*** PROUDLY LOVED BY CITY HALL ***
Who got indicted??
City of Miami under novice Tony "no private sector experience" Crapp is bleeding red ink. Last year City spent $2 mil per week more than revenues. Pay and benefits eat up 85% of every revenue dollar.How much is the City losing per week? Tony?
I have my consultants plus I rely on Larry and Diana for advice. Their numbers are never wrong.
Crespo, what's the deal? Who got indicted?
I'm hearing that it is Diana Gomez who indicted.
Love the pic for this post, got Exposito in the background looking bored
I'm hearing the same. Also heard that Larry Spring said that he knew nothing of the illegal transfers and blamed it all on Diana Gomez. Further heard that both Larry Spring and Diana Gomez stated the idea of the illegal transfers was former City Manager Pete Hernandez, former Mayor Manny Diaz, and one of his advisor.
CFO Larry Spring has been in charge for one "smoke and mirrors" budget after another. Illegal transfers. Lying to Credit Agencies. Way aggressive projections. Red Light Cameras. Jungle Island Bailout. $3.5 Bil diverted to Marlins. On and on. When will Larry do the perp walk?
Anon @ 10:18. Who was Manny Diaz's advisor?
Anon @ 10:29. I'm trying to find out. I'm not sure whether former Mayor Manny Diaz had an advisor.
It's Manny Diaz' fault.
How long before Tomasito pulls the trigger and puts Johnny at City Manager ?? I gurantee u Spring, Gomez and all associated with them will be sent packing fast ... Some may not like his style (including me), and he will bring in some cronies (to have lunch with and enjoy the remainder of his r and a half year ride)... But he will get positive results for the City.
An incorrect reporting of "gas tax"use to the County was done by the Finance Dept in August of 2010...who uses "gas tax" funds ?? Public Works and CIP ... Who approves their use ?? CFO ... Who reports how the money was spent ?? Finance Dept. Who transfers the "gas tax" funds to the general fund ?? Finance...
Pete Hernandez didn't have an original thought in his head except to get direct deposit for all his retirement checks ... He was the best yes-man ever...
To 10:29 and 10:36,I am unaware of Manny Diaz having an advisor. He micro-managed and made many rookie (and criminal) mistakes.Manny Diaz easily controled Pete Hernandez.
The story about who got indicted is The Straw Buyer's to tell. It's his scoop, so let's let him get the credit....I suspect that he'll post it tonight.
City of Miami Assistant Fire Chief federally indicted for fraud.
Veldora Arthur is also Chief Mo Kemp's long-time lover. They have been having an affair for almost 10 years. He's promoted her time after time. Now you know why.
Anonymous @ 17:14. You're so correct! This bitch has been promoted throughout the years and yet she was never seen in the City or have never produced anything of significance, except for Maurice Kemp. I won't call him a Chief, because he's anything but a chief. He is a token and not qualified, but is there once again because of the color of his skin.
How much is she paid?Mo Kemp still making $360,000 per year? Plus benefits?
Veldora is paid $150,000 per year. Mo Kemp is paid over $360,000 per year, plus the perks and benfits recevied from Veldora.
Veldora Arthur makes $184,000 per year yet she is indicted for mortgage fraud. Aledged theft? $11 mil. Possible sentence? 20 years.Will Tony Crapp fire her or will he continue to let her commute from Weston in Broward County and take money from Miami taxpayers?
Don't you know? She is black. He will look the other way......As Tony Crapp and Larry Spring says, BLACK POWER HAS TAKEN OVER THE CITY!
Veldora Arthur comes in at 10:00 and leaves at 4:00p.m. She doesn't come in to work, but does not take any time off the books. Works, better yet, shows up to work for 20 hours a week. Al Crespo ask Chief Kemp for any of Veldora's work product. Not a product completed by somebody else which she takes credit for, but something she has completed. Get her to produce her list of work accomplishments. She will produce the same thing as our Chief (Kemp) and Deputy Chief (Duren). NOTHING!!!!THESE ARE OUR SO CALLED LEADERS AND MANAGERS. NO LEADERSHIP, NO VISION, NO WORK, NO DIRECTION, AND COMPLETELY UNQUALIFIED. THIS IS WHERE POLITICAL CORRECTNESS HAS GOTTEN US.
