Bell to work at Flinn's fave eatery

Newly elected Miami-Dade Commissioner Lynda Bell will be working at a local restaurant next Thursday and hanging out with constituents in her district – at one of her November opponent's favorite places.

Bell announced her first “work day” at a District 8 small business (she plans to do this monthly in an effort to better understand economic issues) will be in Palmetto Bay, home to former village mayor Eugene Flinn, who lost the race for the seat vacated by Katy Sorenson.

But did she know that The Original Lots a Lox Deli, 14995 South Dixie Hwy., was one of Flinn's favorite village eateries? Apparently, he and his wife walk the 10 blocks or so from his home to the eatery several times a week and he has had meetings there with residents and tweeted last December that he was there getting his daughter Meredith a hot chocolate. Think they'll sit together and break bagels?

The commissioner’s press release says she will get there about 11:30 a.m. (some work day!) Thursday, March 31, but we bet she does not put in the full eight hours.

I have decided to moderate comments for a while as there are some that are simply off-subject and have become personal and offensive in nature, attacking not just me but others through this venue.

Comments that add substance and context to the news and issues in the blog will be posted. Comments that use profanity and abuse this open space to attack others will be saved and, when called for, sent to the appropriate authorities.
