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.

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 now-closed 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. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's yet another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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