Lieberman Found! … Term Limit Battle Update

     Now I can report on how ALL the Broward County Commissioners feel about term limits, and what’s next on the Florida Supreme Court case. I reached seven of the nine Commissioners last week, and at that time, the score was 6 ( in favor of keeping term limits), 1 opposed.

                                             

      You’ll remember that I then put out an APB on Commissioner Ilene Lieberman, when I couldn’t find her anywhere, ( after a half dozen requests), to ask her if she favored term limits. 

     Well, I finally found her (actually, she found me). She called and told me that she had been out due to her sister’s death, and then gave me quite a bit of gruff for harassing her.  

     After we got past that, she told me that she “unequivocally supports term limits” and intends on abiding by them regardless of the outcome of the Florida Supreme Court Case.

     And, Commissioner Sharief’s Chief of Staff, Torey Alston,
 
                                       
                                               Chief Alston

 told me that although Sharief is still out on a personal family matter, that she supports term limits completely also.

     So,  that’s 8-1, with all Commissioners supporting the citizen’s term limit law, except for 

                                           
                                     Commissioner John Rodstrom.

     Also, as an update, the advocate group Save Broward Term Limits has been searching for an attorney it can afford so they, as citizens, can join the fight with the County to retain term limits. If you know of a good one that works cheap, go to SaveBrowardTermLimits.com and let them know!

     Lastly, here is a picture of the “client” of Scherers, in his appeal to overturn term limits at the Florida Supreme Court.
      His name is William Telli, lives in Scherer’s neighborhood, and told a reporter he “didn’t know why the lawsuit was in his name”, ….. I’ve tried calling him, but, no surprise, Telli won’t talk to me –  

                                    
                                         no caption necessary!



     Anyhow,  Here is the Florida Supreme Court case docket card, so you can follow the progress of the case along with me –
