The “Special Election” in Fort Lauderdale’s District II, has just gotten more expensive!
You’ll remember that there has to be an election to fill the seat that Commissioner Rodstrom resigned from to run for her husband’s County Commission seat. (Rodstrom lost that race and is now running to regain her City seat).
Fort Lauderdale’s City Clerk Jonda Joseph told the Mayor and Commissioners late this afternoon that the costs for the Special Election have risen now that Hallandale canceled their Special Election and Fort Lauderdale couldn’t cost share with them.
The Election is now expected to cost Fort Lauderdale $212,685.
Mayor Jack Seiler called the development “very disappointing and frustrating”.
