Happy 57th Birthday Juli Casale, You’ve Had Quite A Year With Lawsuits, Political Embarrassments And Alcohol!
Happy 57th Birthday Juli Casale! Seriously, we at Delray Beach Confidential mean it. You deserve it.
After all, we get quite a volume of correspondence about our city leadership. Most of it has to do with the bedraggled Commissioner Juli Casale. So today, for her birthday, we’ve decided to mark the occasion with a brief rundown of her achievements of late.
We first met Casale when she appeared seemingly out of nowhere on the DB political scene. She claimed to be a Harvard grad who sold her Connecticut business for “millions of dollars.”
Her words not ours.
Casale unseated her well-established rival. She declined to explain any details of the origins of her fabulous fortune. Yet, she resides in the very modest neighborhood Sabal Lakes. Naturally, we became immediately suspicious.
Upon arriving at City Hall, Casale took on a new role. Mayor Shelly Petrolia’s lapdog.
Casale votes lock-step with the Mayor, almost as if the two have had prior discussions on topics. They were aligned in the notorious July 2021 vote to oust the charity that had run Old School Square since the early 1990s with no public input in a non-agenda discussion, among other dubious actions.
All of this lead us to examine: Just who is Juli Casale?
Happy 57th Birthday Juli Casale! Can We See The Harvard Liberal Arts Degree?
Juli Casale regaled the idiots at the Palm Beach Post and Sun Sentinel with tales of her Harvard Education. Casale claims alternately to have a, “Liberal Arts Degree,” or an, “AB” degree from Harvard College and that she graduated cum laude.
We have confirmed that Juli Casale did not attend Harvard as an undergraduate. According to her sister, she barely graduated from High School in Connecticut. Allegedly, her career as a stripper interfered with her studies.
Harvard’s registrar confirmed to us that Casale did take courses online at the Harvard Extension School. This is Harvard’s online degree mill. No application is required. Just pay to play. It has no academic merit or value whatsoever. Unlike a true Ivy League degree, it confers no rights, honors or privileges.
Sold Business Worth Millions?
Juli Casale claimed that she had founded and subsequently sold a business in Connecticut worth “millions of dollars.”
Casale has declined on numerous occasions to explain the nature of the business. She also refused to provide its name or any other detail.
There is no record of Juli having owned or sold any business in Connecticut state filings. Juli’s maiden name appears only sporadically on real estate holdings with her brother and father. No business filings at all.
Juli’s own sister explains: “Juli was a stripper for many years until getting pregnant. Juli married her now-husband after he found her in a strip club in Connecticut and became her primary client.”
This is a reference to Juli’s current husband Robert Casale. Casale was the Saul Goodman of Connecticut criminal attorneys.
Robert’s only online review is anonymous and it reads:
Although I have not done any significant work with Robert Casale for many years, attorneys whom I hold in very high regard hold him in very high regard.”
Only one anonymous review after a 4-decade career, Bob? Hmm…
Burning Down The Trailer
Juli Casale’s tales of being fabulously wealthy became even more mysterious. Several months ago, we learned about a small claims lawsuit that she was involved in back home in Connecticut.
A trailer that Juli owned in Meriden, CT caught fire in the summer of 2021.
- Juli Casale owned a $59,000 trailer in the New England Village trailer park
- She has a secret daughter, Ashley, who lived in the trailer
- Casale claimed she was so financially destitute that the judge in the case allowed her to take a $35 per week payment plan to Collins
Happy 57th Birthday Juli Casale! Or Should We Call You Commissioner Grandma?
Borderline Histrionic Drunk?
We also received various reports and explanations of Casale’s bizarre and incongruous behavior of late.
Happy 57th Birthday Juli Casale! Pass … The Manischewitz?
Have Another Term?
Unfortunately, Juli Casale has filed to run for re-election in March 2023. As of yet, she has is running unopposed.
Only in Delray Beach, kids… Only in Delray Beach!
