I always liked Lucie Tondreau, the new Mayor of North Miami, I wrote about her in 2010.
What happened Lucie?
In the Miami Herald it said the North Miami police chief traveled to Haiti to protect Lucie while she was vacationing in Haiti. He traveled on the City of North Miami's dime ($2,800). She also had the police drive her daughter to school. You aren't the Queen Lucie, you are just the mayor of a stupid small Florida city. You don't get body guards on vacation.
I would think that Haitian Politicians who are just getting their feet wet in politics would want to make their community proud, not game the system. After-all, Lucie is the first Haitian woman to hold a Mayor office in the U.S.
The first Haitian Mayor of North Miami was Joe Celestin a flim-flam man to be sure. He was operating as an Engineer without a license. Among other things, he got his sister a car loan on loan papers saying she was working for him, when she never paid any income tax EVER. Then Mayor Andre Pierre was driving around in a $100,000 Porsche Panamera in 2010 but couldn't quite remember where he got it from.
Govern and stop with all this nonsense. If I were Haitian I would want someone to look up to not a self-serving huckster at the helm. You know better Lucie. Govern with integrity and be a role model. Make us all proud. You have a multi-cultural city, bring people together. The race card is a copout and pulls apart your community. Also it is unfair when you have no facts to make such blanket statements:
Tondreau was quoted in the Herald as saying, “The city car that was parked in my parking space was used by the police department since we have had threats to the city. Somebody wants to blow us out. Somebody does not like the fact that black people are in majority in this body. They don’t like it.”
Act like Jean Monestime. Be a gentleman/woman.
