Marc Sarnoff Has New Office Digs

Miami city Commissioner Marc Sarnoff is starting the new year with new office digs. As reported here previously, the Coconut Grove politician had been operating his law firm out of the townhouse he owns at 3000 Shipping Ave. until his enemies reported him to city code enforcers for allegedly running an illegal business from his home. Sarnoff received two notice of violations from the city last year. Well, the commissioner has relocated to 201 Biscayne Boulevard, an office tower in downtown Miami. But he is still skirting the ethical line, according to city hall gadfly and blogger Al Crespo.

On his blog, The Crespo-Gram Report, the acerbic watchdog chronicles his trip down to Sarnoff's new digs this past Monday. Crespo notes that Sarnoff is renting space from the law firm of Allen and Solowsky, which serves as an outside legal counsel for the Downtown Development Authority, where Sarnoff is chairman. Crespo claims Sarnoff sharing an office with Allen and Solowsky "raises a conflict of interest question about the chairman of the DDA board of directors now practicing law in the offices of the DDA's outside counsel."

Crespo also chides Sarnoff for hogging a special street parking spot in front of his new office building. The space, usually reserved for city officials on city business, now has a sign that reads: "Reserved: City Commissioner Only/Tow-Away."

"In short, he abuses the power of his office by parking in a space that should only be used on official business," Crespo wrote. Sarnoff could not immediately be reached for comment.

Please, New Times? No other paper or lawyer or anyone will help defend me from the KILLER COP actions of the Miami male Police. SARNOFF is in their pockets, of course. By the way, I never lie: I am the first gay friend Sarnoff made upon his move to Miami in the late eighties. Want a story? Read backwards from here, please? http://freewrights.freeforums....(Robert) Reid Welch 05 22 1954, COP AND "LAW" persecution victim

The is case law that say equal protection of the law under the constitution means that politicians and judges are not entitled to special parking spaces and all are to be treated equally except handicapped persons with a sticker, firetrucks on call and cops who are really on a call and not stopping for donuts.

So this putz gets a free street level parking space to use when he visits his private law office? And the space sits empty when this putz is away?

What an abuse of power
What an abuse of power

Let me get this straight? This elected official gets his own 24/7 free parking spot downtown next to his office and the public gets towed if they ever park there? So 99% of the time this spot sits empty?

Bad decisions

Don't forget Sarnoff voted for the Marlins bailout. That will cost the taxpayers over $3.5 Bil.

Sarnoff.What a creep. He takes a scarce downtown street level parking space for his personal 24/7 use?This the same guy who wants the 50 story billboards because billboard people dumped a ton of money into his campaign?

What kind of a comment could the illustrious Marc Sarnoff, "Commissioner", have other than "I am a two-faced liar, double-dealing cheat, back-stabbing thief, have no ethics, have abandoned all morals, and am in this for myself"? Oh, that would be honest so not forthcoming.

I apologize to Al Crespo, the last post shouldn't have been attributed to him.I am a huge fan of yours none the less.

I could see Regaldo Friday morning uttering those famous Miami words to himself or out loud directed at Marc DAVID Sarnoff, " Joo wanna play ruff? Ok, let's play ruff.....say ello to my lil' fren..." Then signing Willy Gort as the new head of commission therefore checkmating Marc DAVID. The great thing about this is that just like in the Godfather II when Frankie "5 Angels" took his shot at Don Corleone and missed, sooner or later you are going to get a visit from good old Tom Hagen telling you you're done...it's just a matter of how you choose to go out. Omar said it best in The Wire...."you come at the King, you best not miss..." Well you took your shot Marc DAVID and co., the problem is Kathy Rundle pulled a bait-n-switch. Politics 101 states you do what is best for you. Arresting a Cuban Mayor all but sinks all hopes she would have for elected office in this town. You don't need to have passed the class Sarnoff Ethics 212 to know that hermano. I give you this you snake in the grasses, the lengths you will go seem to have no bounds; ethically, morally and politically. There will come a day when us lunchpail 9 to 5 rank and files get to look you in the eye sir and throw your own words back directly in your face when we say, and I quote, " Oh yes sir you did know." Your parents raised you, and then you chose the path you are on. The only question left is what could you possible say to your maker when he asks you to judge your own life. Did you serve the people? or did you serve yourself and use that power the people gave for your own personal gain....Vengeance is mine says the Lord

This action culminates the alliance formed over the summer by now former City Manager Carlos Migoya, Chief Miguel Exposito, Police Major Al Alvarez, and City Commissioner Marc Sarnoff, who, it should come as no surprise, is expecting to be named interim Mayor id they can get Regalado arrested, and then suspended by newly sworn in Governor Rick Scott.

Marc Sarnoff is a pathological liar. He lies for no other reason than to lie.

Forget about the lies he told for years regarding his grandfather, this poor pathetic asshole has also told dozens of people that his lovely wife Theresa is the granddaughter of ex-US secretary of the Navy James Forrestal. ( and bragged that her "grandad" had an aircraft carrier named after him). The problem is that her maiden name is spelled differently than the legendary Admiral.

Hmmmmmm... I think I know what happened. Marc made an innocent mistake. Theresa's last name is actually Nimitz and her real grandfather, Admiral Nimitz, actually does have an aircraft carrier named after him.

Sounds plausible.

So now this scumbag crook thinks he's got it all figured out? He thinks he's going to be the interim mayor after he and his pals Exposito and Alvarez orchestrated this bogus coup to get rid of Regalado.What he doesn't realize Regalado saw this coming a mile away.

He's got a little insurance policy that I think he's about cash in.
