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.

BetterBroward.org: Hallandale GOP Executive Committee endorses Csaba Kulin, Michele Lazarow and Gerald Dean in non-partisan Hallandale Beach City Commission races, rejecting Comm. Anthony A. Sanders and Bill Julian - "Sanders and Julian simply cause more problems than they solve and we deserve better."

This past week, all over town, the email inboxes of Hallandale Beach's most-concerned and well-informed residents and small-business owners received what I can only characterize as a most-welcome bolt out-of-the-blue regarding the upcoming city elections on November 6th, 16 short days from today.

I reproduce, below, that positive news about calls for increased financial accountability, increased scrutiny of public policy and increased use of transparency at Hallandale Beach City Hall -and recommendations for just who will make that a reality- courtesy of BetterBroward.org

I also remind you that you can always check the most current (and past) campaign financial reports of all mayoral and city commission candidates here:



       Three of the six candidates running for the non-partisan Hallandale Beach Commission have received unanimous "Vote For" recommendations from the  Hallandale GOP Executive Committee Members. Written GOP Voter's Guides are being delivered to all 4,500+ GOP voters in Hallandale. But we wanted to get this news out quickly for your consideration and benefit using Absentee and Early voting.

     Hallandale GOP Committee members recommend you cast your TWO VOTES from among these three candidates. You may only cast two votes, but are electing three Commissioners. Why, well in a most undemocratic "sleight of hand" after the election process had begun, Commissioner Lewy maneuvered an unpublicized procedure causing you to be electing three Commissioners by only two votes. The third-highest vote-getter will be elected to the third seat by default. Thus, it is critical in this election you vote for two candidates for commission irrespective of having in the past cast just one vote in a "Bullet Vote."

 The Hallandale GOP recommends you vote for two:
Candidate  Recommend for:
   Mr. Gerald Dean     N.W. Hallandale Conservative Activist "Palms Community Coalition, Inc." serving families in the NW section of Hallandale. Gerald opposes Sander's lack of service to the NW suburbs, all the while Sanders and his wife Jessica benefited personally from his commission seat.
eMail:  gerald-dean@att.net 
Phone:  (954) 610-0856
  Mr. Csaba Kulin     Eastside experienced businessman, HB condo President, Community conservative activist, and extremely knowledgeable of city government and Commission shenanigans with our CRA monies. Csaba Opposes Red Light Cameras. Csaba has received endorsement from The Hispanic Vote.org organization.
eMail:  Csaba@Kulin2012.com
Phone: 440-759-6696
 Ms. Michele Lazarow
     East side community activist, long time HB Business owner, champion for small government, opposes intrusive local government regulation imposed under the the incumbent Sanders, Lewy and past Commissioner Julian. Ms. Lazarow has received the Endorsement from the Hallandale Beach Fire Fighters.   
 The Local GOP leadership, your neighbors, are making these recommendations without regard to party affiliation but rather to achieve better Hallandale Beach Government. In fact  party affiliation has never been questioned in our consideration. 
  By Electing these three candidates to the Hallandale Beach Commission, We the PEOPLE stand a far better chance at getting a smaller, leaner lower cost city government without suffering loss of quality service. These are experienced business owners and community leaders who have evidenced a sincere desire to deliver good government for the people and put an end to cronyism.
  We similarly recommend not voting for Sanders, Julian or Henigson, who are the remaining Commission candidates. Sanders and Julian are not recommended as they are part of the long term problems at City Hall and have exhibited lack of judgmental integrity and in the case of Sanders who is under investigation by the Broward Inspector General for possible self-dealing and receiving unjust enrichment in office. They are both simply a problems that need to be left behind. These two candidates have left a legacy of haunting problems that have pervaded the Council Chambers and its time to move them to the history files of Hallandale Beach.  Sanders and Julian simply cause more problems than they solve and we deserve better

      Ms. Henigson, while we believe she is sincere, lacks the community credentials that could draw our support at this time.
      We urge you to consider these candidates carefully and cast your TWO votes from among the RECOMMENDED candidates


Your Hallandale GOP Leadership Team:
Mr. Gerald Williams Y001Ms. Gineen Bresso, Y005
Ms. Emma Bumsteyn Y003Dr. Sam Colton Y005
Mr. John Patchen Y003Paul Cooney Y007
Chad Lincoln Y014

NOTICE: you can still request an Absentee Ballot from the Broward Supervisor of Election up to October 31st.  You may make this request by Telephone, Mail or Online with the Supervisor's office.  BROWARD S.O.E.  (954) 357-7050

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

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 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. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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

"Faith is taking the first step even when you don't see the whole staircase." - Martin Luther King, Sept. 1962. #MLK I was a young kid living in #Memphis with my family that April night in 1968 when we returned home from a trip to #McDonalds and like so many nights before, I raced to the TV set in the living room to beat my two younger sisters to be the one who turned on the TV. As my parents walked in and settled down on the family couch, to see what was on TV, literally, within one minute, came the Breaking News that Dr. King had been shot elsewhere in the city. And the news only got worse as the night went on as news soon confirmed that Dr. King had died as a result of the assassination attempt, and soon there was widespread looting and violence in Memphis, the very things he had adamantly opposed. Eventually came the news that the city was under curfew, and sometime before midnight, because my family lived in a new-ish apt. complex that was on the same road as the nearby Armory, my parents and I and many of our neighbors watched in silence from the sidewalk/curb as tanks driven by members of the mobilized National Guard drove towards downtown Memphis, because the city's powers-that-be had decided that this would show the people who was boss. As my mother tells the story, one of my neighbors remarked on the irony of U.S. Army tanks being used to try to stop violence by Americans who were upset about the murder of a great man who had won the #NobelPeacePrize. It was the first time I remember ever hearing this strange word: #irony.

When you leave but bring the spare key because it is yours to keep.

2 0 1 7. I made new mistakes and old ones again. I learned things I didn't know and I things I had already learned the hard way but needed to repeat either way. I fell in love again and again, with the same man, and realized that is the way to do it. I stopped thinking life happened to me and started enjoying taking control of what tomorrow would entail. I wrote even when it hurt and I apologized even when they didn't. I almost gave up but woke up and stood up and spoke up and didn't budge and moved on and forgave myself for not always knowing what to do. I decided the most important thing is to be proud of who I become and to make sure she is someone to be proud of. All I truly have is the opportunity to be whoever I want to be, and knowing that is everything.
