Todays’ Broward County Commission meeting was one for the record books.
Commissioners crying, yelling, stomping their feet over the proposed Ethics Proposal. They even had to call a time out and send everyone to their corners for a cooling off period!
But while Rome was burning, and Commissioner’s ethics was the topic, District 9 County Commissioner Al C. Jones was busy passing out goodies to the neighborhood Presidents in his District by e-mail!
Commissioner Al C. Jones …. formerly just Al Jones
Here is the first e-mail which arrived just before 1:30 this afternoon
Greetings District 9 Homeowner’s Association Presidents,

But then, the County Commission came back to the dias and finished thier business about the ethical behavior of Commissioners and this e-mail followed about 5:00 p.m. …..
Attention District 9 Homeowner Presidents!
