Campaign for $830 million Jackson hospital bond plans $2,500-a-head fundraiser

@PatriciaMazzei

Bigwigs from Miami's business elite will host a posh fundraising reception next month for the campaign for $830 million in public bonds for the Jackson Health System.

The Oct. 9 reception, at the Star Island home of CEO Stuart Miller, suggests a contribution of $2,500 per person to benefit Citizens for a Healthy Miami-Dade. That's the political arm of Jackson's Nov. 5 ballot initiative.

Carlos Migoya, Jackson's chief executive, will be the featured guest at the shindig.

"This will be the only fundraising event that our campaign, Citizens for a Healthy Miami-Dade, will be holding with Carlos Migoya," fundraiser Brian Goldmeier wrote in an email sent with the reception invitation.

The deep-pocketed list of reception hosts includes real-estate movers and shakers, lawyers, physicians and business executives.

Jackson's political campaign officially kicked off last week, though fundraising began over the summer. Migoya has said the committee has already raised more than $1 million -- usually considered the minimum for a countywide campaign in Miami-Dade -- though finance reports won't be submitted until next month.

Why don't they spend the money on IMPROVING THE HOSPITAL instead of trying to bamboozle us into taking out a loan to hand them more money to waste. (A loan is exactly what a "bond issue is, BTW.)
