Broward State Attorney’s Office
On April 21, 2016, I filed this public records request with the City of Deerfield Beach, “And speaking of Robbzilla, I’d like every single comment she’s posted on the website NextDoor.com. Kindly be advised I will be comparing this to my own personal copies. Just want to make sure Robbzilla is complying with her FS 119 custodial duties.”
On May 10, 2016, the Deerfield Beach City Clerk informed me via email, “our IT department could not access the website.”
Replying back to the Clerk’s office, I wrote “Jean Robb made those comments, she is the record’s custodian… she is responsible for their archival. I re-assert my claim for those records under FS 119.”
On May 17, 2016, the Clerk emails, “In regard to your below questions, no such record exists in regard to Mayor Robb’s comments on that website.”
Fucking bunk bro. Bunk. And I email the Clerk telling them just that, “No disrespect intended, but as to Mayor Robb’s assertion, that is clearly bunk. As I understand it, failure to provide a public record is a crime in Florida. Now obviously, the criminal here isn’t you, your department, or the folks in IT. It is the records keeper… Which in this case is Jean Robb. Robb who categorically made comments on a public forum as mayor.”
Earlier today, I spoke with the City Clerk’s office and was informed Robb claims her comments were made as a private citizen, and not as Mayor.
The following comments were made by Jean Robb on NextDoor.com, but were withheld from my records request.

When I met with the developer, it was before the issue of 9 variances raised its head. I did not meet with the developer after that. Please allow me to clarify that Tom Connick was not the SOB’s attorney in the outrageous agreement he and Miller and the Bruno’s put together. Voting for the hotel was a foregone conclusion; however the taxpayers were once again stuck with 350,000 that the developer will not pay for the maintenance of the parking lot for the next 10 years. The agreement that Miller put before the commission also prevents the city from assessing the property owners for that money or metering the parking lot for ten years.

I was the only negative vote at that meeting. There was absolutely no reason to combine the two proposals at this time. I prefer not to be beholden to anyone when it comes time to vote on the feasibility of extending the number of variances required for the hotel project to move forward.. The 4 who voted made it sound like a done deal. Ganz failed to mention just who from the Cove he had met with to make this determination. Rumor has it that it was the owners of the 2 Georges, Fiesta ballroom and Tom Connick. Connick had previously threatened the city with legal action against the hotel if the Cove was metered.

It takes 4 votes not 3 to grant a variance.

I wouldn’t count on 4 votes
As you well know, Florida Statute 119.10. Violation of chapter; penalties.—
(1) Any public officer who:
(b) Knowingly violates the provisions of s. 119.07(1) is subject to suspension and removal or impeachment and, in addition, commits a misdemeanor of the first degree, punishable as provided in s. 775.082 or s. 775.083.
Finally, now let’s be reasonable, shall we?
Your boss is running for re-election, and we both know his stance on public corruption has softened over the years. Therefore, kindly consider my complaint as legal Viagra … maybe the idea of finally holding Robb accountable might put some lead in Mike’s pencil.
I will be filing similar complaints with the IG and FDLE.
