Holding a mirror to R.J. Intindola - May be time soon to publicly open-up on know-it-all ex-HB CM, and reveal 'inconvenient' facts he avoids

Taking a peek thru the rusty wrought-iron fence on S.W. 4th Street, you can catch a glimpse of the Old World Charm that surely must've been old Hallandale Beach City Hall. That computer monitor has been there the ground for at least four years that I know of. It's broken though, perhaps a casualty of the move to the new building over ten years ago. It's only your money! August 21, 2011 photo by South Beach Hoosier

I received this delicious out-of-the-blue tip on Tuesday night about a Facebook posting by former Hallandale Beach City Manager R.J. Intindola.

R.j. Intindola
Keith London, city commissioner for Hallandale Beach, Florida is attempting to hijack the charter review committee. He is a power hungry elected official intent on dwindling down the Council-Manager form of government.

Now I don't do Facebook myself, although there is a widget at the end of each blog post that allows you to post it to your own Facebook page if you want to.

(In case the link above is weak, it's at http://www.facebook.com/people/Rj-Intindola/1435804512 )

Next week it may be time for me to publicly open-up on this guy who had the gall to berate me in emails because I said publicly what anyone paying attention could see -that he was biased.
Biased, that is, in that he thought nearly everything he did was was nearly perfect when he was City Manager of Hallandale Beach.

And by open-up, of course, I mean revealing inconvenient facts he tries to avoid.

You mean R.J. Intindola the know-it-all expert whose brand-new HB City Hall parking lot was a veritable lagoon when it opened, so much so that even the Miami Herald actually did multiple stories about it?

The same CM who f-'d up the sale of the old City Hall, a move the city is -typically- STILL paying for public policy-wise, as it wastes away and is a longstanding public nuisance to the neighborhood for over ten years, while generating what exactly?
No jobs, no nothing. Zero.

You can see for yourself, even via Google Maps.
The R.J. Intindola that asked to be considered for HB City Manager post-Mike Good last year, and who got very upset that nobody-but-nobody wanted him back?

The R.J. Intindola that doesn't even live in Hallandale Beach?
Yes, that R.J. Intindola!

And then there were ALL those self-congratulatory comments of his last year in the reader comments of the The BrowardPalmBeach NewTimes website when Thomas Francis and Bob Norman wrote the truth about what was happening here, wherein HB political commisar Andrew Markoff -who believes in appeasing Cooper and her Rubber Stamp Crew- sucked-up to him in his comments like a hungry puppy, swallowing everything whole, while generally denouncing Michael Butler, Keith London and myself in particular -and many of you by proxy- as,
essentially, the anti-Christs of HB.

Absentee City Manager Getting Golden Parachute

Somebody needs to hold a mirror to Intindola and shoot some holes -i.e facts- into his Bunyonesque Tall Tales, and if I have the time next week, I'm going to start that process rolling, along with some comments about the true state of the disastrous HB Charter Review Commission that is, as I stated last week, the proverbial HB dog-chasing-its-tail.

Like Mark Antonio, Intindola's great so long as you take his word for it.
Or don't know the true facts.
Just ask him -he'll tell you how wise he is.
Without you even asking...

For the record, on my blog today, I've gone ahead and expanded that email of yesterday with some photos to indicate the degree of sheer obliviousness of current HB City Manager Mark Antonio to yet another issue that has-and-is going on in the very city he's supposed to be managing.
But which he's completely in the dark about!

These weren't even the most telling photos, either, merely the ones that were easiest to find on my computer early this morning of the dozens and dozens I've recorded over the years when Antonio was Mike Good's highly-paid Asst. City Manager, prior to Comm. Bill Julian's typical ass-backwards sabotaging of the City Manager search last summer that taxpayers were already paying for -BEFORE the public could actually meet the short list of candidates- which resulted in Antonio getting the very job that even Mayor Cooper didn't originally want
him to have..
But do you honestly trust Cooper and her Rubber Stamp Crew to choose a new City Manager that will be any different in substance or tone?
Even with a city election less than six months later that's highly-likely to sweep-out some of the current Crew of sleepwalkers out the door and bring in pro-reform candidates who believe in actually PERFORMING their duties and providing genuine financial accountability and oversight for the city's beleaguered taxpayers and business owners and making sound public policy?
I don't.

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

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.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." - Martin Luther King, Sept. 1962. #MLK I was a young kid living in #Memphis with my family that April night in 1968 when we returned home from a trip to #McDonalds and like so many nights before, I raced to the TV set in the living room to beat my two younger sisters to be the one who turned on the TV. As my parents walked in and settled down on the family couch, to see what was on TV, literally, within one minute, came the Breaking News that Dr. King had been shot elsewhere in the city. And the news only got worse as the night went on as news soon confirmed that Dr. King had died as a result of the assassination attempt, and soon there was widespread looting and violence in Memphis, the very things he had adamantly opposed. Eventually came the news that the city was under curfew, and sometime before midnight, because my family lived in a new-ish apt. complex that was on the same road as the nearby Armory, my parents and I and many of our neighbors watched in silence from the sidewalk/curb as tanks driven by members of the mobilized National Guard drove towards downtown Memphis, because the city's powers-that-be had decided that this would show the people who was boss. As my mother tells the story, one of my neighbors remarked on the irony of U.S. Army tanks being used to try to stop violence by Americans who were upset about the murder of a great man who had won the #NobelPeacePrize. It was the first time I remember ever hearing this strange word: #irony.

2 0 1 7. I made new mistakes and old ones again. I learned things I didn't know and I things I had already learned the hard way but needed to repeat either way. I fell in love again and again, with the same man, and realized that is the way to do it. I stopped thinking life happened to me and started enjoying taking control of what tomorrow would entail. I wrote even when it hurt and I apologized even when they didn't. I almost gave up but woke up and stood up and spoke up and didn't budge and moved on and forgave myself for not always knowing what to do. I decided the most important thing is to be proud of who I become and to make sure she is someone to be proud of. All I truly have is the opportunity to be whoever I want to be, and knowing that is everything.
