No more Joe Celestin and removed from office Lucie Tondreau. This is a time to make the Haitian community proud. There has been enough corruption. The last Mayor of North Miami was no bargain either Andre (Pierre?) who drove a Porsche he forgot who owned it, whose cousin was caught on tape taking a bribe saying he could deliver Andre's vote. I haven't liked some of Commissioner Monestime's county votes. He also is born out of the North Miami machine. I am afraid he has become a lobbyist's tool. He is beholden to Ron Book for his win. Prove me wrong Jean. Prove to us that you care about the community, that you care about us all. Show us you can buck the system. That golf course redevelopment did nothing for your constituents. That was a lapse as big as the Grand Canyon: Commercial and industrial in the middle of an established residential community. Would this zoning change have had a chance in a White or Hispanic community? I wonder. Remember: A lobbyist driven Chair is just a stool to be stepped on.
I am still waiting for that great Haitian leader to emerge. Let's see if Monestime can relieve the poverty and improve his district.
