Social Notes: The Vogels and the Lim Kreps Vacation Together

After an exhausting eight months in office, twin commissioners Connie and Eddie Lim Kreps are off to a little romantic getaway this week in Orlando. I believe I speak for all of us when I say that the North Bay Village taxpayers are happy to pay for their jaunt. After all, they have been putting in as much as four hours per month and only missed three meetings each. A nice rest will do them good.

The happy young couple fly off Wednesday at 10:45 AM. It's a working vacation though since Florida's largest gathering of lobbyists least influential professional group, The League of Cities, meets starting on Thursday at 1 PM. So getting there a full 24 hours before will have the twins nice and relaxed to attend the numerous events put on by private companies hoping to get their fair share of our tax dollars.

When asked if they were concerned about the public perception that taking a junket at this point when the city is broke and there is no movement on the budget, Connie Lim Kreps hissed and turned into a cat while Eddie talked about how the other commissioners are not that cool, really.

I hate to be the one to spoil the surprise but guess what? Dr. and Mrs. Vogel are also planning to go! Last week, the city cut checks for their registration and hotels, so I imagine they are feeling better. Just remember, Eddie and Connie, act surprised when you see them, okay? But not too surprised. You don't want to startle them.

Unfortunately, this means that the regular commission meeting is canceled tomorrow so the group can pack. But as Eddie Lim Kreps said, "It's not like we do anything anyway. That's why we gave the city to Bob Daniels." Local civic watchdog group, the CFD, put out a statement saying, "LOOK OVER THERE!!!! LOOK OVER THERE!!!!" and giggled in high pitched tones.

Bon voyage, commishes, and have fun in the happiest place on earth.
