What They're Saying: Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez

“We didn't talk about spirituality. We talked about dollars and cents, and where it could get done.”

-- Miami-Dade Mayor Carlos Gimenez on Friday's meeting on a proposed Miami soccer stadium, in reference to comments by David Beckham advisor and American Idol creator Simon Fuller in 2014, when Miami Beckham United was seeking a waterfront stadium. Fuller dismissed the idea of playing next to Marlins Park, calling the site “spiritually tainted” because of an unpopular subsidy deal for the construction of Marlins Park. That same site now appears to be the favored site for Beckham's stadium. (Miami Herald)
