DEAR CRESPOGRAM READERS


WITHOUT QUESTION THE STORY OF THE YEAR WAS THE CAMPAIGN FOR THE DISTRICT 2 COMMISSION SEAT, AND FOR ONCE, THINGS TURNED OUT FAR BETTER THAN MOST FOLKS EXPECTED WITH THE ELECTION OF KEN RUSSELL.


THE CAMPAIGN FOR DISTRICT 2 WAS MORE THAN A STORY, IT WAS A YEAR LONG SAGA AS THE SARNOFFS AND GRACE SOLARES ENDED UP WAGING THE POLITICAL VERSION OF A KNIFE FIGHT IN THE STREET WITH THEIR NEGATIVE CAMPAIGN FLIERS.  ALTHOUGH SEVERAL OF MY CAMPAIGN STORIES QUALIFIED TO BE AMONG MY TOP 25 STORIES OF THE YEAR, I HAVE INCLUDED ALL OF CAMPAIGN STORIES IN A SEPARATE ARCHIVE PAGE THAT CAN BE FOUND HERE.


I AM PLEASED THAT MY LAST STORY OF 2015 IS ABOUT THE FIRING OF “THE IDIOT OF THE CITY” ANGEL ZAYON.  FROM THE BEGINNING HE WAS A POSTER BOY FOR THE BLATANT CRONYISM THAT HAS DEFINED THE ADMINISTRATION OF TOMAS REGALADO. 


ZAYON CONTINUOUSLY ABUSED HIS POSITION, ANGERED MANY WHO CAME IN CONTACT WITH HIM, AND FINALLY HE GOT FIRED LAST WEEK.  BELOW IS MY STORY ABOUT WHAT LED TO THAT FIRING, INCLUDING ADDITIONAL DETAILS THAN THE MIAMI HERALD AND EL NUEVO HERALD DID NOT HAVE SPACE TO INCLUDE IN THEIR STORIES.


NEXT YEAR PROMISES TO BE A BANNER YEAR WITH NEW STORY IDEAS ALREADY PILING UP.  IN AN EFFORT TO BECOME MORE THAN A NICHE BLOG READ BY INSIDERS, I HOPE TO MAKE SOME CHANGES THAT WILL IMPROVE YOUR READING EXPERIENCE - THE NEW WHITE BACKGROUND/BLACK TYPE IS THE FIRST.  I ALSO PLAN TO REACH OUT TO A LARGER AUDIENCE AND  WITH THE HELP OF SEVERAL FOLKS A LOT SMARTER THAN ME, I HOPE TO IMPROVE MY COVERAGE OF POLICY ISSUES AND EXPAND THE POSSIBILITIES THAT TECHNOLOGY NOW OFFERS FOLKS LIKE ME.


IF YOU LIKE THIS BLOG AND APPRECIATE MY EFFORTS TO PROVIDE YOU WITH INFORMATION THAT YOU WON’T FIND ANYWHERE ELSE, THEN I WOULD ASK YOU TO HELP ME OUT BY TELLING YOUR FRIENDS, CO-WORKERS AND OTHERS ABOUT THIS BLOG AND ENCOURAGE THEM TO VISIT AND BOOKMARK THE SITE.


LASTLY, THIS BLOG WOULD NOT EXIST WERE IT NOT FOR ALL THE PEOPLE WHO OVER THE LAST FIVE YEARS HAVE CONSISTENTLY PROVIDED ME WITH THE INFORMATION AND TIPS THAT HAVE MADE MANY OF MY STORIES POSSIBLE. THERE ARE A LOT OF GOOD AND DECENT PEOPLE WHO WORK FOR THE CITY OF MIAMI AND WHO DESERVE NOT ONLY MY THANKS AND APPRECIATION, BUT ALSO THE THANKS AND APPRECIATION OF THE CITIZENS OF MIAMI.


ENJOY THE HOLIDAYS, AND SEE YOU IN 2016

DING DONG, THE DICK IS GONE

LAST FRIDAY, THE CITY MANAGER FIRED ANGEL ZAYON FOR THE 2ND TIME IN A MONTH. THIS TIME EVEN THE MAYOR COULDN’T SAVE HIM.   ZAYON CLAIMS THAT HIS FIRING WAS THE RESULT OF A SMEAR CAMPAIGN, AND THAT HE PLANS TO SUE.  GOOD LUCK ON THAT, BECAUSE THIS IS WHY HE GOT FIRED
