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, Europe 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.

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...
