Should A Convicted Ponzi Schemer Serve On A Planning & Zoning Board In The Miami Beach Area?

In this episode of the “Miami Reporters Roundtable Podcast With Peter Zalewski of Condo Vultures®,” a panel of four former and current journalists discuss whether an individual who was convicted of participating in a $1.2 billion Ponzi scheme should sit on the planning and zoning board in the barrier island city of Surfside in Miami-Dade County.

The discussion is based on this story from the Florida Bulldog: “Co-Conspirator In Billion-Dollar Rothstein Ponzi Is Now A City Official”
