    Uncle Luke….if you are voted for Mayor, PLEASE,PLEASE do something about the neighborhood of Allapattah. We are a sinking ship. We need to filter out the illegal immigrants here and also the drug dealers who are all over. The empty lots are depressing and the sidewalks are trashed upon, etc, etc. A complete makeover is needed to Allapattah. Thank you.
