You got that right Reverend Commissioner Dunn.
Your antics have landed our fair city in the New York Times.
Once Allies, Two Miami Leaders Are Now Anything But.
Even by Miami standards, however, the latest contretemps inside City Hall seem strange.
Many current and former city officials say they are concerned that Miami is backsliding into political dysfunction. After decades of tumult, the city has enjoyed a period of relative stability of late, with balanced budgets, a relatively low crime rate and a somewhat civil political tone.
“It feels like the hand of the past is grabbing us and trying to drag us back,” said Marc Sarnoff, a commissioner whose district encompasses much of Miami’s waterfront.
Back to where
When Mayor Regalado ran for his current office, he promised to bring Miami "Back to Basics," and now we see what he meant.
Mayor Regalado has returned the City of Miami to the darkest days of Banana Republicanism, with his cronyism, constant populist bullshit demagoguery and outright lies, and fatcat lobbyist Armando Gutierrez' backroom deals.
The Carollo/Suarez days had nothing on this!
Miami has indeed backslid into the days of dysfunctional politics - fiscal crises, increasing crime, and a coarse political tone - all causing embarrassment to the citizens of Miami.
Miami is once again the laughingstock of America.
Only one person is to blame for all this.
Mayor Tomas Regalado.
Like you said, "it's all on you."
