This morning I received an email with some sad news about energetic, longtime Hallandale Beach community activist, former COHB Director of Human Services and City Commission candidate Mary Washington from her family.
Mother passed away yesterday July 19th, 2016. She really enjoyed receiving and reading your blog and of course was a long time employee and activist with our City.
A problem that has been made worse by a largely absent and incurious South Florida press corps the past ten years, which was either afraid to report what was really taking place here and the logical consequences that one should expect as a result, despite how upfront and predictable it all was, or, they just couldn't be bothered to simply show up, observe and report what they saw and heard in a fair-minded fashion.
Despite everything she had been witness to over the years here, Mary remained an optimist.
