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.

So very creepy! Why does Hallandale Beach Vice Mayor Bill Julian hate the physically disabled so much? His despicable track record tells the tale!
The "Vice Mayor Julian" ball caps are from his private collection, and are NOT available to the public at any price, even at nearby upscale Aventura Mall.
Coming this weekend to my humble blog, with photos aplenty: So very creepy!
Why does Hallandale Beach Vice Mayor William "Bill" Julian hate the physically disabled so much? His despicable track record tells the tale!
The forthcoming post has been in the making for years -sort of.
If you are a regular visitor to this space, you already know that I've made cryptic references to this upcoming post about Julian for months and months, knowing that it would one day need to see the light of day, for my own sake, if not for the greater community's edification and illumination.
I'll be honest with you, it hasn't always been easy.
There were countless times over the past few years when I got so angry and frustrated, and was literally made speechless at what I'd personally witnessed at Hallandale Beach City Hall, that I was half of a mind to just go ahead and post what I knew for a fact, anyway, regardless of the circumstances.
But as we all know, context is everything, and just because you know something, doesn't mean you need to tell everyone else.
You have to sometimes let your head over-rule your heart, even when you know what you have witnessed was NOT right by any stretch of the imagination.
Well, that day of discovery is drawing nearer by the hour.
Conveniently, right before the election.
But words are hardly necessary when you have devastating self-evident photos that connect-the-dots on abominable personal and professional behavior.
If a photo speaks a thousand words, what do dozens of photos over several years showing the same contemptuous and noxious behavior say?
With well-nigh dozens of objective witnesses?
And camera surveillance video?
I'll tell you - they speak volumes about Julian's true lack of character.
And his foolish, over-the-top sense of entitlement in this small ocean-side city.
And, his personal belief that nobody would ever do anything about it, or say anything publicly, because of who he is and who he knows.
But who Julian really is is nothing but a dim-witted little man with a grand idea of himself and an out-of-control sense of entitlement.
Albeit, a dim-witted little man with a vote on this city's legislative body that helps decide this poorly-run city's future.
A future Julian has personally made so much worse than necessary by his own lack of personal attention and accountability to the position of power he was entrusted with by this community's citizens.
By any reasonable measure, he is a failure, at once the perfect patsy and "Yes man" all rolled into one, facts for which Hallandale Beach mayor Joy Cooper is quite appreciative of.
So much so, that just like her overweening, know-it-all young protege, Alexander Lewy, for whom she and her husband hosted a fundraiser last month at her home in the Golden Isles section of town, so too was the Cooper red carpet rolled-out for Bill Julian.
Curiously enough, when the fact that Mayor Cooper and her husband has hosted a Julian fundraiser was publicly mentioned by Comm. Keith London at a public Candidates Forum held at O.B. Johnson Park in NW Hallandale Beach two weeks ago, to remind everyone that Mayor Cooper would do whatever she could to defeat London, a fact well-known to everyone in the city paying any attention at all, Julian, somewhat incredulously, took indignant umbrage, saying that bringing this fact up constituted an "attack."
Really, facts are "attacks," and a fact that everyone in the community knows is true, including Julian, constitutes an "attack"?
Need I say more about Julian's reasoning skills?
That's who Julian is.
I was going to say that's who he is, for better or worse, but with Julian, it's strictly worse and worst!
Not that you have probably been thinking about it at all, but I've wondered for years what Julian's old friend and colleague, former HB City Comm. Francine Schiller, would think, when she finally finds out just what sort of abominable, unethical and illegal behavior her pal Bill was actively engaging in, even while she was sitting next to him on the dais.
When she was forced to sit in a wheelchair.
Now THERE'S a good question that somebody ought to pose to Schiller once she finally gets word about what kind of genuine creep her pal Bill is and was.
Maybe one of you reading this will even be the person to convey the upsetting message to Schiller after you read it here, and see the damning photos for yourself.
Julian's secret is coming out, but don't count on any kind of remorse from him once everyone knows the truth.
He doesn't know the meaning of the word remorse.
But that's hardly unusual, since there are many words that Julian doesn't know the meaning of.
Now, with barely three more days to go until the election for the two available seats on the Hallandale Beach City Commission, regardless of what happens on Tuesday, everyone who wants to know the truth, will know.
Yes, transparency is a wonderful thing.
No wonder Messrs Cooper, Julian, Ross & Sanders fear it so!
P.S. I may try to upload the video I shot of the HB Candidates Forum at O.B. Johnson Park on October 11th. Check back here on Sunday.

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and 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 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015
Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.
Today is the day. Today is a celebration. Today is my day. Today, I hiked, I photographed, and I explored. Today I choose to love. Today I'm happy. Today I'm blessed. Today is my birthday. Today is a special day for you and me. #birthdaygirl #birthday #birthdaymonth #brazil #braziltrip #rio #theview #livingthelife #lifeisgood #morro #rio #praia #travel #miami #miamigirl #luckygirl #loveisintheair #justdoit #artist #photographer #photography #taiwan #beautiful #vacation #viajar #instagood #smile #dreambig #wishes #true
