I have never been in such despair over politics.
|$33 a bottle. It flopped.|
County Government: Joe Martinez might sail back on to the County Commission In District 11 unless Felix M. Lorenzo can pull off a miracle with his $2,100 campaign fund. Juan Zapata left the race too late for a credible candidate to enter. Joe Martinez was poison on the Commission. It was a happy day when County Commissioner Joe Martinez ran for Mayor because it got him off the County Commission. He lost that, so he tried for Congress. He lost that now he is back running for the County Commission. He is so clueless and egocentric he actually produced a cologne called THE COMMISSIONER. Really!
The only good thing about him being back, I will have a lot to write about. Without Natacha Seijas and Joe Martinez, the pickings have been slim for me. How many times can you write about Pepe Diaz or a rant by Javier Souto?
Everyone in District 11: Vote for Felix M. Lorenzo not the little dictator.
|Little dictator's Congressional campaign was a big bust.|
|Walls! Borders! Hate Muslims! Bla Bla Bla!!! Have you seen my Poll Numbers?|
And, we have the threat of the worst Governor EVER Rick Scott running for Senate and the reality of Marco Rubio running for Senate. Woof!
On the County Mayor race, Columnist Fabiola Santiago suggests that Mayor Gimenez should wear a body camera because of his back-room deals. Really a very good idea, she claims (rightfully):
Yet, when it comes to potential conflicts of interest and back-door dealing, the mayor has a blind spot.He delivers done-deals like the megamall-theme park boondoggle in Northwest Miami-Dade to a spineless county commission that rubber stamps instead of properly vetting community-altering projects. His developer friends line up for tax incentives (aka corporate welfare) and get them despite promises to voters that there aren’t any, as in the SkyRise Miami giant steel hairpin.
But nothing quite captures the mayor’s peculiar sense of what’s fair game as well as the richly textured portrait of Gimenez’s relationship with his re-election finance chairman, Ralph Garcia-Toledo, a veteran county contractor, by Miami Herald county hall reporter Douglas Hanks. It’s a classic, required reading on how county government operates behind the scenes.
So it goes another Sunday of barfing as you voters vote again and again for the unthinkable, the worst of the worst.
More on Felix Lorenzo....
He could be a sofa, and I would still vote for him...Here is what he writes about his campaign, he is a tax phobia, that should appeal to many:
I am running for the position of Commissioner of Miami Dade County, District 11. I’m asking for your vote and would like you to ask your family and friends to vote for me as well.
Why am I doing so? I am the only candidate in this district who is politically independent and have NEVER been affiliated with any political party. Beside that I do not have any obligations to any institution, industry or lobby. My obligation is to all of you who live and work and study in district 11.
Your concerns are my concerns. Your aspirations are my aspirations. Your hopes are my hopes and like you I sense a different mood this year. We do not need to be reconciled to an inferior quality of life, mediocre solutions, or to the idea that things in government will never get better. I believe we can come out of these difficult times stronger than before and that we can make the bold decisions needed to do so.
This is my political platform and I promise to work hard to:
1. REPRESENT YOU AS THE COMMISIONER OF DISTRICT 11 (ONE WHO WILL NOT HAVE CONFLICTS OF INTEREST)
2. STOP THE CREATION OF TWO NEW CITIES WITHIN DISTRICT 11 (MORE GOVERNMENT = MORE TAXES)
3. STOP THE PROPOSITION TO CHANGE THE NAME OF THE AREA TO “WEST END NORTH” AND “WEST END SOUTH” (IT DESTROYES OUR IDENTITY)
4. STOP THE INSTALLATION OF RED LIGHT CAMERAS IN THE COUNTY (ANOTHER HIDDEN TAX)
5. STOP THE INCREASE OF COUNTY DEBT (NOW AT MORE THAN $28 BILLION)
6. ALLOCATE TRANSPORTATION TAX MONEY EQUITATIVELY FOR ALL THE CITIZENS OF THE COUNTY AND USE IT ONLY FOR TRANSPORTATION
7. DEMONSTRATE HONESTY AND TRANSPARENCY BY PUBLISHING FROM DAY ONE HOW THE DISTRICT 11 COMMISIONER’S OFFICE BUDGET IS SPENT ($922,000 IN 2015-2016)
This is our opportunity to break free of the status quo that keeps us from implementing effective solutions to our most urgent problems. Elections do not need to be about changing faces while little else changes, they are an opportunity to bring in candidates who are committed to you and to you alone.
As always, the power of decision is entirely in your hands. Your vote is important and each vote contributes to making a difference. VOTE FOR FELIX M. LORENZO FOR MIAMI DADE COMMISSION DISTRICT 11!
FELIX M. LORENZO,
P. O. BOX: 653253, MIAMI, FL 33265
PHONE: 305 - 227-2511 E-MAIL: email@example.com
