THEY’RE MAD AS HELL

AND THEY WANT TO DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT

I am seldom surprised when it comes to politics in Miami, and when I am, its usually because one of the corrupt politicians I write about has managed to surpass my expectations for how stupid or corrupt they actually are.


Therefore I was truly caught by surprise on Saturday morning when I showed up at the downtown campus of Miami Dade College expecting to find 20-30 brave souls who had turned out for the “Candidate’s Academy” hosted by the United Faculty of Miami Dade College to discover that somewhere between 250-275 folks had shown up.


It was a standing-room crowd made up of folks who have become tired of the constant corruption and stupidity that passes for governance in this county, and who in one way or another want to do something to change it.


The academy, the brainchild of Mark Richard, a Miami Dade professor and a half-dozen other committed folks with brains and a desire to help a new generation of hopefully less corrupt, and smarter folks get elected to office, is a long overdue effort by anyone to spur folks to get involved and take back the cities and the county from what has become a corrupt, political class of career politicians, who consider public service either an opportunity to rape and plunder, or to settle in for a paycheck and a sizable, lifetime pension after too few years in office.


Folks got presentations from a half-dozen or so folks, who from my vantage point in the back of the room, got some good factual information about the nuts and bolts of running for public office, and those really interested were provided an opportunity to sign up for the full six month program.


If anyone reading this has any thoughts about running for public office, or even help someone else run for office then now is the time, and this program is the way to learn what it take to run a successful campaign.


Below is a copy of the application that you can download, fill in and send off to the folks at United Faculty Of  Miami Dade College, and below that is a PDF of the copy of the Candidates and Campaign Treasurer Handbook put out by the Florida Elections Commission that was provided to all who attended.


Truly folks, nothing is going to change without a group of concerned citizens who are Mad As Hell, And Won’t Take It Anymore, actually willing to stand up and fight!
