  1. To Aurelio–FPL is a joke. We lost power for 6 hours yesterday in whether so tame that my kids played outside yesterday. …To Villanelle, I too am voting for Ariel, but I see no threat of communism in coral gables regardless.

  2. If it would be for Ariel, we wouldnt have anything in common to discuss. Whether you all agree or not. Ariel keeps us focused on keeping Coral Gables Communist free. He gets my vote.

  3. Tropical storm conditions? Where? 😂😂😂
    Other than obsolete transformers blowing up in 20 mph winds. The only hardening FPL has done is to its profit making—its **** hardens every time it sends us a bill!
    Just another day in paradise for City Hall. No work today.

  4. Would Lago be able to fund Ariel’s blog if elected? How would Ariel find out anything going on if Lago can’t blind copy him on emails anymore? It would be a sunshine violation if Lago continued this practice.
