Thanks to Jorge Gonzalez, Miami Beach Is Now Dade's Most Corrupt Town

Jorge Gonzalez's time is up

On a muggy autumn afternoon, 400 of Miami Beach's most prominent names packed into a luxury Loews Hotel ballroom. As waiters hoisted trays of food, WSVN's Belkys Nerey took the stage and introduced a big-screen video. With a cinematic splash and to copious applause, billionaire Norman Braman, Miami Beach Mayor Matti Herrera Bower, and former commissioners Saul Gross and Victor Diaz lavished praise on the man of the hour: City Manager Jorge Gonzalez.

The date was October 21, 2010. It was the tenth anniversary of Gonzalez's reign. The back-slapping party marked the delirious high point of the slight, gray-haired manager's $273,000-per-year tenure. The low point came last week, when he stepped down in disgrace. The past 18 months have seen the Beach, Dade's glitziest locale, become its most corrupt.

Among Gonzalez's dubious achievements:

• His pick to head the troubled Building Department was canned after admitting to double-billing taxpayers for more than $154,000.

• His cops have been charged with harassing gays, shooting innocent bystanders, drunken joyriding that nearly killed a beachgoer, and drinking on the job.

• Prosecutors probed whether he extorted thousands of dollars in free tickets from the New World Symphony.

• His procurement director resigned over ties to a felonious developer and accusations of ethics breaches in a convention center renovation project.

• The FBI busted five of his code compliance officers and a firefighter for accepting bribes from clubs, and another firefighter for helping to arrange cocaine shipments.

One question remains: What the hell happened?

Interviews with insiders and commissioners paint a picture of a sordid free fall as scandals bedeviled nearly every department. Gonzalez, who was paid more than the vice president of the United States and will draw a six-figure pension after he leaves office July 8, fostered the problems by creating a culture of fear in a hierarchy with few checks and balances.

"I was not given information, I was lied to, and I was misled regularly," Commissioner Ed Tobin says. "The system has some flaws, but this was all on Jorge."

I feel sorry for Jorge Gonzales, what all he did was to follow and sometimes cover the calamities of the Commissioners or Mayor on duty, corruption in Miami Beach begins and ends with their elected officials who have always favored his friend’s in exchange political favors.

 For over 20 years I have been fighting political corruption in Miami Beach finally the law take responsibility, in no doubt the most corrupt city in Florida.

It is 9:57 p.m. on Castle Hill, east Bank of the San River in Przemysl, Podkarpackie, Poland on a Sunday before my cousin Patrick's First Communion and I am in a rush to dress, but I remember SO WELL when an HONEST inspector found after Adonis Garcia was complaining about a neighbor that he HAD ILLEGALLY WITHOUT PLANS, PERMITS, or A SHRED OF LEGALITY did A FORTUNE IN WORK TO ONE or TWO APARTMENTS COMBINED INTO ONE, and "his friends" JORGE GONZALEZ and MATTI BOWER LEANED ON CODE AND BUILDINGS and the local MIAMI HERALD REPORTER to shut up about it!!!!! I WONDER HOW MANY PEOPLE WHO STAND IN LIE FOR MONTHS TO GET PERMITS ON THE BEACH REMEMBER THIS OUTRAGE BY JORGE GONZALEZ, MATTI BOWER, ADONIS GARCIA AND THE MIAMI HERALD! Oh, yes, people wondered HOW A YOUNG FIREMAN HAD ENOUGH MONEY TO DO ALL THE EXPENSIVE WORK!!!!!

Two weeks ago, Mayor Bower-Herrera confronted the protesters outside City Hall by getting into their face and poking her finger into their chests yelling "Vote us out". "Vote us out" Some citizens have decided to take her at her own words and have created an official petition form for a recall. Even though she only has a year and 5 months on her term, that's too long. Coming soon on YouTube. Look for it.

