OVERTOWN OVERSIGHT BOARD
ARCHIVES2014_ARCHIVES.html

THIS COULD BE MOST POWERFUL CIVILIAN BOARD IN THE CITY BUT WILL IT SURVIVE IF IT STARTS ACTING LIKE THE MOST POWERFUL BOARD?

The Overtown Oversight Board met last night, for one of the few times since Keon Hardemon became City Commissioner. When Michelle Spence-Jones was the Commissioner she purposely did her best to disband the Board, and made sure that they never got in the way of her various schemes and deals.


At last night’s meeting the Board and guests heard a very detailed explanation of both the Board’s responsibilities and mandate, but also a very detailed explanation about the operation and responsibilities of CRA’s, and especially the SEOPW CRA and the way in which this agency gave away all the money to the Worldcenter developers last December.


The person delivering the explanations was Professor Frank Schnidman, from FAU, who is a nationally recognized expert on the creation and operation of CRA’s.


For those with the time and curiosity to learn what all of the complaints, allegations of misuse of funds, and general dickish Miami political behavior regarding the $88 million in Tax Increment Funds that the Miami City Commissioners acting in their capacity as the Board members of the SEOPW CRA gave away during that meeting that I and others have written about over the last couple months, you will find no better coherent and concise explanation of what took place then the professors‘ explanation.


And, as a bonus, Neil Shriver, the Assistant Executive Director of the SEOPW CRA - Clarence Woods, the Executive Director, and Commissioner Keon Hardemon seem to have decided that attending these community meetings is not a good thing for their image and reputation - managed in the process of trying to defend the actions that took place at the December 29th SEOPW CRA meeting, to reveal, and take credit for a devious, and clearly illegal effort to circumvent the US Civil Rights Act, by attempting to create racial set asides by Zip Code.


I do not shit you.  You can catch Neil telling you how proud he is of that bit of double dealing starting at minute 45:50 of the tape, when he talks about how brilliant the stratification process was  as a legal maneuver.


Appreciate that if this is how the folks at the SEOPW CRA, and of course the 5 Dwarfs on the Miami City Commission, believe that they can twist and turn the law for their benefit, and to openly brag about it, just what kind of shit do you think that they’re up to that they don’t want to brag about.


It’s Miami, Bitches!
