KEYS TO THE BANK
IF IT AIN’T NAILED DOWN, COMMISSIONER “DATE RAPE” IS TRYING TO GIVE IT AWAY BEFORE SHE LEAVES

At the end of the day, after all the bullshit, all the high-fluting speeches, and all the phony promises of doing what’s right for the citizens, the Miami City Commission operates on just one principle, and that is a mutual pact between them of plunder: ‘If you let me screw the taxpayers, I’ll let you screw the taxpayers.’


It is this mutual pact between the 5 Dwarfs on the Commission that on Thursday, during a Special Meeting of the SEOPW CRA, will allow Commissioner Spence-Jones to continue looting the bank account of the SEOPW CRA to give away taxpayer money like a drunk who just won the lottery.


Here is the agenda of the meeting, and all the folks who she plans on giving a total of  $4,408,333.00 in “grants.”

Understand that a “grant” is nothing other than a gift. The recipient does not have to give a penny of that money back in any, shape or form.


Appreciate how open-ended the language is in the awarding of these “grants,” that they authorize “the Executive Director to execute all other amendments, extensions, modifications, and other necessary documents in order to implement the acceptance of and compliance with said grant money.”


No oversight other than that of the Executive Director.


Given that the Executive Director entrusted with this authority is Clarence Woods, who has previously demonstrated his willingness to screw the pooch and the pooch’s mother on more than once occasion, you know that he’s going to devote as much attention to protecting that money as Kim Kardashian did in protecting her virginity.  In fact if there is any CRA money ever spent on making another movie in Overtown, maybe that should be a plot line, a public official in Miami scheming to give away public money and trying to figure out how to do it so that he won’t have to worry about paying attention how it actually gets spent.


The absolute best part of this scheme however, is how Spence-Jones, who’s term ends in a matter of weeks is trying to pay forward, to the tune of $900,000, the financing of the Hospitality and Culinary Institute at the Ebenezer Church for the next 4 years.


She’s not going to be a City Commissioner after early December this year, and she’s already robbing whoever her replacement is of $900,000 of CRA money that by right’s should be his, or hers to spend.


Now, this isn’t a comment on whether the Hospitality and Culinary Institute is a good program or not, although given Spence-Jones’ history and her actions since she returned to the Commission, I think that a forensic audit of every program and every grant that the SEOPW CRA was involved in should be conducted during the years that Spence-Jones has been in office should be done by the State of Florida, but, allowing Spence Jones to get away with this sets an extraordinarily bad public policy precedent.


Allowing departing City Commissioners to start paying forward to fund programs that they won’t be around to administer leaves someone else holding the bag should something go wrong.


Unfortunately, good public policy is a foreign concept to the 5 Dwarfs on the Miami City Commission, so don’t expect any of them to express much concern over this latest scheme by Commissioner “Date Rape.”


Are you maybe beginning to see why that name fits her so well?


It’s Miami, Bitches!
