Muff Diving Mayor Of West Palm Beach


I normally try not to pay much attention to West Palm Beach Mayor Lois Frankel (in black above) since her upper lip has the strange motion of looking like an obscene gesture whenever she talks. I kid you not. Somehow, whenever she talks, Frankels upper lip looks like it is giving you the Finger. However, after reading this New Times ARTICLE, I am beginning to see that Frankel's obscene upper lip might be getting quite an after-hours workout with one Miss Joan Goldberg (above in white):

"...it's the whispering campaign that seems to grip West Palm Beach, even if no one dares ask Frankel directly: Is there something more to Joan Goldberg's meteoric rise to power in Frankel's administration and Frankel's leaving out a fraternization clause from her proposed ethics rules than simply a case of mutual admiration between the two women?"

What happened is that Mayor Frankel introduced an ethics code for city hiring policies that copied almost exactly the one in Tampa except for one very notable exclusion:

"the entire section on 'fraternization' in Tampa's code is absent from the copy Frankel circulated. In Tampa's code, that section forbids public officials from hiring a person with whom they have a 'close personal relationship,' defined by the code as 'dating, cohabitation, and/or having an intimate sexual relationship,' and it 'applies regardless of the sexual orientation of the employees involved.'"


It turns out that Mayor Frankel's "pal" was personally hired by her for a $70,000 part-time job as a "cultural affairs coordinator." Frankel, who has vacationed in the Berkshires with Goldberg has been criticized by a grand jury for the "pay for play" attitude of the city towards private developers who donate heavily to the campaigns of various city officials, especially the mayor. In the case of Goldberg, who has her fingers deep in city development despite her lack of expertise in this field, perhaps the best term would be "play for play."

I drop a comment each time I like a post on a blog or I have something
to add to the discussion. It is triggered by the passion communicated
in the post I read. And on this post "Muff Diving Mayor Of West Palm Beach".
I was actually excited enough to drop a thought :-P I actually
do have a couple of questions for you if it's allright. Is it simply me or do a few of
these responses look like they are left by brain dead individuals?
:-P And, if you are posting on additional places, I'd like to follow everything fresh you have
to post. Could you list the complete urls of all your social
sites like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin
profile?

There are no other wireless speaker this size that
supplies this type of sound quality. It measures close to
two inches deep and it is five inches by nine and a half
inches the face. The Bose Sound - Link Wireless Mobile Speaker
is a solidly built and well-designed speakers though it is a little
bit on the heavy side for portable speakers.

When researching a whole new laptop you've got a
slew of options to decide on from. Thunderbolt
port with native Mini Display - Port output plus support for
DVI, VGA, dual-link DVI, and HDMI (requires adapters,
sold separately). Check out information about streaming
Netflix in regards to the Wii for the Netflix Website here.
The most recommended laptops has dual-core processors or quad-core processors offering a lot more
than sufficient capacity to smoothly run different games and invite multitasking.

berry can also be frozen for a sorbet-like dessert. how to get free amazon gift cards While the Amazon Cloud Drive service
is clearly targeting home users, it's also a pretty good deal for small businesses ' especially those
who are leery of some of the other alternatives and
don't have huge data storage requirements. As compared with the original Kindle, Kindle 2 refreshes it's screen 20% faster.

3 The passion is immensely importantPassion is something that many
people receive from the therapy. The woman in the reception gives me a form to fill in. The main party bus limo components of SELF are
serenity, exercise, and a little further away, and not the price.

This couple seem wearily experienced with the form. And then when something goes wrong, it gets really tricky.
