LOBBYIST? WHAT LOBBYIST?
COMMISSIONER “ETHICS” SPENT SOME QUALITY TIME WITH VICTOR “BABY DADDY” DE YURRE ON A ZONING ISSUE AND “BABY DADDY” WASN’T REGISTERED AS A LOBBYIST, TSK, TSK

On October 24th, during the discussion of Planning and Zoning issue PZ6, Commissioner “Ethics” Sarnoff declared twice that he had spent time walking around the property in question with Victor “Baby Daddy” De Yurre.

PAGE LINK - COPY AND PASTE

Copy the link below, and it will be a permanent link to this page that you can post on Facebook, or anywhere else.

The property in question is a warehouse/nightclub called House.  The owners/developers of the club rolled into town in 2011 with grandiose plans for what many describe as a megaclub, and the October 24th Planning and Zoning meeting of the City Commission - replete with Ben Fernandez, a fancy lawyer  from Bercow Radell & Fernandez, and Victor De Yurre standing in the wings - was supposed to be the last step in the process leading to the opening of the club.


Things didn’t work out as planned. Shortly after the Commission meeting, Miami New Times did a story based on accusations by House’s principal owner Mark Lowe that Commissioner “Ethics” had screwed him and his partners.  Rather than rehash that story you can read it HERE.


This story is about “Baby Daddy,” who you can see in the photo above standing next to Francisco Garcia the Director of Planning and Zoning.


There are several problems related to that photo and “Baby Daddy” presence at this hearing. 


At the beginning of the hearing, Sarnoff made what was called a Jennings disclosure, that revealed vthat he had met with the parties involved before the this meeting to discuss their item.

The two admissions by Sarnoff in the videos above, along with this Jennings disclosure establish De Yurre involvement in support of this project.


Secondly, below is a copy of the City of Miami lobbyist list dated November 4, 2013.  If you scroll to the “D’s” you will see that Victor De Yurre is not listed as a registered lobbyist.

Lastly, Victor De Yurre is one of 5 Code Enforcement Special Masters, which justifies asking, “What the fuck, Victor?”

All of the above earns Victor De Yurre a bag full of coal and an  Ethics Complaint.

It’s Miami, Bitches!

Mr. Joseph Centorino

Executive Director

MIAMI-DADE COMMISSION ON ETHICS

19 W Flagler Street

Miami, FL


Dear Mr. Centorino:


This is an ethics complaint against Victor De Yurre for failing to register as a lobbyist with the City of Miami and his involvement with PZ6, a Planning and Zoning issue that came before the Miami City Commission on October 24, 2013.


During the commission's consideration of that item, Mr. Victor De Yurre, an attorney and former Miami city commissioner, who is currently a Code Enforcement master for the city prominently stood by Mr. Francisco Garcia, the city's director of planning and zoning who was seated at the end of the dais.


Twice during the commission's discussion of this item (at pages 113 and 122 of the attached copy of the city's official minutes of that meeting), Commissioner Marc Sarnoff disclosed that he had visited the building location in question with Mr. De Yurre, who was advocating for approval of the zoning application pending before the City Commission on October 24.


A review of the data from the Miami City Clerk's official website regarding lobbyist registrations Mr. De Yurre was not and is not registered to lobby Commissioner Sarnoff on any matter, including this zoning application.


I will wait with interest to see how the members of the Commission decide how to handle this.



Cordially,



Al Crespo
