…. For those of you that don’t follow politics …..there was an election this past Tuesday in Fort Lauderdale. And even though there were only two things on the ballot …… the election still costs a boatload of money to hold …
What’s worse, only 7.2% of the voters turned out to vote …… My rough math tells me it probably costs about $40 per voter !!!!
Anyhow, here are the results –
1.) Mayor Jack Seiler wins re-election big at 72% of the vote …… That wasn’t a big surprise. The only surprise is that perennial candidate, and ferocious anti- Seiler foil Earl Rynerson came in dead last – beaten by Seiler and a mostly unknown bartender – Chris Brennan
2.) Robert Mckinzie, after surviving multiple challenges to his candidacy, trounced challenger Donna Guthrie by about a 60/40 margin… I supported Guthrie, but now that Mckinzie is the Commissioner, I will support his efforts to make District III a better area ….
Here’s an idea Commissioner –
…..Many years ago, Commissioner Carlton Moore and I banded together to have the wall surrounding the junkyard at I95 and Sunrise Boulevard made pretty …It’s gotten marked up and dirtied over the years…
…… I tried to convince former Commissioner Dubose to get together a make-over on the wall during his tenure, but to no avail
… So Commissioner Mckinzie, how about you? …. Will you do it? …Can I help ?
