I received an unconfirmed report that the Miami-Dade Commission on Ethics and Public Trust has fined North Miami Councilwoman Marie Steril the sum of $4,900.00. The Commission held a hearing this morning in connection with the accusation of “seeking preferential treatment for her mother” by insisting on “upgrades” worth “nearly $8,000.00,” as I reported earlier this year.
I’m told the Commission will issue a press release today regarding the outcome of this hearing. I will keep you posted.
