"Concerned about illicit money flowing into luxury real estate, the Treasury Department said Wednesday that it would begin identifying and tracking secret buyers of high-end properties.
 
The initiative will start in two of the nation’s major destinations for global wealth: Manhattan and Miami-Dade County. It will shine a light on the darkest corner of the real estate market: all-cash purchases made by shell companies that often shield purchasers’ identities."


Say one thing, do another. Talk truth and justice, walk the walk of a local government that is completely ethically impaired, dominated and controlled by special interests, and continuously betraying the trust of the people of Surfside and depriving them of honest government.

Looks like the town is selling out zoning, again. This time to allow multiple adjoining macmansions and the demolition and destruction of historic coral rock houses.

Surfside, Florida: The best little corrupt goverment that the developers could buy, having the public pay to expand pipes to accommodate bigger developments than the town had ever allowed in its history. Sellout town hall.

When a developer sought to buy units at the Surf House condominium in Surfside, the attorneys with Weiss Serota Helfman Cole & Bierman advised the condominium association and its board on how to attract better offers and the best way to structure unit sales.

At the same time that the same firm was continuing to represent the town?
 
Does the town's check register records show payments to this same firm at the same period of time?
 

2012 Election Sham Don't let it happen again?

The Daniel Dietch administration is attempting to preserve ownership of the Town of Surfside by diversion as shown in this change of the Town Charter.

Current town officials changed the rules: changed the system: setting short and  deadlines soon, so they can overcome any potential opposition by having no one know, no one ready, no one file, no one register, until it is too late and the corrupt regime "wins" by default due to a rigged system.
 
This was and is a conspiracy of all town officials including the mayor, commissioners, town manager, town attorney, town consultants, town preferred contractors, developers, developers' attorneys, and the whole inside crowd which corrupts Surfside and pounds its residents with the costs of a corrupt government that serves special interests and deceives town residents and taxpayers.


 
After reading the information within this blog, how can you accept what has taken place within the Town of Surfside, Florida for so many years?

 We believe in fighting the corruption at all levels and ask the public to join us. Attend meetings, speak up and be good citizens. You may get heckled as we have throughout the years but we know the Truth and it will prevail. They are a closely knit group of agitators that will stop at nothing to continue the deceptions put forth to the public.



How well do you know your Surfside candidates.

Has anyone checked with the Ethics Department of Miami Dade Government to see whether Daniel Dietch and, or others involved with the Town of Surfside, Ch2M Hill, or Calvin Geordano Associates, filed conflict of interest forms? We suggest not.
 
 
Why is all this happening in Surfside, Florida? "The Lubavitcher Rebbe, it sometimes seemed, commanded the largest Jewish "army" outside of Israel. His followers regarded him as their commander in chief and obeyed all his orders. Hasidim routinely would uproot their families and move to whatever city the Rebbe directed them"

Surfside Town Manager Michael P. Crotty,
Resigns suddenly after one year in this Highly Corrupt Surfside Government.
 \
According to Mayor Daniel Dietch: "a great town manager" but yet one "unable to provide the administrative leadership necessary". Obviously, he (Crotty) did not follow the Commission's heavy boot step doctrine allegedly laid down in early 2000 by Former President Richard Nixon's Dirty trickster  and former Surfside neighbor of both Charles Burkett and Howard Weinberg,..... Roger Stone.

Honorable hard working insiders tell us Michael Crotty was too honest a man for the Mayor and Commission and he initiated his own retirement to protect his integrity.

Surfside 2016 Surfside General Election. ... Office of Mayor Candidate. Eli Tourgeman [Ethics]. Office of Town Commission Candidates. Nothing compared to this:


   ELI TOURGEMAN (CRD# 2817342)

Candidate for Mayor of Surfside

Adds to his resume (prior ethics charges as Surfside Commissioner, abuse of position as officer of Kiwanis Club, abuse of position in putting town money into a bank where he worked to gain commissions on ‘new deposits’, steering of a town scholarship to members of his family) and now terminated by a bank for unethical misuse of bank email and other systems to solicit funds for his campaign and other violations of rules and ethics.

Mr. Tourgeman shown to be the height of deception, phony imaging, and misleading of town residents to gain another opportunity for him to serve himself rather than the public. Poor Surfside, look at its choices for mayor now.
