The Greater Miami Chamber of Commerce has its "Sand In Your Shoes Award", given to a hoo-ha whose career coalesced around civic boosterism.
Eye On Miami will take reader nominations for our first annual, "Sand In Your Eyes Award".
The rough qualifications for the award: a person, an agency or corporation whose actions have substantially added to the incredulity that goes along with observing Miami.
Last year, for example, the award could have been shared by Ana Sol Aliegro and GOP Congressman David Rivera for setting a new low bar for election violations. Or Miami Marlins owner Jeffrey Loria with elected officials who approved the worst stadium deal in America.
Maybe you have a lobbyist in mind, or, a county commissioner who tried to strong-arm campaign contributors to push her husband into the mayor's office of a small city in South Dade that wouldn't take her back in a million years.
Readers, give us your nomination and your reasons. It's all on you.