Dear Polimb, To be absolutely clear l). I moved from Miami-Dade County in 2004, 2). during my 11 years on the Beach I NEVER MET A BLACK DRUG DEALER or CAR THIEF, the Drug Dealers were ALL HISPANIC plus one White Guy and the Car Thieves were usually sons of the State Attorney, Katherine Ferandez Rundle who is Anglo or Hispanic depending on the area she is looking for votes in. It is NOT BLACK CRIME that is the problem on Miami Beach BUT ONLY WEEKEND and SPECIAL EVENT "disorderly conduct" and auto accidents, but those are usually multi-millionaire sportsmen, who come in all races. Of course if you want to be technical PUBLIC EMPLOYEES ON MIAMI BEACH probably have a higher percentage of crimes that poor people in Liberty City or Overtown, but I can only say that because I am in  Europe, if I would say that on Miami Beach no doubt the Police would arrest me for walking too fast on the sidewalk.

Beach cops shot 100 rounds at a "visitor" last Memorial Day Weekend, is this freakin rag that far out of its collective mind, what an assinine thing to write.  Oh yeah, don't forget the Police were targetting blacks that weekend too.  Again you assholes, have you checked out the make up of the population on that weekend.  If your population is 95% one or the other and you arrest or have "incidents" with some of those 95%, then you aren't targetting, ass clown.  If you on the other hand have multiple "incidents" with the 5% that would be targetting.  Isn't that what all you lib idiots have always claimed when the poor minorities went to jail.  Geez, make up your minds, whats left of them, you can't have it oth ways.  Good luck and be carefully this Memorial Day Weekend, my brothers and sisters.

I thank the spirits everyday that I was able to escape the city of my birth. Believe me when I say that it used to be a great city. A Cuban Lady once said to me" We Cubans made Miami what it is today"  she was right. It is a S h   hole. Now one by one all of the last remaining remnants we loved are going, Jimbo's being the latest victim. Poor Miami, poor poor Miami.Adios...

'City Manager' is a horrendous form of government.  They are universally overpaid, are not elected by the residents, are guaranteed a windfall retirement after their 8 or 10 or 15 years of 'work' is done and they unilaterally weild the most power in town.

No severance!
No severance!

Since Jorge Gonzalez resigned voluntarily he should NOT be entitled to any severance pay. But the intellectually weak City Attorney Jose Smith might screw the taxpayers and side with the corrupt Gonzalez.

Hey "T:", do weird things? Look on the internet, since 2004 I have restructed two German private banks, authored four studies of pre-Holocaust Jewish Communities in German-speaking lands and collected, classified, and donated a collection each of Roman artefacts and banking documents from the 18th century to 1938. Weird? I sit on the boards of six firms in Europe, all of which I have an interest in. "Weird", you mean I don't sit on my ass and live off a). rents from my father or grand';s properties, b). profits from extorting  money from businesses on Miami Beach, c). profits from overpriced developments created by bribing Miami Beach City officials sold to unsuspecting foreigners, d). live off a pension or salary for doing nothing like Frank Delvecchio and his band of morons? Weird? ITS WEIRD TO LIVE ON MIAMI BEACH WITH DRUGS ALL OVER, THUGS RULING THE STREETS ON WEEKENDS AND HOLIDAYS, AND A GOVERNMENT THAT RUNS ON BLACKMAIL, EXTORTION, CHARACTER ASSASINATION (you do weird things, i.e. restructure banks in Europe and collect art), LIBEL, SLANDER, and BRIBES!!!! "T: you complain like Frank Delvecchio, but you are as useless as he is to get anything done RIGHT or ON TIME or ON BUDGET!

People might have known little Jorge Gonzalez had a massive pay and pension package but when did the taxpayers get to vote on it? No taxpayers would have voted to allow Gonzalez to become a multi-millionaire AT THEIR EXPENSE. Citizens are just starting to catch on how much public sector employees are overpaid.

