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.

Coming soon: Race baiting in the FL-17 congressional race and the case of the curiously-placed campaign signs

Coming soon: Race baiting in the FL-17 congressional race.
Just because it's low-key race baiting doesn't mean it's
NOT race baiting.

You want proof, I've got it, plus, the curious case of the FL-17 campaign signs in Hallandale Beach and elsewhere that keep going up where they are explicitly forbidden: on the property of churches and public schools.

And yes, I've got the photos to prove it.
That they've been in some of these locations for so long calls into question a lot of things about the candidates and their campaigns.

I'll also highlight some of the important questions that the South Florida news media aren't asking the
FL-17 candidates as Primary Day draws near, while Miami & Fort Lauderdale-area print and TV reporters continue to snooze this summer away in their air conditioned offices, far from the candidates and the voters in a race that will send a new face to Washington to represent them.

To repeat what I said recently, is there a major newspaper in the country doing a worse job of covering an open U.S. House seat than the Miami Herald?

If so, please tell me the name of the newspaper and the CD and a short explanation making the case, and I will be happy to mention it here.
Frankly, I don't think I'll get any takers for obvious reasons.

And trust me, the Herald reporters
really, really don't want to leave their office and get out into our sweltering weather, which is why they love forcing the candidates to come to them.

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 2016
