Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

Plucky underdog HB activists live to fight another day as Broward County Commission votes 4-4 on Diplomat LAC

Hallandale Beach Chicken of the Sea coming home to roost?
No, plucky Hallandale Beach residents know better than
to crow yet and prematurely count their chickens!

Fowl weather at Hallandale Beach may be very bad news
for Hallandale Beach City Hall and their lapdog acolytes.

I'm very, very pleased to say tonight that on Wednesday,
I will be posting my pithy comments
and analysis,
along with some photos and video,
of today's important
Broward County Commission
meeting on the Diplomat
proposal, which resulted in a series of 4-4 votes
on various motions,
meaning that under the County's
rules, the next
step will be yet another meeting before
County Commission, on April 13th.

Three more weeks to try to peel away one of the
county commissioners.

Political drama!

Stacey Ritter
and Ilene Lieberman are lost causes
in more ways than one as I've mentioned
here previously,
and didn't even need to be in the
room for those of us
opposed to the Diplomat's
condo towers to know
they'd already made up
their mind, as I predicted here
-and I was right.

They weren't there, but you could feel the aloofness
and condescension over the phone line.

The over-confident
Diplomat officials, unctuous
union lackeys and the high-priced lawyers,
and consultants they've been paying for
months left
the Broward Commission Chambers
in shock!

You see, they were counting their chickens
they were cooked!
