Norman Braman Endorses Mayor Loco Xavier Suarez?
|Norman Braman confuses us sometimes.|
Moreover, Suarez is the candidate of special interests. This past May 10, Suarez held a fundraiser whose hosts included Courtney Cunningham and Christopher Korge, two former lobbyists who got rich under Alex Penelas' mayoral regime, as well as Rosario Kennedy and Al Maloof, two prominent political arm twisters at Miami and County halls. Suarez's $117,000 campaign war chest is dominated with contributions from folks that do business with the county. The former Miami mayor is vying against ex-State Rep. Julio Robaina to replace Carlos Gimenez, who is running for county mayor.
If Braman doesn't want to lose credibility in his quest to reform county government, he shouldn't be telling people to vote for a retread who has sold out to the very people he rails against.
