Q: Why does the City of Miami want to privatize Marine Stadium Marina?
A: Not all City of Miami leadership is behind privatization of Marine Stadium Marina. The privatization effort is being lead by a handful of non-elected staff that came from the private sector who have incentives to privatize City resources originally designed for affordable use by City residents. These non-elected staff have profit-maximization in mind, over the benefits of affordable public water access to residents. They may also have relationships with private entities that create conflicts of interest.
