"To provide the full range of legal services and representation to the City Commission, and the Administration in a timely, efficient, and cost-effective manner."
"The office employs approximately 58 professionals including two Deputy City Attorneys and 21 Assistant City Attorneys, who provide legal advice and serve as counsel to the City’s elected public officials as well as all appointed officials, and all boards and departments. Lawyers in the Office of the City Attorney are recognized for their excellence in the area of local government law and are experienced and skilled in many practice areas, including civil rights and tort litigation, government contracting and procurement, land use, labor and employment, public records, sunshine law and ethics."
These 58 "professionals" despite being "recognized for their excellence" and that are "experienced and skilled in many practice areas" CANNOT defend Mayor Regalado, Tony Crapp, Larry Spring, Diana Fernandez, and others from an SEC investigation.
Ms. Bru "so far, has spent $659,724.33 on outside counsel hired to represent the city."
Did the Mayor's Press Secretary ask what firms this money is going to?
Did any of these firms contribute to Regalado's mayoral campaign?
What about the campaign of Regalado's daughter, Raquelita, did the firms contribute to her also?
And exactly whom is the Shameless Mayor speaking with at the SEC to make a claim that "the city will likely agree to some type of fine without an admission of guilt."
The people of Miami are TIRED of your lazy ass bullshit reporting, especially when you take every single word that comes out of the Shameless Mayor Regalado at face value.
People's hard earned tax dollars are being wasted every single day by Tomas Regalado, his Phantom Mayor Armando Gutierrez, and the completely moronic and inept Tony Crapp.
Now we add you Chuck to the list.
Your constant attitude of "looking the other way" and providing excuses for Regalado and his band of cronies make you an accomplice.
The people are NOT STUPID Chuck, irrespective of what the opinion is at One Herald Plaza.
You and the Herald are now fully complicit with the corruption going on at City Hall.
