Arson attack of Mayor Pizzi’s law office … by gimleteye

More on arson attack of Mayor Pizzi’s law office … by gimleteye

Yes, it is a real Miami mystery. The Herald reports that among the missing files in law office of the mayor of Miami Lakes; paperwork in a lawsuit against the county for rules on recall elections “imposed about three years ago that make it harder to bring forward voter ballot initiatives such as recalls.” (Mayor’soffice hit by arson attack, October 22, 2009). Pizzi was a leader in the effort to recall county commissioner Natacha Seijas that failed when a tidal wave of special interest money came to her defense.

The best public record of that citizen’s recall effort, the de facto chair of the county commission from Hialeah, is here on Eyeonmiami. (see our archive, under “Seijas”. No subscription necessary.). Pizzi, through the Seijas recall and other efforts– (on behalf of homeowners whose properties had been damaged by rock mine explosions in West Dade) — decided to run for public office and won. In this respect, he is one of a kind in Miami-Dade: smart, voluble, and committed to better government. He represented citizen intervenors, for example, in the case against moving the Urban Development Boundary in the Lowe’s application; a zoning change approved by the unreformable majority of the county commission and rejected by the state of Florida and which the county continues to litigate.

The attack on Pizzi’s law office left easily detectable traces of fuel. It looks amateurish and bizarre. It is not in the nature of the immoveable status quo to burn down a law office and attract the attention of federal law enforcement. In normal times, everything goes better when things are quiet and money works its magic behind the scenes. On the other hand, these are not normal times. Who needs this kind of attention?
