We know Mayor Russell will be sitting off in the corner along with Dumb and Dumber Commissioners Rathery and Coleman saying that Allen is hot shit and everyone should bow down to him as we do.

Lauderdale Lakes: If you build it, they will come.

Or in the case of the Lauderdale Lakes CRA, after they pay $6.2M (over appraised price) for the Commerce Park property, they will then determine why they should not have bought it. And by the way, they will pay someone else to tell them the development issues with the property after they bought it.
