Charlotte Rodstrom’s Derriere Pain

     If Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner Charlotte Rodstrom is feeling a sharp pain in the backside as of late, it is most probably coming from this man.
 
                                                                         

     Steve Glassman, long time former President of the Central Beach Alliance, who lost to Rodstrom in a tough battle last election cycle, has been amping up his criticism of Rodstrom’s City Commission performance.

     His latest e-mail questions why Rodstrom called for a beach review of the Windmill controversy when, he says, Rodstrom was at the meeting where the beach’s review of the Windmills was on the agenda.

     I asked Steve if his latest criticisms of Rodstrom foretold any upcoming decisions on his part, and what he thought of her performance as the District II Commissioner.  He answered with this- 

                             ……………………………………………………………………………………………………………..
      “My parents always said that if you don’t have something nice to say about someone, then don’t say anything at all; I’m going to break that rule.

      Realizing that I’m not the most objective person to weigh in, let me just say that I do not give Charlotte a high grade for performance.

     I believe her to be petty, rude, and childish. She has done little in the way of improving the quality of life for the residents of Fort Lauderdale; in fact, her actions have actually been detrimental to creating jobs, fostering economic growth, and helping people stay in their homes. Folks are struggling and are tuned out, yet she panders, grandstands, and does little more than attract attention.

     On a positive note, she certainly looks busy and speaks a lot at Commission meetings – so much so that her colleagues can hardly get a word in edgewise.”

I joked with Steve to tell me how he really felt and then asked “so, are you considering another run against Rodstrom? He replied –

     I wonder why so many people are asking me that lately?
