Our Public Defender Carlos Martinez!!!
As detailed in ace Herald reporter David Ovalle's article this week, Carlos Martinez was in Tallahassee successfully fighting for a pay raise of 6% for his employees after years of drought.
This success was to the chagrin of Miami SAO Kathy Fernandez-Rundle, who immediately cut short a vacation to complain that prosecutors, who have for years been paid more than PDs, weren't being given a space at the trough.
From the article:
For fighting the good fight for his dedicated and under-paid employees, the honour of being our first person of the week is Miami-Dade Public Defender Carlos Martinez.
