Be Careful With Public Records. By Geniusofdespair

I read John Dorschner's article in the Miami Herald about reducing the number of members of the Public Health Trust from 17 to 7. Dorschner left out how each member of the commission voted. That information is very important to me.

How the Commissioners stack up is my shortcut to figure out how good or bad an item is when I don't know the issue. I see which side the REALLY BAD commissioners are on. In this case, the way the commission voted tells me nothing. You have some of the worst and best on both sides.  I have to assume it is bad with Bell, Martinez and Diaz. But why is Sally Heyman and Rebeca Sosa voting with them? And why is Barreiro on the other side? Maybe he is voting right because he is up for reelection? Anyone have an opinion on the Public Health Trust Membership? I don't want to have to watch the video of the meeting, that is always self-torture.

Anyway, when I went to check the County Website because of Dorschner's omission,  I found it interesting that the draft minutes yesterday are so different from the draft minutes of today on this item. Had I not double-checked today, I would have given you bad info. Here are screen shots of both:

How could yesterday's entry be so wrong? even the seconder is incorrect.

This was a very heavily lobbied vote by Migoya and company. There will be news coming about the financial shenanigans going on in the Executive Offices of Jackson.

They figure no one is watching. Hell, if Lynda Bell can claim credit for the Palmetto Bay govt building she campaigned against, wtf else can they do to taxpayers?

The inconsistency in the record is simply wierd! Leaves one wondering what is or is not accurate at all --- but please, please, don't ask me to watch the tape!

From 17 down to 7 is always good. Too many cooks spoil the broth.

Plus getting 17 people together is not easy. Good for the Commission and a logical decision.

And with only 7, it is a lot easier to cook the books.

What are you kidding, she's claiming credit for it and Jim Araiza and John Dubois, her buddies as well as Karyn Cunningham in allegiance with the Recall Palmetto Bay group are still knocking the building. Of course they need something to say. According to Karyn the village has no cops (she had a knock down drag out at the Town hall Meeting the other night with the Commander), John says we have too many and Jim wants to hire Security guards and the boy scouts. Howard doesn't need anymore cops cause he hasn't gotten robbed yet.
