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.

When it comes to ethics problems in Joy Cooper's Hallandale Beach, and elected officials' attempts to evade responsibility, there's no sense like common sense, and CityEthics blogger Robert Wechsler has plenty: "An Interesting Agency Independence from Ethics Enforcement Issue in Broward County"

I forwarded this to about 15O people around South Florida less than thirty minutes after it was first posted online a month ago, on July 9th, and thought that I'd gone ahead and linked and re-posted my email here, but over the weekend, I saw that I'd left it in Draft all this time, never having actually hit "Post." Oops...

Important reminder: more than three years after the city's purchase of property owned by him and his wife, Jessica, Comm. Anthony A. Sanders still refuses to publicly answer residents questions or explain what really happened and why the city was so eager to overpay for that property when they had no written plan in place for its future use.
Sanders clearly believes he can bluff his way thru to re-election in November.

Better late than never -and still 100% correct in his reasoning...

An Interesting Agency Independence from Ethics Enforcement Issue in Broward County
Mon, 2012-07-09 09:31


I've written about the issue of ethics commission jurisdiction over independent agencies and authorities, which arose in recent years in such places as Jacksonville, Louisville, and Palm Beach and Broward counties in Florida.

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. :-(
