Above, my friend and fellow Hallandale Beach civic activist, Csaba Kulin, at a place that ought to be one of the city's crown jewels and a natural meeting place for the whole community -but isn't: the City of Hallandale Beach's very poorly-maintained North Beach park, with the iconic HB Water Tower and The Beach Club condo towers to his right. He's looking south with Hollywood Beach to his back, in particular, the construction site for The Related Group's 20-story condo project, The Apogee, which is actually Hollywood. The longstanding rusty eyesores on the public beach that I've previously discussed completely jars any positive experience you could have, situated as they are right in the middle of the beach. Csaba is running for HB City Commission this year precisely because of the sort of longstanding public neglect and failure by HB City Hall to own-up to their own mistakes and responsibilities in this city, one that this unappealing public beach represents, And this is just the tip of the iceberg.
When visitors come here, they wonder, "If they can really screw-up a beach, how bad must things be where nobdoy goes frequently?" Exactly. So what ought to be a source of great civic pride is instead the place that is largely avoided when friends and family come to visit because it's so embarrassing and unappealing, esp. with Hollywood Beach and Johnson Street nearby.

With exactly 12 weeks to go until Election Day, the campaign website of my friend and fellow Hallandale Beach and Broward County civic activist, Csaba Kulin, is now officially up and running.
And trust me, with so much to discuss about how the City of Hallandale Beach has gotten into the sorry state it's in now under the current administration, and what steps and initiatives will be necessary to get things moving forward for EVERYONE in the city, not just for the mayor's crew of crony capitalism friends, his website will NOT remain static for the next 12 weeks, like most campaign websites.