 Dear Mr, Miss, or Mrs. Mylar,

Michael Gongora is NOT BETTER than Jerry, who sold his sole for public money for his job at the Miami Beach Chamber of Commerce or Matti Bower who sold his sole for her faked pensions and contracts for her daughter. Michael Gongora pushs money for unemployeables to have jobs with non profits funded by the City so that they will support him. do you think that is different from Matti, Jerry, or what Ed Tobin has done in the past, or Nancy Liebman or Susan Gottfried or Saul Gross??? I remember one meeting about a non profit contract, Jerry Libbin, before he was a Commissioner, Richard Steinberg and Jose Smith with Commissioners on the committee, and Matti Bower was chairing. I asked a question about the funding of a FOR PROFIT sponsored by a NON PROFIT to hide the fact the City was giving Claire Tomlin"s FOR PROFIT illegal city permits to close streets and have HER FOR PROFIT RENT THE PUBLIC SPACE with NO PART OF THE MONEY GOING TO THE PUBLIC, BUT T HE PUBLIC WAS PAYING FOR EXTRA ELECTRICTY AND POLICE! Libbin, then head of a non profit board, and Commissioners Steinberg and Smith, BOTH ALSO MEMBERS OF THAT NON PROFIT BOARD, looked at me as I was from out space. THE PERMITS WERE FOR Claire Tomlin and the non profit! NO SO! I showed the contracts and how the FOR PROFIT Claire tomlin ran, the The Market Company, was "cleaning up" while the non profit may" have gotten l% to 2% of the profits, the city NOTHING! There was to be a meeting about these contracts the next month, and the minutes of the meetijng published.WELL, YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED! The Minutes were NEVER PUBLISHED because Jorge Gonzalez overruled Matti Bower (according to Matti Bower), I was followed around by Claire Tomlin's employee Michael Vita with a camera everything I spoke to a Commissioner or employee about the contracts, and, yes the next month"s meeting Nancy Liebman "took over the meeting" sceaming and carrying on what a GREAT WOMAN CLAIRE WAS (her campaign scheduler by the way) and how I was TERRIBLE for bringing the subject up! Steinberg, Smith, and Bower, who voted to investigate at the meeting the month before SAT STONE FACED AND SILENT AS NANCY LIEBMAN WENT ON AND ON!!!! And that was 3 years before the infamous "trespasses"/.

Dear citizens of the little city that I loveQuit bitching about his salary and pension.  Don't pretend to be a concerned citizen now, it was all a matter of public record before.  If you cared that much you would've known already.  Still have a tough time seeing how everything is now his fault, but  at least City finances aren't screwed up.   Lucky him only has one more Memorial Day Weekend to worry about.  Register and actually vote and actually go to council meetings or somehow get involved, then I'll have an easier time listening to your headline induced complaints

Bribes much?

The manager has himself to blame. He recently made a statement asking employees to come to him if they witnessed wrongdoing. Well I speak from first-hand experience that when I witnessed strange goings on I was told to be quiet or get fired. Why the audit department told me I would probably be fired for coming forward with my information. My superiors wrote me an email that we can't be critical of the administration. Mr. Ex-Manager is in this mess BECAUSE his door was closed and his rank-and-file employees all feared retaliation. Long ago if Mr. Gonzalez had an open door, guaranteed no retaliation and hired an Inspector General, then none of this would have happened. After the building department scandal in 2006 should have been the right time. I recall suggesting that as well. So the Ex Manager didn't want an open door. The Ex Manager didn't want an independent Inspector General, the Ex-Manager didn't want to give the Ethics Commission jurisdiction, the Ex-Manager didn't want to give employees Whistle-blower protections and the Ex-Manager didn't listen to his Assistant Manager when I wrote about shenanigans in the building and fire prevention departments . So now the Ex-Manager got Ex'd. Mr. Ex you can't say you weren't warned

