Who is Lobbyist Ron Book Lobbying for in 2012? By Geniusofdespair


Inexplicably, there is a billboard honoring Lobbyist Ron Book on the Southbound side of I95. Did Ron Book pay for it? As I drove by I couldn't see any dedication to him on the giant billboard. Was he being congratulated by himself?

It is time to look at who Ron Book is lobbying for in 2012:

I donated to the MIAMI PROJECT/BUONICONTI FUND TO CURE PARALYSIS. Now that I see the money goes to Ron Book and not to cure paralysis, I will donate to them again.

Ron, please send your contribution to Friends of the Everglades. Everglades.org

He usually DONATES his time to charity and does not charge. In this case however, The charity gets a cut of the money from the red light cameras and in typical Ron Book fashion, he is getting money from the Red Light Camera company American Traffic Solutions. This is the kind of thing that he does (provides cover for government officials, thinks up palatable scenarios to feed the public, gives charities a pittance to provide cover) that stinks...using a charity in such a shitty way in some convoluted deal. I am sure he thought up the whole thing.

Ron Book is the same guy, who while being paid by Miami-Dade County, was the owner of a company installing illegal billboards on I-95 in northern Miami-Dade County. He still own illegal billboards. Creep.

I've been warned about Ron from many people over the Years, did not pay much attention to the characterizations, until I witnessed him speak at Legion Park about the "sexual predators". The ones forced to "house and report" under the 36 Street expressway bridge in this glorious republic, because of laws pushed on the politicians and NIMBY Citizens by you guessed it: Ron. He stated "I would like noting better then put these paroles on a barge and set them adrift in the Atlantic". Nice fellow citizen!
He also expressed outrage at the "animal" of a house keeper that allegedly molested his daughter for 6 Years. Guess he was to busy making money, then listening to his family members. Hence his crusade today to trample on peoples right to quiet his guilty hart.
The whole meeting had an air of clan rally when he spoke at length in presence of County and City Commissioners at the upper east side NIMBY meeting.

I heard that Sally Heyman was paying for the billboard from her office accounts.
