Coalition Against Marlins Bailout is a pure grass roots effort that was formed by a small group of concerned citizens representing all corners of our community. The Coalition has quickly grown into an organization where community organizations and citizens from Miami-Dade County have joined hands to fight for what is best for our community...not for what is best for a profitable private enterprise. We have mobilized to let our Commissioners know that we, the citizens of Miami-Dade County, implore them to vote against the Baseball Stadium Agreements on Thursday, March 19th (City of Miami) and Monday, March 23rd (Miami-Dade County). Please take the time to learn about the agreements by visiting our website at http://www.nomarlinsbailout.com. Thank you!
