I have received annoying home phone calls about this race and from a Palmetto Bay candidate. Don't call me on holiday weekends. It makes me very angry.
Here is what Peggy Bell should do to salvage her campaign:
Send me an email and say she will recuse herself from any votes that this toxic campaign manager has anything to do with. Geniusofdespair@yahoo.com A Lobbyist/Campaign Manager is a BAD mix.
Sue Ellen Loyzelle should do the same, promise to recuse herself from anything Castillo has before the council.
I know Peggy Bell was warned not to use Castillo and she didn't listen. She also didn't have the balls to support Daniella publicly because she didn't have the FAITH that she would win or she liked Lynda Bell better. I find her hiring of Castillo disrespectful of Daniella considering all the dirty tricks Castillo played against her like trying to link her to the Marlins vote. And I know for a fact Peggy likes Lynda Bell: Because she told me.
Actually -- I don't give a crap about this race. I personally would not vote for anyone who was using Jose Luis Castillo. But the promise to recuse themselves would at least help the scabs heal. I wrote about Councilwoman Loyzelle campaign as well in 2011. Same complaint:
Loyzelle said further, "I am very proud of the all the money coming to my campaign." I personally would have returned Vile Natacha's $100.If you want to clean up the system you have to start in your own backyard Peggy. Out of respect for Daniella Levine you could have found someone else. I wouldn't vote for Nanni either. If I got that promise from Peggy I might hold my nose and vote for her. Otherwise I just couldn't vote in this race. And you know my mantra: ALWAYS VOTE. This race disgusts me too much.
Second bone I had to pick with her was the hiring of Natacha's guy Jose Luis Castillo who also worked on Lynda Bell's campaign. Loyzelle said she met with many campaign managers and he was the best choice. Castillo's wife works for Lynda Bell by the way. Loyzelle also said she didn't know anything about Castillo or his long history with Natacha. That made me think again, she should have done as she told me to do -- do her homework. Yes, I may be ignorant of the whole person Suzy Loyzelle whom I never met, but she is ignorant of people she actually knows.
Why do I ask for the recusal BECAUSE THE INFLUENCE BY CASTILLO HAS ALREADY HAPPENED IN CUTLER BAY.
Castillo already got an ethics fine about Cutler Bay. One comment on the linked blog:
Cutler bay council members Sue Loyzelle and Ernie Sochin voted for everything Castillo wanted passed. Castillo was paid by Loyzelle to run her campaign, and Sochin is thought to have gotten Castillo's help behind the scenes. Nice to see Castillo get his hands slapped. Shame that Loyzelle and Sochin are so easily influenced.ON the phone call the Peggy Bell cheerleader said the Campaign Manager is not the candidate -- a very tired argument. I would rather say the candidate is judged by their association. If you hire scum what does that make you? I do not think Eugene Flinn lost the race to Lynda Bell in a legal election in 2010. I think it was stolen from him in illegal absentee ballots. The State Atorney's office just found 2 men guilty of absentee ballot fraud that were working for Castillo on the Mark Bell campaign for Mayor. What does that say?
I talked to a friend who wanted a development in district 8. He met with Lynda Bell and Castillo. What does that say?
We need the candidates to clean up corruption. Didn't anyone learn anything at Katy Sorenson's good government class? And Art Nanni is no angel either. But Cutler Bay: You stink. Don't have your friends call me on a holiday. You might not get the response you want.
