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.

Another part of Hallandale Beach City Hall's Dept. of Propaganda & Mis-information makes it official: Hallandale Beach Area Chamber of Commerce will NOT be hosting any candidate debates in the next 13 weeks before Election Day. 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.

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.
Conveniently so.
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...

Keith S. London - City Commissioner Hallandale Beach
Your Tax Dollars At Work! The Chamber Does Not Work For “US”.
Everyone,
Three months before the election, your tax funded Hallandale Chamber of Commerce is holding an event exclusively for the Mayor.
Please review the attached email.
Furthermore, the event is being held in Hollywood, not in the City of Hallandale Beach.
This event should include all candidates running for office in Hallandale Beach; or perhaps the entire city commission. Sponsoring a debate between the candidates would be appropriate too.
Singling out one elected official, particularly so close to an election, is entirely inappropriate.
Keeping you informed,
Keith

Me in the Summer of 2016
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. :-(
