This is a continuation of the August 29 post “Winker? I Hardly Know ‘Er – Part Two of the David Winker Affair“, renamed The Miami Corruption Tapestry.
In that exciting episode I related:
What a difference a few days make. Another shoe has now dropped.
An ad hoc taxpayer group, an HOA, and the Coconut Grove Village Council spent cold hard cash to erect a billboard to SHAME the City of Miami into doing the right thing.
There are several ironies to observe here:
- The last private citizen to successfully fight City Hall was current District 2 Commissioner Ken Russell, long before he ever thought to run for office;
- Day Avenue is in Commissioner Russell’s district;
- Unless he takes the long way around, Ken Russell needs to drive past this billboard to get to City Hall.
