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.

Tomorrow, Friday January 14th, 2011 may well be like Friday the 13th for carpetbagger state Rep. Joe Gibbons at Hallandale Beach City Hall

I'm still not entirely sure whether I will show-up for the supposed legislative meeting Friday morning at 11 a.m. with State Sen. Eleanor Sobel and carpetbagging State Rep. Joe Gibbons at Hallandale Beach City Hall, but if I do, I suspect it may be very unpleasant for Gibbons.
And that also goes for the city which doesn't currently follow the state's existing laws and Constitution, proof of which is right on city hall property if you are the least bit observant.

My multiple, formal complaints to Tallahassee about Gibbons NOT meeting the state's residency requirements for political candidates, the very barest of bare minimums, are just about ready.

Trust me, everyone in Tallahassee who needs to know about it will know about it.
You know me, I'm all about transparency.For more on Gibbons and the issues involved:

What do you know, at 2:30 p.m. on Thursday the 13th, less than 20 hours before Friday's City Commission meeting, there's nothing about it on the city's website -where it's supposed to be:
City Commission Meetings


You have to know to look for "SPECIAL MEETING"

Oh, okay!

Below, an excerpt from an email sent by Hallandale Beach City Commissioner Keith S. London to concerned HB citizens.

FRIDAY, JANUARY 14, 2011 11:00 AM

#HollywoodFL based photographer/entrepreneur Esther Chuang w/Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

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 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, out of what seems like the tens of thousands that I've actually seen, despite the fact that you can't actually see her truly amazing smile or dazzling beauty. But trust me, you know that it's there! An even more amazing photo when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to just get to this particular spot. At Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. ��
