Re: Scott Robins & Lobbyist Registration Irregularities
Dear Sir:
I have discovered three lobbyist registration irregularities during my cursory research into the
affairs of prominent public figure Scott Robins:
Date:
Lobbyist:
Principal:
Issue:
Lobbied:
Violation:

13 September 2010
Scott Robins, Developer
Scott Robins Companies (SRC Properties LLC)
Sunset Harbour Parking Garage
City Commission
Failure to identify person(s) who hold 5% of more interest in principal

Date:
12 February 2012
Lobbyist:
Michael W. Larkin, Attorney
Principal:
Bay Road Partners, LLC
Issue:
Parking District for Sunset Harbour Neighborhood
Lobbied:
Undisclosed
Violation:
Failure to identify person(s) who hold 5% of more interest in principal. Failure to
disclose officials lobbied.

Date:
Lobbyist:
Principal:
Issue:
Lobbied:
Violation:

1 March 2013
Les P. Bellison, Architect
Espanola Way Associates Ltd.
Downsize hotel rooms at 405-419(b) Espanola Way
Board of Adjustment
Failure to identify person(s) who hold 5% of more interest in principal.

As you know, the failure to identify persons who hold a 5% or more interest in principals lobbied
for is a fundamental therefore most serious violation of Sec.2-482 (c) of the Miami Beach Code
of Ordinances. The Preamble of Enabling Ordinance 92-2777 clearly states the intention of the
legislation:

Page1of3

MIAMIMIRRORTRUEREFLECTIONS

WHEREAS, all citizens of the City of Miami Beach have the right to know how their elected
and appointed officials make decisions and carry out their functions in a manner that guarantees
all actions are taken in the best interests of the City; and WHEREAS, this right of the people to
know includes ascertaining the names of all parties having an interest in the outcome of a
legislative or administrative decision, and who meet with the elected or appointed officials
outside of the public's view; and WHEREAS, in order to continue to restore confidence in the
citizens of Miami Beach that the current Mayor and city Commission will undertake reforms of
past practices that sometimes left in doubt the fairness, openness and honesty of Government, the
Mayor and City Commission wish to pass into law measures to assure that special interests do
not obtain a greater voice in the decisions of the City than the voice an opinion held by any
individual. NOW THEREFORE BE IT ORDAINED.
Twenty-two years later we still have good reason, rooted in long experience with human nature,
to doubt the integrity of our government: it is likely to be unfair, closed, and dishonest if we fail
to question it and get the answers we need.
The following comes to mind in respect to the irregularities I noted above.
The downsizing of the rooms upstairs at 405 thru 419B Espanola Way, to increase the number of
rooms stated from 36 to 44, in order to gain revenue from an additional 8 rooms, was approved
by the Board of Adjustment, File No. 3622. The deed is done: it is too late to have the lobbyist
registration corrected so the public would know everyone who was involved. Curiously, the
county appraiser publishes the total number of rooms for the entire parcel, including the
Espanola Way Suites at 443 Espanola Way, which has another 12 units not counted for the
adjustment, as numbering only 24 units (Folio 02-3234-015-0010). Public access to Permit
Manager has been denied for nearly two weeks now, with no regrets expressed by IT, so I am
unable to ascertain whether the remodeling of the ancient suites, as evident in advertised
photographs, was permitted by the city.
Espanola Way Suites had its application for a certificate of use denied, yet it has been allowed to
operate continuously for nearly three years without a certificate of use or business tax receipt
license, yet the operator of the Sadigo hotel was arrested and had his tenants thrown onto the
street for not having the right kind of license for his hotel, allegedly in retaliation for previously
exposing the corruption of city officials. Mr. Robins was reportedly asked for some missing
engineering information on a change of use, and failed to provide it. Perhaps his secretary missed
the request, and, city officials, having the computer software to blame, forgot to follow up for
three years.
The same goes with the done deal with the city at Sunset HarbourI recall that the agreement
between Mr. Robins interests and the city prohibits the public/private relationship from being
called a partnership. The deed is done; the public is deprived of its right to know: it would be
inutile to cure the defective registration by filling in the blanks now. As you may know,

Commissioner Ed Tobin did reveal that he had a conflict of interest in the Tremont Towing
property on Bay Road because his firm represented Scott Robins Companies, also his campaign
fund contributor. The county ethics commission, after the investigator reduced the charges to
violating the cone of silence in respect to bidding, dismissed case C08-32 with a patronizing
letter instructing officials to seek its advice before doing things that might generate complaints.
It should not just be assumed that Scott Robins owns 100% of every entity lobbied for. It should
be sworn to under penalties of perjury. For all we know, Mr. Tobin or some other deciding
official may have owned either directly or indirectly an interest in the Robins firms that were
involved in the development of the Sunset Harbour neighborhood. As a matter of fact, Mr.
Robins, in a press report on the Sunset Harbour deal with the city, said that Philip Levine is my
partner in everything. (Miami Magazine, Astute Awakening, October 24, 2012)
All this is intended to illustrate the gravity of the disclosure requirement, and not suggest any
lack of integrity on the part of Mr. Tobin, for whom the commission waived an ethics
requirement so he could realize his lifelong dream of being a police officer.
I certainly do not question the personal integrity of contractor/developer Scott Robins, who is
publicly heralded as a foremost savior of South Beachs dilapidated historic structures, and
lauded as a most generous philanthropist, a virtuous and diplomatic gentleman of exceeding
integrity.
Nor do I question the integrity of the lawyer and the architect who lobbied for the sake of Mr.
Robins interests in business entities that shield him from personal liability.
No, the issue here is not Scott Robins et al, but due process of law, that the citys officials,
including city clerks, should be most diligent in seeing that everyone, even Scott Robins and his
architects and lawyers, comply with the ordinance, which provides, in part, that the city clerk
may report violations to the county ethics commission for investigation and prosecution.
I do question the integrity of the city government in hopes that my questions will help integrate
the words of its legislation with its deeds. To that end I thank you for your excellent service, and
wish you a Happy Thanksgiving,
Very truly yours,
David Arthur Walters
