In a news conference, Acting mayor Philippe Bien-Aime said:

First about Lucie Tondreau...

"Today, the community and I are shocked and saddened by the indictment of one of our leaders, Lucie Tondreau, the first Black female Haitian-American mayor of the great city of North Miami..."

"We have the best justice system in the world. It's not up to me or to any citizen to conclude whether or not someone is innocent of should be convicted of any crime... Please let the system prevail..."

Second... About Business as usual...

"I have already instructed the city manager to take all necessary actions to make sure we conduct business as usual"

Third... Elections to replace Lucie Tondreau...

"My understanding... The city charter requires that the city hold a special election. The city clerk office is in contact with the Miami Dade County supervisor of Elections to schedule this election... I am the acting mayor until we have a duly elected mayor in office"

Acting mayor Philippe Bien-Aime went on to say that the law requires that a special election be held within 60 days.

So there you have it my friend... Lucie Tondreau is no longer the mayor of Miami, Philippe Bien-Aime is now the acting mayor...

What do you think about that?

I wash my hands for that, that's why God talk about gog and Magog, God in heaven call the nation to repent they don't listen to him how can somebody can do good thing if this person don't serve our Master who is Jesus-Christ?

You should know whoever worship Satan and the bad angels is slave, even thou Obbama, if he doesn't repent he will fall in his own hole, only one thing who make me happy, white people call black people fucking niger, but Obbama is everybody's boss, what is the point of saying that?

Dans cette triste situation, coupable ou pas ! Souhaitons qu'aucun concurrent surtout haïtien des dernières élections de North Miami, ne s'est donc engagé à ce vilain tournant que se trouve Mme Tondreau.

Duquel, nous nous sentons vivement
