According to the Miami Herald:
Long-time political mover and shaker Joe Garcia -- who has been the voice a powerful Cuban exile group, chairman of the agency that regulates the state's utilities and an unsuccessful congressional candidate -- has been nominated for a post in the Obama administration.
Garcia, 45, a Democrat from Miami Beach, was named on Tuesday Director of the Office of Minority Economic Impact for the Department of Energy. Garcia becomes the first Miami-Dade resident to land the highest ranking administration job.
This couldn’t make Manny Diaz too happy, he was slated for an Obama post. At least that is what everyone thought was going to happen. Now someone please tell me what the hell this post is. Sounds like something that was invented just to give someone a title. When will I get my appointment? I could become the Director of the Office of Majority Economic Impact for the Department of Social Networking any day now.
