Natacha Seijas Won't Be Giving Jean Monestime Any Affordable Housing Funds After All

Thumbnail image for Seijas-1.jpg
Natacha Seijas got some early retribution against Jean Monestime.
Twelve days ago, we reported how Miami-Dade County Commissioner Natacha Seijas offered Jean Monestime $750,000 in general obligation bond funds set aside for affordable housing in her district so her new colleague could use the money for his more needy constituents. The wicked witch of the northwest did so only after Monestime acquiesced to her request to delay taking $1.5 million away from a project being developed by Opa-Locka Mayor Myra Taylor. Turns out Seijas was full of manatee poo.

According to friendly sources at County Hall, Seijas would have to eliminate funding for projects in her district in order to keep her promise to Monestime.

But that's not gonna happen since Monestime was among Seijas' colleagues who voted to put her on the same recall ballot as Mayor Carlos Alvarez.

Our birdies tell us Seijas sent word to the county's capital improvement project that there was no way she would turn over the $750,000 to Monestime. It's not like Seijas didn't warn him. She did tell him and the other commissioners that their actions against her "could come back to you and haunt you one day."

We need to get rid of this crooked elephant. Enough is enough! The best way to do it is to start persecuting those big spenders who finance her, and the people like her, such as Sergio Pino! If we constantly wage war against these opportunists, who need people like Seijas, Alvarez, Jordan, Robaina (from Hialeah), and many others, so they can continue making money from busines they generate from their proteges, we could win this war!

Lets get the facts straight, Seijas should be out for revenge. she has been a model commissioner for her district and she has always delivered. Now on the other hand this writer Frank "do what bolanos says" Alvarado is a real piece of work, can't write anything positive about anyone. Let see if he ever writes about the corruption of Raul "bemmba" Martinez, Alex "porky" Morales, Rolando "Kiss ass" Bolanos, Danny "Rat" Bolanos and Rolly " bank robber" Bolanos. Frank what do they have on you. Grow up the big leagues.

What a horrible little troll. Revenge is a bitch, and when youre in public office probably illegal too. Golem needs to watch her step on the way out the door lest she finds herself doing the perp walk

She's been a model commissioner? Where the hell do you live, dude? Alaska? Or are you a member of one of the famous posses that support "la gorda ladrona"? Watch out about insulting Raulitio and her electorate... they are all birds of a feather, and they stick together, SCHMUCK!