Dear Mr. Elfrink, I am not a criticizing your fine article, but it leaves out that Jorge Gonzalez was not a "wonderkind" did NOT have anything to do with the growth of tourism or the new mega hotels, most of which went into bankruptcy, and you did not, as this paper did not in March and August 2005 cover my (named a Gadfly of the year by THIS PAPER) probition thru trespasses in March and August 2005 from entering Miami Beach City Hall to testify at Public Hearings and Public Meetings because Mayor David Dermer was mad I video taped his staff not being at their desks or Jorge Gonzalez"s during office hours and Dermer;s campaign manager Kent Harrison Robbins was illegally lobbying Assistant City Manager Bob Middaugh. The trespasses, and "wanted posters put up at the door of Jorge Gonzalez 's reception room" could only be fought with a 30,000 dollars in cash deposit with the civil rights lawyer and a tab of up to 73,000 dollars over three years I was told. Since my investments are in Germany, and I have a home in another part of my native florida I did nothing. But that does not change the fact that two current commissioners brought up this trespass and its illegal basis to the current commission and Mayor Bower and City Manager Gonzalez told one of the two Commissioners concerned to stop talking about it. Of course from 2005 to 2007 I, good soldier I am, continued to meet with, yes, Jorge Gonzalez's staff giving them documentation about corruption in City Hall that they and Joe Centorino sat on until the Stern Case became public knowledge 4 years LATER. I am happy collecting art in Europe and North America, it is not me who had five, 9 years of corruption and cost overruns while Jorge Gonzalez, Murray Dubbin, Don Delucca, Jose Smith, Matti Bower, robbed the place blind. I can truly say in the 6 or 7 places I have investments and spend time, there are no crooks like the ones neither the Miami Herald or this paper would go after from 2005 until now.

The notion that the Commissioners, without hearing the citizens of Miami Beach, cut a 2 month deal with City Manager Jorge Gonzales, is the definition of insanity.  There must be so much scrutiny on his actions now that its pointless and further, his empowerments need to be modified to nothing, lest the Commissioners get sued for the most stupid move ever.

While Jorge Gonzales certainly has deserved for more than 7 years to be fired for cause with zero golden parachutes, one of the things that irks me about this is the whole issue about the numb pin headed commissioners who are hiding behind Jorge, as though this was a one man corruption scheme.  I am not a Jorge fan at all, but the Commissioners are culpable and the Mayor in a big way. Mattie Bower should resign as should Ed and all of them except perhaps Johanas, who had the gumption to try to do something about this and stake his reputation on it. Lastly, I am insulted by the poor work of our fair City of Miami Beach City Attorney who clearly was party to these absurd golden parachutes and has been operating in an environment that is clearly unsavory and unlawful in so many ways. He needs to be canned or step aside. The Commission needs to start listening to the community allot more, instead of generating bogus surveys and putting out propaganda about how happy people are.  The City's Chief of Police needs to be appointed or elected in, but a new one installed.  No more dicatorships, no more police brutality on the local citizens, no more billy batting gays in the park, no more joy rides by police, and no more corruption by building and zoning and even the Parking Authority needs to be changed out.   The process by which City of MB Government works needs a strong Mayor to both cleanse it and make changes to the method of governance and structure.

Whoever raised Polimb left out English, good manners, and the ability to think clearly. When I assume Polimb wants to say is that the Miami Beach Police Department has a record and current attitude of disrespect for African Americans and that the shooting of 100 rounds into a person is overkill that he believes rising to criminality. These are valid points, but he ignores what any decent person experiences where low class people, usually Blacks, come into a decent neighborhood like South Beach was trying to be after the influx of Cuban refugees with criminal, mental, educational problems. Just as South Beach was renovating buildings and building up middle class and working class rental housing, young Blacks, encouraged by the multi-culturalist at the Miami Herald overwhelmed police, stole things in shops on Washington Avenue, urinated in private lawns on 15th Street and Drexel Avenue, trashed the beach furniture at the Fontainelbeau and Loew's, caused traffic jams but just stopping their cars on 15th Street and Lincoln road to get out and shop to talk to people. The meetings at Miami Beach City Hall were a disaster when Louis Oliver turned up with what anyone would call a bunch of thugs for a committee meeting of the Miami Beach City Commission.

It's true, Blacks are discriminated against. It's true they are looked down on on Miami Beach, but what do you expect (though not criminal violations by law enforcement of course) when young Blacks act like thugs, worse than hooligans?

