WHY DOES THE STATE LEGISLATURE HAVE THE CITY BY THE BALLS?
The Florida Legislature has them by the balls!
"Miami commissioners say they are being squeezed into settling a lawsuit by a politically connected owner of a billboard company that is using its Tallahassee influence to undermine an ordinance that could mean more than $4 million a year to city coffers."
By who? A couple of well connected lawyers?
Why does the City of Miami spend hundreds of thousands on high paid Tallahassee lobbyists?
Can't any of them talk with the Speaker and Senate President?
Why doesn't the Mayor get the Speaker and Senate President on the phone and tear them a new one?
What about rallying the Dade delegation (the largest state delegation) to your side?
What about calling his pal the governor?
For Tomas, it was just a lot easier to blame everything on Manny Diaz.
Tomas has ZERO influence in Tallahassee.
His army of lobbyists can't change that fact.
That's why it's so easy for a well connected lawyer bring the entire city to its knees.
Thanks a lot TomAss!
