Rudy Crew Speaks, if the Price is Right
Rudy Crew is in elite company these days. Miami-Dade Public Schools’ superintendent is being represented by the Creative Artists Agency, one of Hollywood’s talent firms, to find him speaking engagements. Crew is listed on the agency’s online speaker roster.
CAA represents some of the world’s most famous celebrities, including hip-hop mogul Russell Simmons, professional boxer Oscar de la Hoya, award winning actors Morgan Freeman and Sidney Poiter, and American Idol creator Simon Cowell. Crew is also shilling his speaking engagements here and here.
The entertainment industry might be the perfect career move for one of Miami-Dade’s most narcissistic public officials. After all, Crew has put on an Oscar-worthy performance in deflecting blame for the county's 26 F schools. --Francisco Alvarado
