Vote for Lynda Bell, I DON'T THINK SO. By Geniusofdespair


Lynda Bell has a campaign website. She said she is going to qualify by petition like Daniella Levine Cava did. We'll see.

It says this on her website:

Thanks to the support of the residents of District 8, I was elected to the Board of County Commissioners in 2010 with the mission to make local government more transparent, efficient and more accountable to the people it represents. I am proud of my track record of rolling-up my sleeves and working hard to effect positive change for the betterment of our community. Over the past three years, I have fought hard to create jobs and improve our local economy while pushing for significant reform at County Hall, as well as helping to build stronger, safer communities while protecting our environment. With your continued support, we can stay on track and continue to move our District and our County in the right direction. 

The rest of the bullshit, I don't care about and won't bother commenting on. But as the recipient of 2 Statewide Environmental awards and my co writer as well has many more Statewide awards from Environmental Groups and is the President of Friends of the Everglades . We both agree on Lynda Bell's Envrionmental record: It stinks. We have both received the John V. Kabler Award, awarded from over 50 environmental groups, local, State and Nationwide, I can safely say as an environmental expert in the State of Florida on most issues: It is my opinion it is a LIE that Lynda Bell has protected the environment. She has done a masterful job of unhinging environmental protection beginning with her Wetland Meeting in South Dade on March 25 2011  and going forth for her entire term. At the March 25th meeting she let a man who had an open case with DERM (he was found guilty and is in appeal) drone on for nearly 1/2 hour when the speaking time was 3 minutes or so. She didn't control the audiences attacks on staff.  The DERM staffer quit about 2 weeks later. The guy speaking at the podium was the same guy who helped finance her husband's hotel and he held Lynda Bell's victory party at his home.  Don't get me started on rock-mining or lifting deed restrictions....

So Lynda Bell, say what ever baloney you want, but do not DARE GREENWASH YOURSELF.

In addition to being a horrible commissioner, she's obviously a great liar too

Lynda Bell is the most disgusting, vindictive, and back stabbing person I know.

What's the weblink? We'd like to see for ourselves. Lyndabell.com doesn't return anything.

I am not giving her link, why should I help her.

Bell is vindictive? Whooooo! That's a great example of the pot calling the kettle black! Just what would you call the language on this blog post?

Gene Lefthand said...

Look up vindictive. Lynda takes revenge. I am angry.

Anonymous are you Lynda?

No I am not. I am a 100% voter in District 8.
I am very disappointed in the tone of this blog which used to stand for alternative journalism in defending environmental concerns.
Over the last few years this blog has degenerated into Loooooving certain candidates (ie. Carlos Gimenez) without doing the proper research to find out who he really is and who his friends are, and Haaaaating others (Bell) and know once again, falling in love with Levine-Cava.

The tone of this blog has degenerated into a quite unprofessional one.

Lynda is a pig.

It is extremely difficult write a blog or news article daily and do in-depth research. These bloggers do an amazing amount of research, public records requests and interviews (which doesn't have have to happen, blogs can be editorial comments instead of investigative or educational pieces).

Finally, blogs are surprisingly like radio, TV, and print media: you, as a consumer, DO NOT have to tune in or read any content from any source. So, don't go places that you don't enjoy listening to, watching or reading.

PS: It doesn't take much research to see that Lynda lies, distorts facts and intimidates people by using either subtle or direct means. When city councils will not challenge her because they are afraid of lynda withholding county funding and services in retaliation ... Then there is something wrong at county hall.

You know what don't read our blog. We don't need you. I know Daniella, and I have to say Gimenez was the better choice than a guy under arrest. What is wrong with you. You don't like the tone, don't read our blog. We have plenty of other readers and you can go read the Miami Herald. 10 to 1 you live in that craphole Palmetto Bay. And I have always had a bad attitude and a bad tone. You are so off base I know you are a troll for Lynda, because everyone knows I am nasty. You don't like the tone...where have you been for 7 years.

Hey, there are plenty of us who live in Palmetto Bay who don't like Lynda Bell, or John DuBois, or Peter England, or Patrick Fiore, or Gene Flinn.

Gene: Your Google circles page has 7,652,693 views? Really? Really??? You must be a guy 'cause your starting to brag about the size of it.

Gene Lefthand said...

I don't know what that google circles is about so how could I brag about it.

We should all be as angry as God that Linda Bell is lying. I'm in insurance, if she lied about that I would be up in arms sounding the trumpet too.

Daniela will make a great commissioner.

Lynda does not wear green well.

She says safer communities...Homestead in 8 in the country for crime in small cities. She has been either a mayor or commissioner for 8 years. She has done nothing to curb crime.

Stay on topic.

I thought this blog was anti insider developers ruining our quality of life. Obviously not. There needs to be an investigation of all the conflict of interest going on within Palmetto Bay from the top down through the spouses that are all working to profit off new development.

Obviously

Why readers think they can control this blog I just don't understand it ---especially with lame arguments and trying to bait me.

On May 6th Lynda proposed a resolution under the 4 day rule THAT DID NOT GO BEFORE COMMITTEE THAT WOULD HAVE HURT THE EVERGLADES. Environmentalists rushed down to county hall. It was written in a devious manner so people thought they were helping farmers. Barbara Jordan pulled the item. Shame on you Lynda Bell for trying to slip something by the public.
