|GUESS WHERE MY THUMB HAS BEEN?|
Mayor's Aide 39'ed
Obviously the Mayor has nothing to say on this and the Herald has kept it quiet so far.
If she in fact was arrested, it is not the first Regalado Aide to have a brush with the law.
As we have documented in the past, Mayor Regalado's second floor City Hall office is a haven for felons, including Jose Marrero, a former special aide to disgraced County Commissioner Miriam Alonso.
"Court records show Marrero has faced criminal charges on three prior occasions: for cocaine possession in 1985, unemployment fraud in 1987, and making a false statement in 1999 as a result of the 1997 Miami election scandal. Adjudication was withheld in all cases, even though Marrero served probation in each instance."
At that time, "Marrero allegedly drove to job sites to work on the Alonsos' rental units and two contractors, one of whom, Isaiah Alvarez, recalled Marrero driving ``what appeared to be a Miami-Dade County vehicle.''
Marrero still drives around town in a taxpayer paid vehicle, this time it's not county, but City of Miami.
Mayor Regalado also overlooked the potential criminal activity of Jose "Pepe" Fulgueira who may have violated state law by campaigning for the Mayor's daughter while on official city business.
Then again, our "24 hour mayor" was also caught campaigning for his daughter on our dime and time.
And it was Mayor Regalado who gave now deceased Mercado cop Pablo Camacho a no-show job as a "police liaison."
From the top on down, the man who promised us ethics, transparency, and accountability has been anything but.
Instead, Mayor "Keen Knack" surrounds himself with family, felons, and lobbyists, all feeding from the public trough.
