IT’S GONNA BE MY WAY, BITCHES!

TO DEPRIVE COMMISSIONERS SUAREZ AND CAROLLO OF THE OPPORTUNITY TO USE THE CHAIRMANSHIP OF THE COMMISSION AS A TOOL IN WHAT WILL BECOME THEIR CAMPAIGN AGAINST HIS DAUGHTER FOR MAYOR, TOMAS REGALADO APPOINTED KEON HARDEMON AS THIS YEAR’S COMMISSION CHAIRMAN, AND NOW, BEFORE HIS FIRST MEETING, HARDEMON HAS TURNED AROUND AND BITCH SLAPPED HIM AND HIS FELLOW COMMISSIONERS

Let’s get one thing out of the way right off the bat.  Raquel Regalado is not going to win any election against Carlos Gimenez.  Hate Gimenez all you want, but Raquelita, who’s been riding her one trick pony of looking for media opportunities to position herself as some sort of populist champion, is for all intents and purposes a lightweight that can’t raise the money, nor gather the kind of support she needs to wage a real county-wide race. 


But that’s a topic for another day.


Today’s topic is how her Daddy decided that one way to help Raquelita in what even he believes will be her effort to replace him as Mayor was that instead of appointing Francis Suarez or Frank Carollo as the Chairman of the Commission this year he would appoint Keon Hardemon.  Willie Gort has been Chairman for the last two years and Ken Russell has only been a member of the Commission for one meeting, so it wasn’t that Regalado had that many other options if he was to deprive Suarez or Carollo from taking advantage of the perks of being Chairman.


On Wednesday afternoon, the day before he chairs his first Commission meeting, Hardemon sent out a detailed memo as to how he intends to run the meetings while he is Chairman, and I’ve been told he did it without bothering to have any conversations with his fellow board members or even the Mayor and the City Manager about some of the more controversial rules he has created.


In short, he sent out the memo as a fate accompli that again, I’ve been told pissed the Mayor off, and will not doubt lead to bad blood between him and his fellow Commissioners.


Hardemon has previously demonstrated a proclivity for being somewhat of a petty dictator as the Chairman of the SEOPW CRA. but because it was his CRA, and few of the items impacted them or their district directly, his fellow Commissioners tended to cut him some slack.


It will be interesting to watch however as the other Commissioners start chafing under the restrictions that Hardemon has placed on Time Certain Items, and on Discussion Items, and his demands that in order for some items that the administration would want to put on the agenda, they will have to receive his prior approval.


Hardemon is not half as smart as he thinks he is, and during his time on the Commission he had not demonstrated much in the way of collegiality with some of his fellow Commissioners, which makes me predict that  after managing to rid themselves of bullying and nasty tactics of Marc Sarnoff, there will not be much tolerance by any of the Commissioners nor the administration for a lightweight bully to think he’s going to run things his way.


In a bureaucratic world, he who control the paperwork controls the game, and it looks like the Commissioner has visions of being  a petty dictator.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
