New kingmaker on Miami Beach

The newly elected chairman of the Miami-Dade Democratic Party, Joe Garcia, has endorsed a candidate for the Miami Beach City Commission - without approval from other party leaders and before any other Democratic candidates may have launched campaigns.

On party stationery, Garcia distributed a letter endorsing Jonah Wolfson for the Group IV seat currently held by Simon Cruz, who is running for mayor in the Nov. 7 election.

City candidates appear on the ballot without party affiliation, but it's not unusual for local parties to groom candidates for higher office.

The only other candidate in the race is a Republican, Luis Salom, though other Democrats could run on if they filed paperwork by Sept. 7.

"I had a strong candidate and I pulled the trigger,''  Garcia said. "My job is to get Democrats elected."

It's August lst and no one has commented since one person on May 9th - DOESN'T THAT TELL YOU HOW MUCH PEOPLE ON MIAMI BEACH CARE ABOUT THEIR GOVERNMENT? It's the same old crap, political parasites like Randy Hilliard, Arthur Weinstein, David Kelsey, Kent Harrison Robbins running front men like David Dermer and Jose Smith - and now Ed Tobin and Deede W. - so that they can continue their illegal lobbying AND NO ONE CARES! Claire Tomlin has sponsored NOISE VIOLATING PROGRAMS on Espanola Way for 10 years. NO ONE DOES A THING ABOUT RESIDENTS COMPLAINTS BECAUSE SHE DOES POLITICAL WORK FOR CANDIDATES LIKE SHE DID FOR JERRY LIBBIN. A lawless town of people who DON'T CARE as this Website shows!

Luis Salom Will Win

VICTOR DIAZ WAS JUST PUT ON THE MIAMI BEACH CITY COMMISSION INSTEAD FO DAVID DERMER. DEEDE WEITHORN, JERRY LIBBIN, JONAH WOLFSON, ED TOBIN, SAUL GROSS ALL WENT BACK ON THEIR PUBLIC POSITIONS ON HOW THEY WOULD VOTE. SINCE THE DEAL TO PUT DIAZ ON WAS MADE AT A DINNER I HAD OUT OF TOWN BY PEOPLE WHO SHOULD REMAIN NAMELESS IT SHOWS MIAMI BEACH GOVERNMENT IS A JOKE - AND A BAD ONE AT THAT! DON'T WORRY I WON'T NAME THE THREE PEOPLE WHO HAD LUNCH WITH ME AND ARRANGED THIS TWO MONTHS BEFORE THE "PUBLIC" FAUX VOTE, ONLY TO RETURN ON THURSDAY TO VOTE AS THEY WERE TOLD. - AND JOE CENTORINO, RELAX, NO ILLEGAL MEETINGS TOLD PLACE, UNLIKE AC WEINSTEIN, JOSE BERMUDEZ, JORGE GONZALEZ, MATTI BOWER, JOSE SMITH, MURRAY DUBBIN, DONALD DE LUCCA, LUIS GARCIA, RICHARD STEINBERG, SAUL GROSS, DEEDE WEITHORN and HUSBAND, NANCY LIEBMAN, SUSAN GOTTLIEB, LUIS WONG, FRANCES FRANCES, JUDY HERNANDEZ, RAYMUND MARTINEZ, DAVID DERMER, KENT HARRISON ROBBINS, DAVID KELSEY,SERGIO RODRIQUEZ, RANDY HILLIARD, JONAH WOLFSON, ED TOBIN, VICTOR DIAZ, NONE OF WHOM EVER SAW A CITY ORDINANCE, COUNTY ORDINANCE, STATE STATUTE, OR FEDERAL LAW THEY COULDN'T RESIST VIOLATING.

AND, DO YOU THINK THE CITY OF MIAMI BEACH WILL GET STUCK WITH THE 350 MILLION DOLLAR PLUS JUNK BONDS IT ISSUED FOR MT SINAI BECAUSE JOSE SMITH, SIMON CRUZ, and DAVID DERMER HAD TO "PAY OFF" THEIR POLITICAL "DEBTS"? AND WHY HASN'T JORGE GONZALEZ TOLD THE TRUTH ABOUT THE CITY'S FINANCES? BECAUSE THEY SCOTT ROBINS DEAL TO GET 35 MILLION DOLLARS IN PUBLIC MONEY FOR "AIR RIGHTS" MIGHT BE QUESTIONED!!! WELL; AS NOTICED NOT ONE POSTS TO THIS BLOG, BECAUSE LIKE LOUISIANA and CHICAGO, THE PEOPLE OF MIAMI BEACH ARE AS CORRUPT, STUPID, and REPREHENSIBLE AS THEIR GOVERMENT AND THEIR FINANCIALLY FAILING PAPERS; THE HAMAS HERALD and THE SCUM POST
