Miami Madness Strikes Again: Carnival Center CEO Gets 42 percent Pay Raise
- Among other things, the man under estimated electrical expenses for the PAC's annual budget by basing air-conditioning costs on square feet instead of cubic feet which led it to beg for another $4 million from the county-- in the first seven months of opening its doors.
- He closed the PAC for the summer to save money since no shows were booked.
- Despite being on the job since 2002, Hardy only now is trying to figure out what Miami wants and what price it is willing to pay to see it. In other words, he's putting together a marketing survey more than a year after opening.
Any other "professional" would have been fired. Not here in "Bizzaro World" where everything is opposite of what you expect; where the "code" is "Us do opposite of all Earthly things! Us hate beauty! Us love ugliness! Is big crime to make anything perfect on Bizarro World."
As we have stated before to our two readers, Hardy has to go. As for PAC programming, again our solution for this unique community is: "Less Bach, More Batista".
UpDate (10/11): No Bonus For You! According to the Miami Herald, the trust that manages Carnival Center, "already 10 days late on a $1.5 million debt payment for construction costs, has decided against awarding" Hardy an annual bonus up to $57,000. And, Commissioner Javier Souto has scheduled a public discussion of Hardy's pay raise for October 16th. Regarding the 42 percent pay raise Hardy got, Souto said he would only raise him "50 cents so they can drink some coffee and wake up about how people feel about the PAC."
