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. Photo in upper-left is Hallandale Beach's iconic beachball-colored Water Tower on State Road A1A, September 2008; March 2018 photo below of North Beach, looking left-to-right, looking north, HYDE Condominium, Etaru Japanese Robatayaki restaurant, and Hollywood Beach in the distance, with umbrellas.

Last pre-Election Day Hallandale Beach Resident Forum meeting is tonight at 6 p.m. at The Village at Gulfstream Park -and it should be VERY lively!

Don't forget about tonight's Resident Forum meeting at 6 p.m. being hosted by Comm. Keith London, the last one before Election Day - THREE WEEKS FROM TODAY.
And over in plenty of time to get back home and watch the second presidential debate.

Like the last two meetings, it'll be held at The Village of Gulfstream Park in the retail space next to Krön Chocolatier, 1240 Silks Run, as all the pro-reform, pro-accountability candidates in Hallandale Beach -Csaba Kulin, Michele Lazarow and Gerald Dean- will likely be attending as well.


Why wouldn't they, after all, it's the one time every month where the best-informed and most- concerned residents and small business owners of Hallandale Beach can actually get together and speak freely about what's really going on in this city -or NOT and ought to be.

I'm just talking out loud here but maybe, just maybe, some of you folks at local South Florida TV stations who fairly regularly call me or send me emails, and who almost reflexively proclaim that you're definitely going to come by HB...
a.) "soon,"
b.) "sometime in the near-future,"
c.) "one of these days,"

might actually make it your business to do so, and stop making excuses for why you can't actually take advantage of an opportunity to observe and engage with the best-informed people of one South Florida community.
A community where many of the citizen taxpayers who regularly attend really ARE much better-informed than the city's elected leaders and highly-paid bureaucrats...

It was my experience in living and working in Washington, D.C. for 15 years and being involved in all sorts of corporate and philanthropic endeavors, and more specifically, being involved on both sides of the glass for dozens and dozens of focus groups, that you usually have to pay to get this many smart people together as a focus group to talk about matters and ideas that you want to know more about.
All this time, South Florida reporters, columnists, editors and anchors could've been getting it all for free.

Below, the email I received this morning...

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 now-closed 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 atop Mount Corcovado way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. To the right is the world famous beach of Ipanema and to the left is the equally famous beach of Copacabana. In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue in Rio looks like, up close, plus the Amazon area of Brazil that Esther grew up near in Manaus, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

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

A floresta Amazônica tem um papel fundamental no equilíbrio do clima na Terra e, portanto, na vida de cada um de nós. Nos últimos anos a proteção diminuiu e o desmatamento aumentou drasticamente. E o que já era ruim, pode ficar ainda pior. Se as medidas que o governo vem tomando não forem vetadas, nosso futuro estará ameaçado. Diga NÃO à diminuição da proteção da Floresta do Jamanxim! Diga NÃO à exploração de minério no coração da floresta! #TodosPelaAmazônia #342Amazonia #TodosPelaAmazonia Assine a petição: link na bio. ������✨���� The Amazon Rainforest plays a key role in balancing the climate on the Earth and therefore in each of our lives. In recent years, protection has decreased and deforestation has increased sharply. And what was already bad can get even worse. If the measures that the government has been taking are not vetoed, our future will be threatened. Say NO to the reduction of the Jamanxim Forest´s protection! Say NO to ore mining in the heart of the Forest! #togetherfortheAmazon
