Mayor Cooper doesn't want them to, so they don't.
But they WILL host a free meet-and-greet for Mayor Cooper on Friday morning.
They're very obedient and well-trained in that respect.
Neither is news to either me or to those of you who are regular readers of the blog, given the truthful things that I've written about them in the past -their longstanding failure to connect with average HB citizens and business owners because of their unwillingness to be truly independent; of the grandiose and patronizing egos of those involved, the same tired familiar faces who so love crony capitalism...
Yes, that and so much more explains the Chamber's outlier status in this city, where instead of a being a positive and independent force for good, they're content to be a sock puppet for HB City Hall and Mayor Cooper.
Yes, for the people I know here who pay close attention to what is going on, above-and-below the radar, the Chamber's willingness to roll-over and play dead rather than be the independent voice for Hallandale Beach's small business owners that it ought to be, is just more of their same old tired way of doing things.
What IS news to me is the following, which I first found out about this morning via an email from Mayor Cooper's opponent, Comm. Keith London.
It seems that the Chamber will be hosting a Meet and Greet on Friday morning, the 10th, for Mayor Cooper -at a Hollywood hotel that's on both the cityline and the Intracoastal- the Crowne Plaza Hollywood Beach at 4000 S. Ocean Drive.
Of course they are.
The Kessel Crew doesn't miss a trick to keep their favored position at the public trough.
Well, since this event is FREE, unlike other Chamber events...
