Joe Arriola Has a Beef With New Times Takedown of Manny Diaz's Book

Jan 16, 2013 Full story: Miami New Times 11

It appears Miami civic leader Joe Arriola wasn't too keen on how he's portrayed in my recent story about his former boss Manny Diaz's book, Miami Transformed: Rebuilding America One Neighborhood, One City At A Time .

In my opinion ,former Miami City Manager Joe Arriola and former Mayor Manny Daz are both piles of Cuban crap and only in this corrupt third world could either have held office.

"Arriola could have cared less that taxpayers did not have the opportunity to speak against the raise. "That's their problem," he said at the time."

"That's their problem" , you know it because that is what I have noticed is the normal Miami Cuban political attitude towards their loyal voters.

I would still take Arriola over commissioner Jose "Pepe' Diaz any day.

This describes you and your junta a a tee-

"The Cuban community that doesn’t care about corruption when it casts its vote was critically portrayed by most leading city columnists and others, Cuban and otherwise. Robert Steinback, a Black Miami Herald columnist, said the Cuban community is gullible. Liz Balmaseda calls it “a knee-jerk majority” that would elect a hamster wearing a Cuba Libre T-shirt, and,“They only cared that he was Cuban.”

I would have to quote the word scum as an understatement, the scum bag is much more, starting with he only wishes he was white and that only is the beginning.
