Lauderdale Lakes Jon Allen

21 Nov The Haynes/Allen crime syndicate.

At his final commission meeting on Oct 28, 2014 (Resolution 2014-121 attached), Haynes tries to make one last attempt to reward Allen. After receiving 40% in raises in the last three years with Haynes help, Haynes makes one last attempt to boost Allen. On the agenda is a proposal to give Allen a 2% raise. As we see, Haynes tires to bump it to 3% but it fails. The proposed 2% increase also fails....

21 Nov Pay attention Jon Allen, your future awaits.

This case took an unusual amount of time to resolve through the ethics enforcement process. Mr. Alston was originally charged with grand theft around the time that you filed your complaint. He was then charged with additional counts during the summer of 2013. ICMA could not contact Mr. Alston for his perspective because his home address was apparently not current and Mr. Alston never provided an email address. Mr. Alston’s trial had been delayed numerous times and ICMA waited to determine if any action would be taken. Only when Mr. Alston pled guilty did ICMA know the name of his attorney...

20 Nov Welcome to Deerfield’s Wet Dream

Regardless of what Dispenziere says, or doesn’t say, just measure his agenda by the company he keeps — aka Robb. And then it dawned on me. As with many things here in Deerfield Beach, when it comes to Robb, all roads lead back to the Nolands, and in this case, Lt. Noland and his DROP pension plan....

Haynes

18 Nov The pincer closes around former Lauderdale Lakes Commissioner Eric Haynes.

It clearly shows that Haynes operated several companies and had financial holdings not identifed as required. Attorney Durden is the registered agent and business partner of Haynes with most of these other companies. Durden also represented Haynes at the city when we challenged Haynes for vacating his office by not maintaining his primary residence in the city as required by city charter. Haynes violated election laws by voting in the 2012 elections using a property address he sold in 2011 in a case sent to the Florida Division of Elections for prosection after I initiated an OIG investigation against him....

18 Nov Reminds us so much of Corey Alston and South Bay. Same schools, same frat houses?

Referring to the City Financial Statements, the Lauderhill Housing Authority operates housing projects for the benefit of lower income families. Nowhere does it say that the Authority gives loans on primary or secondary homes period much less to the Executive and Deputy Director of the Agency who are certainly not low income. Do you think Hobbs made up his own rules for himself and the Deputy Director?...

18 Nov Like Lauderhill, maybe grant reporting and administration in L Lakes are in a mess for a reason?

As we began to dig, we found the same situation with grant reporting in L Lakes as we found in Lauderhill. No big surprise there right. In the first three pages of the attachment which are from the annual financial report posted on the city's website, we see no compliance section or any findings. But when we go the State Auditor General's website, we see a whole bunch of bad crap. ...

17 Nov According to one expert, should Anthony Dispenziere’s ideas be implemented, “the damage could be considerable.”

The return rate, currently at 7.65%, has been under constant bombardment by Dispenziere. A conservative damage estimate, should he get his way of lowering the rate of return, would be, and I quote, "easily in the 1 to 2 million dollar range, money that comes directly from the taxpayer's wallet. And it's not a one-time ding. The hits would keep coming and coming." But don't take my word for it here ...