"City Manager" form of government was created by REFORMERS from the REPUBLICAN PARTY at the end of the 19th and early 20th century to get CORRUPTION OUT OF GOVERNMENT. Under Florida State Law the Mayor and Commissoners or Councilmen under the City Manager form of government only set policy and wages and approve some hirings including the City Manager and City Attorney. HOWEVER once hired the City  Manager and City Attorney are only to be given instructions or guidance in publicly advertised meetings whose agendas are regulated to these two areas with limited exceptions. Moreover in Florida no two public officials involved in this process can meet except at publicly advertised public meetings except for private meetings on legal issues where after the legal issue is settled, must have their minutes, like all such meeting minutes, publicly disclosed. The problem on Miami Beach and the rest of Miami -Dade County, and sometimes Broward or Palm Beach is that the State Attorney, an elected official by the VOTERS in each County do NOT enforce any of these STATE LAWs. The Miami-Dade County State Attorney has two sons who have records of criminal behavior and she is more concerned with covering up his sons' crimminal activity then protecting the citizens of the county. Moreover since Janet Reno, the Miami-Dade, then the Miami County State Attorney's Office has been the favoured retirement like the various City Attorney Offices of failed, lazy, and corrupt lawyers, not the agressive, bright, hard working young people you  usually find in District Attorney offices throughout the country. going back to "Watergate" the State Attorney for Miami, now Miami-Dade County has been a national disgrace, laughing stock, and wart on the nose of Florida. But then, why do the public re-elect the same clown time after time?

Jose Smith's law practice was failing so he got then Commissioners Saul Gross, who uses his position on the successor of the GO Bond Committee to renovate streets where he has real estate thanks to Matti Bower's laziness, and Richard Steinberg, no comment there is necessary at an illegal meeting at David's Cafe II which violated the Sunshire Law Joe Centorino refused to enforce. Jose Smith was made City Attorney when I was out of the country because I would have reminded the Commissioners who voted to make him City Attorney including Matti Bower and Simon Cruz, as well as Saul Gross, how they said not only would they never do it, but IT WOULD BE ILLEGAL! Nice how once I was off the scene illegalities flourished on the Beach!

Dear Mr. T, For 10 years instead of managing my investments I went to City Hall, went to committee meetings, read city reports, started a newspaper so that the citizens could get the Agendas, then not on the internet before meetings, MY THANKS? Jorge Gonzalez, Police Chief Don Delucca and City Attorney Murray Dubbin issued two "trespass notices" to me (once while on a date picking up a girlfriend a mile from city hall) forbidding me to go to City Hall for meetings or hearings or I would be arrested! As long as the Police and City Attorney's office are POLITICAL AGENTS of the CITY MANAGER or MAYOR or this or that COMMISSIONER YOU CANNOT HAVE FREEDOM ON MIAMI BEACH. Did you see the crowd calling for Jorge Gonzalez's outster? Frank Delvecchio sits behinds anyone who talks intelligently on development issues because he and his attorney lobbyist Kent Harrison Robins extort money from developers. David Kelsey co chair with Mike Burke of the Tuesday Morning Breakfast Club on camera screaming at Matti extorts money from bars, restaurants and nightclubs saying with his "connections" to former Mayor David Dermer he can "help them" in City Hall. Maybe Jorge Esposito, Jonah Wolfson, and Deede Weithorn are "clean", but Ed Tobin, who got schmucks hired by the City? Matti and Jerry everyone knows about. Michael Gongora doesn't lobby to get friends city funding for non useful jobs and project?

The neon green shirts were paid by the union for the Fire-fighters. 80 percent of people wearing them were MB fire-fighters masquerading as residents and a few old ladies from Rebecca Tower who had no idea why they were there when asked by a reporter. This was a show of support orchestrated by Jorge Gonzalez, Matti Bower-Herrera, Ramiro Inguanzo, HR Director and Adonis Garcia, the union president of Fire-Fighters who happens to be Matti Bower-Herrera's unofficial chauffeur as well. Also the same guy who negotiated himself a double promotion from Fire-fighter II to Lieutenant and than from Lieutenant to Captain in October 2012 with the help of the same people named above. What do all these people have in common?
