Instead Rabin attacks Chief Exposito, devoting the first four paragraphs of his article to reporting and continuing the childish bickering between the mayor and police chief.
Only after he sets up the conflict between mayor and chief, conveniently failing to mention that it was the mayor who hired the chief in the first place, does Chuckie say that Retardado "focused on public/private partnerships, keeping the city clean, art in public places and helping the poor."
Miami is going bankrupt.
The CFO Larry Spring has his properties foreclosed on.
The budget is based on non existent revenues from red light cameras and the failed takeover of the parking authority.
Billboards going up everywhere, with lobbyists and special interests controlling City Hall.
All anyone has to do is read this blog, The Crespo Gram Report, Investigation Miami, the Straw Buyer, to know THE CITY IS ALL FUCKED UP!!!
And Chuck Rabin reports on the bickering between the mayor and chief???
What vision did Mayor Regalado lay as to how he intends to lead the city forward as he hacked and coughed his way though his so called speech?
No vision at all.
Where are the opposing and critical views the Herald used to include when Mayor Manny Diaz gave state of the city speeches?
But Chuck did make sure to take one final swipe at Chief Exposito.
If you are going to be a sycophant, at least pick someone with class.
Unfortunately for the citizens of Miami, you got your head up the Tom Ass!
