Carta al editor; Porque no puedo votar por Alfred Santamaria para Alcalde de Miami-Dade

www.latribunacolus.com

Desde hace casi 25 años vivo en Miami. Durante mis años de  juventud viví en el área que ahora conocemos como North Beach; para entonces simplemente parte de Miami Beach.  Viniendo de Bogotá, Colombia, era un privilegio estar a dos cuadras del mar y  a seis del restaurante “Mi Colombia” en donde podía comer bandeja paisa con frecuencia. Era como un sueño hecho realidad. El área fue cambiando y con el paso del tiempo, al final de los noventas empezaron a llegar muchos argentinos al área y con ellos llegó la panadería “Mi Buenos Aires” y “Manolito", donde aprendí (con alegría) a comer masas y migas. En esa época empecé a trabajar en la enmienda constitucional que promovía  el pre-kinder universal para todos los niños de 4 años en el estado de la Florida.  Fue allí donde me uní al equipo de trabajo liderado por el entonces alcalde del condado, Alex Penelas, el ex editor del Miami Herald David Lawrence, y el estratega político, Fred Menachem. Era un equipo en el que  las diferencias culturales contribuían a la promoción de un proyecto incluyente que buscaba representar y beneficiar a toda la población del estado.

 

Recorriendo casi la totalidad de los 67 condados que componen el estado constaté  que la discriminación hacia los latinos era real y existía pero que yo no la había experimentado porque en Miami, gracias a la inmigración cubana los latinos podíamos hablar nuestro idioma sin temer a ser discriminados. Sin embargo, en condados como Wakulla o Columbia sentí un poco de rechazo al hablar español.

 

Hace alrededor de un año recibí una llamada del candidato a la alcaldía de Miami-Dade, Alfred Santamaría. Mientras conversábamos, recuerdo que me dijo, “es hora de que un latino, que no sea Cubano sea alcalde de Miami”. La conversación me incomodó por esta y otras razones. A raíz de todo lo que está ocurriendo, cada vez siento más lejano el día en el que regresaré a mí país natal. Estados Unidos es el país que me ha adoptado, sin embargo  me identifico plenamente con Colombia. Amo a su gente, admiro sus deportistas, artistas y a sus hermosos paisajes, pero ahora tengo sentimientos encontrados hacia alguien que pretende dividir a la comunidad de Miami.

 

A pesar que los  colombianos solemos ser regionalistas y por tanto, apoyamos a los nuestros, en este caso no puedo serlo. No puedo darle prioridad al regionalismo cuando se trata del manejo de un condado que cuenta con un presupuesto de casi 7 billones de dólares y su administración puede comprometer el futuro de nuestra comunidad y el de nuestros hijos. No puedo apoyar a alguien que no tiene argumentos claros para cumplir sus propuestas electorales y no cuenta con la experiencia necesaria en el área administrativa para liderar una alcaldía. Como colombiano no le voy a dar mi voto a otro colombiano que pareciera buscar aprovecharse de los beneficios que pueda obtener en una campaña política. Es por esto que como colombiano no puedo dar mi apoyo a Alfred Santamaria.