This is an opportunity for Tony Crapp and Fire Chief Murice Kemp. Will they be leaders showing a "zero tolerance policy" for corruption or will they be racists?
Arrests occured eleven days ago yet no mention of anything in the Herald.
Tony Crapp will have to hire another consultant to determine what he should do.
15 employees of the Fire Department, with desk jobs, make over $300,000 per year. No wonder Miami loses $800,000 PER WEEK.
With desk jobs? Really? Why don't you throw the names out if you know so much?
Anonymous @ 08:08. Obviously you are a Miami Firefighter who is not working on city time. Let me see, do you make over $100,000, are you having sex on city time with one of the city employees, are you into mortgage fraud, do you not work hard or hardly at all like Chief Kemp and Chief Duren, etc?
88 of the highest paid 100 employees at the City of Miami work in the Fire Department. Fire union members will do and say anything to maintain the massive pay and benefits packages.
NEW TIMES just posted a story about Veldora Arthur, and gave credit to The Straw Buyer. Now, let's see if/when the Miami Herald decides to act like a real newspaper and do a story.A little blog broke the story. That's real news too!
What is Tony Crapp going to do? He needs to fire 500 employees. Why not start by removing all the corrupt and unethical?
Anon @11:00-Who would be left?
Quite a few who show up every day, try to do a good job, and are just as angry as you are about the shit that goes on. They are the ones who are providing me and others with information on these weasel scumbags.Don't knock the rank-and-file. They are on our side.
Al,Has the Miami Parking Authority honored you Public Records Request? Art Noriega and that little fucking pussy and weasel of a CFO are also scumbags. They both covered up for Commissioner Sarnoff.
By the way, the CFO is Scott Simpson.
Scott Simpson is a prick!
I received a partial response. I have filed a new request for complete compliance. If I don't get it, I will be moving to amend my lawsuit.
During last years Budget process Art Noreiga and Miami Parking Authority promised to contribute $7.5 mil annually to Miami's budget. Recently they disclosed they might lose $1 mil.How does Noreiga keep his job and $300,000 package?How will Tony Crapp make up the loss?
Tony Crapp, Assistant Fire Chief Veldora Arthur commits mortgage fraud. $300,000 pay and benefits package. $11 mil Indictment. Brings embarrassment to City of Miami.You need to reduce overhead.What will you do?Concerned Taxpayer
@ anon 8:30... I am a city firefighter and I am not on city time while reading this blog because I am on my day off. No I do not make 100K and I do show up to work and no I don't have sex with my coworkers although I wish I did. You seem to think that everyone who works for the city is a POS and that is far from the truth. Within any organization either public or private, there are good and bad people. I don't have anything to do with mortage or any kind of fraud and no I don't hang out with Kemp or any white shirts. To tell you the truth I am one of the stupid ones who went to college and paid for a bachelor's degree out of my pocket and then went to fire and paramedic school also out of my pocket. No I didn't get hired without certifications like some people do. I did everything I had to do and just to piss you off, I deserve everything I get from my job. Whatever Veldora did, shame on her. But don't talk shit about all the other city fire and police employees who do their jobs day in and out to protect ungrateful people like you who critique but eventually will need our services for you or your family. Why don't you fight to improve your lifestyle and career and stop being so bitter? Why don't you do some real research and inform yourself with real facts? Those 88 employees you claim make so much money are not the mayority. There are almost 600 fire employees and if 88 make so much money like you say then those are the chiefs and workers nearing retirement who have been on for almost 30 years or more. I'm not defending their salaries but don't talk out of your ass just because you are jealous.
Average income of City of Miami residents is $26,000. Average compensation package of City of Miami fire union members with 8 or more years of service is $200,000. Little taxpayers make Fire rescue employees into multi-millionaires. Can't blame firemen, they just took what idiot City officials gave them.Corrupt fire lady keeps getting paychecks.City faces another deficit. Again. No surprise.
How many employees have committed crimes?How many corrupt employees does Tomas Regalado keep on the payroll?
City is drowning in red ink.Losing $800,000 per week?
