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.

Hialeah's future: "Four more years of exposing Gavelgirl's graft and vulgar griteria tactics"... "makes Ladra's tail wag like mad..."

Ladra on Hialeah primary election results: "Four more years of exposing Gavelgirl's graft and vulgar griteria tactics"... "makes Ladra's tail wag like mad to think of her up on the dais with" Raul Martinez as mayor.

Or as blogger Elaine de Valle wrote yesterday in the voice of her muse & alter ego, half-way thru one of the most accurate and delicious blog posts I've seen this year, about the prospect of two XL egos on one dais, fighting for oxygen and the microphone:

And, I love to admit, it makes Ladra's tail wag like mad to think of her up on the dais with Martinez as mayor. In fact, that image among voters might boost the Dark Prince's numbers in the run-off.

*In case you don't know, when she references Sasha Tirador as "the AB Queen," she's talking about absentee ballots, long a subject of much controversy and legal & criminal investigation in the City of Progress for reasons too numerous to mention here. Tirador's working for incumbent Hialeah mayor Carlos Hernandez who received 40% of the votes Tuesday and who faces former longtime mayor Raul Martinez in the run-off on November 15th.

Shock in Hialeah election upsets
By Elaine de Valle,
Wednesday, November 2, 2011

The Hialeah election primary ended Tuesday in a thud heard 'round the City of Progress and met with what can only be called shock and/or total disbelief by the hundreds of supporters and volunteers (not to mention the paid political consultants) that waited for results at the campaign offices of both former State Sen. Rudy Garcia and former Mayor Raul Martinez, where many undry eyes watched su alcaldito Carlos Hernandez hang on to a formidable lead.

Above, me in June, pre-recent haircut, near acres and acres of orange groves off Scenic U.S. #17 in Frostproof, FL, while visiting hot/humid Central Florida, which I'm convinced is where heat/humidity goes in the Summer to get away from it all... The oppressive heat & humidity there is literally everywhere you go. :-(
