‘Cuz if I didn’t, I’d be camped outside Miami Lakes Town Hall at 9:00 AM waiting for the fireworks.
Y’all know by now that former-slash-suspended Miami Lakes Mayor Michael Pizzi was acquitted of corruption charges on Thursday, thanks to the cracker jack legal team of Ben Kuehne and Ed Shohat.
Governor Rick Scott, who suspended Pizzi after he was arrested, has refused to “reinstate Pizzi because the town already had a new mayor,” according to a Miami Herald article, Still-suspended Miami Lakes Mayor Pizzi: I’ll be at my town hall desk on Monday.
Despite the fact that he has not been officially reinstated, Pizzi had Big Ben write a letter to the Manager and Clerk of the Town of Miami Lakes informing them that he will be occupying the mayoral office come Monday morning.
Oh, and that he’ll need a secretary and “require re-issuance of appropriate access credentials.”
In other words, dude wants his parking space back.
What Pizzi claims he doesn’t need is the approval of the Governor.
Or the consent of the guy already sitting in the mayoral chair thanks to a special election held after Pizzi was suspended.
Michael Pizzi then put on his Wishful Thinking Cap and told the Herald, “There’s not going to be a wrestling match. I’m not going to be escorted out by police for trespassing. I’m not going to force them to throw me out of the building.”
So, like I said. If I didn’t have to go to work tomorrow, you know where I’d be.
@Gazi2a I wonder if any TV cameras will be there?
