Snapshot of incompetency: Season's Greetings
from Hallandale Beach, FL! Above, the holiday banner
on the HB/Aventura border on U.S.-1, in front of
Nana's Nursery School. I snapped a photo of it in
mid-July 2009 when the hear index that afternoon
This city banner was up there for over two years
and only came down a few weeks ago in mid-February.

In the near-future I'll be posting here a lengthy essay
that I already wrote a few weeks ago examining and
exposing Hallandale Beach City Commission candidate
Alexander Lewy's serial lies and back-stabbing
ways, along with his self-evident lack of character.
I wrote an earlier version that I emailed in the
Fall that proved to be quite a hit among the
well-informed and concerned citizens I know
and interact with, as people came out of the
woodwork to express their happiness at seeing
someone else express their antipathy and
contempt for Alexander Lewy, after seeing
how close he came to actually getting elected
One thing is for certain and that is that he won't
be sneaking up on everyone like last time.
Some of you already know about that and know
that I've just been waiting for just the right time
and place for that to appear publicly, so that
prospective voters are properly warned about
someone whom I believe history has clearly
shown puts his own interests above the best
interests of the city and its residents.
That day has come and it will be Sunday, unless
something unexpected comes up.
As if I didn't already have enough 100% factual
ammunition against him, over the past several
weeks, Lewy's slimy persona has really outdone
itself by exhibiting creepy behavior of a sort that
shocked even me, which is saying something,
since I've seen his handiwork before in person,
and have heard him say things to me he completely
acted the opposite of minutes later when it suited
his ego and personal ambition.
Everyone needs to be made aware of his personal
obnoxiousness and I am happy to be the person
who tells the tale, using his own words and actions
to paint the picture.
Because I've always known that this would be
necessary, I've got photos and video to buttress
my points, too, which is a great advantage for
those of us who want someone on the HB City
Commission who is GENUINELY interested
in reform and accountability here, and in pulling
the city firmly out of its ethical, financial and
intellectual morass, so that it can sooner be
the sort of place we all think it ought to be NOW.
Not without problems, to be sure, but a far
better-run city where ideas and facts matter
more than sheer brazen cronyism, and the
longstanding end-run around ethical principles
and professional standards of conduct and
behavior that I've been an eyewitness to
will be stopped dead in their tracks, with
examples made of those who forget they
work for the people, not the other way around.
We have to take full advantage of the opportunity
we have this Fall to make the necessary changes
and we start by eliminating one current member
of Mayor Cooper's Rubber Stamp Crew.
A meeting will be held late next week towards
doing just that and getting a fourth candidate
into the City Commission race.
I'm writing you now just to give you a head's up
and to let you know that when I say you'll
hear some telling anecdotes and troubling
first-hand accounts of his creepiness -which
I already have more than a few of-
which only highlight his general small-mindedness
and over-weaning personal ambition, I mean
Before I post it here, I'll be emailing a copy that
will not only be seen by quite a lot of people in
both HB, Hollywood and beyond, including more
print/TV reporters, columnists and elected officials
than usual, I also am making sure that the
Editorial Boards of both the Herald and
Sun-Sentinel are fully apprised of his antics,
though you'll be happy to hear that according
to some people, some of the members of those
two groups are already more than aware of
Alexander Lewy's creepy and aggressively
And yes, you're correct, these are precisely the
sort of people that someone like Lewy will
instinctively -and desperately- try to con,
befriend and manipulate in order to get his way.
Me, I'm just engaging in some preliminary campaign
work by telling these very people, among others,
what Lewy is most afraid of them discovering
-the truth about him.
Defeat Alexander Lewy now and keep on
voting against him until he moves away from
the area and tries to con some other community
into trusting an untrustworthy individual with
