BUT THEY HAPPENED TO FIND A LITTLE SOMETHING TO GIVE AWAY
THE CITY IS BROKE

Being broke is a relative thing.  When a City like Miami says that it’s broke and in debt, it doesn’t necessarily mean that it doesn’t have access to money that it can pass out to folks in need, especially in advance of an election where those folks in need can repay the favor by helping to get out the vote.


At this week’s City Commission meeting, the following Resolution will be coming up for a vote.

In the scheme of things, $190,500 is chump change, and given the poverty in the City, there is always a need for more money to alleviate the needs created by the current economic problems.


At the same time, this is Regaladoland, where little is as it seems, and where no good deed occurs unless there’s a string with a big knot attached to the good deed.


Below is the list of recipients. All of them are worthy, but it’s evident that some are a lot more worthy than others.

The 6 highlighted recipients - I’ve included the 4 donations to separate programs of Catholic Charities as one recipient - will be receiving $115,993.00 of the $190,500.00.


This group of 6 makes up 1/3 of the 20 named recipients, yet they are receiving 3/5 of all the money. In fact, chances are that with only a few exceptions, the bulk of the money is going into Little Havana/Allapattah and organizations largely serving the Hispanic community.


Now, I’m not blind to the problem of the need to feed poor folks, but Regalado has embraced the Republican arguments of self-reliance when it comes to reducing taxes and cutting wages and benefits for city employees, while turning a blind eye to all of the scams, schemes and double-deals undertaken by his cronies to plunder the city’s resources since he’s been Mayor.


Now on the eve of an important primary election, money suddenly becomes available to feed folks who make up the largest block of absentee ballots in the city. 


There’s nothing like priming the pump by passing out a little  taxpayer money as a way to create a sense of indebtedness, especially when poor, old people who are easily manipulated are involved.  


Like I said, this is Regaladoland, and Tomas Regalado has never  made much of a secret that in many ways he considers himself first and foremost to be the de-facto Mayor of Havana in Miami, and acts accordingly, including making sure that his people know how much he cares for them.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
