City Manager Jon Allen is busy sending out letters and working the phone lines to support this initiative to reduce the Commission size. Allen already drafted his intern Te’Andre Gomion to run for the seat of Commissioner LeVoyd Williams in the March elections. You know the person with the Jr ROTC experience who lives in North Lauderdale and is a Republican. The relative of Eric Haynes who Haynes loaned his vacant garage address for qualifying. Why? Allen needs to keep his peeps on the Commission. Gomion will fill the bill as a peep. Haynes being term limited occupies seat 3 which is slated to go away in November 2014 if this passes. But MAOS surmises that Haynes will be back but Gomion can keep it in the family. What we find interesting is that according to this ballot, if the Commission loses two seats it will save $94 thousand annually (that is $47 thousand annually per Commissioner). How did the salary of a Commissioner go from $8 thousand as allowed in the charter to $47 thousand? That will be part 2 of this saga. Now you can see why Haynes owes well over $50 thousand to the city since he … Read More
The Commission seat held by LeVoyd Williams is up for re-election in March. Since Williams has announced he is running for State office later this year, his wife Beverly Williams, a known community activist has filed to run for the position. Not so fast says Haynes and Allen. These two have been screwing the William(s) for some time now (as MAOS has reported before) and apparently they are not done yet. Not so fast says Haynes and Allen. Seems there has been an intern working with Allen for a while now receiving Allen’s direction (not a female, know what you are thinking). So somehow this person is now fling to run for the commission seat. Where did this name come up before? Seems he was the campaign manager for the opponent of Commissioner Patricia Williams in the last election. You know, Patricia Williams was the one Haynes went after for disclosing his non-residence in the city and said he would get her. The very same one that Haynes sent his bulldog Gwen Denton after before resulting in dropped ethics investigations. Seems this “intern” candidate lives in North Lauderdale and ran for mayor there before. So North Lauderdale residence and running … Read More
Mr. David Frankel MAOS Attorney via email You once mentioned should I encounter any difficulty obtaining public records, Attorney Jim Brady would help you work through any issue. Opa! Expanding on PRR 2013-147, I request copies, of any possible city or city-related business sent, for the last year, to/from the following official’s personal email account(s): Commissioner Eric Haynes Commissioner LeVoyd Williams Commissioner Edwina Coleman What I am *not* looking for are blanket certifications from Haynes and his stoolies.
MAOS has already questioned the $1M BSO supposedly overcharged L Lakes. Especially since the BC Auditor said that BSO did not bill the city for overhead as they did all other cities. But what MAOS questions is how City Manager Allen is going to use the $1M to eliminate the balloon payment of $4.2M due in 2016. And yes Allen admits as MAOS has stated all along that it would require “some type of unhealthy financing to pay off that amount.” Remember the old sell off of city assets and property and then lease them back arrangement Allen proposed some time ago. Another bone-head idea where the one lone consultant (another Allen crony like Manny Diez deal?) came up with the plan that paid everyone but the city. MAOS of course helped kill that in its tracks. Allen wants to refinance for another three years (to 2019) and eliminate the balloon payment. But wait a minute — Broward County is backing the whole past due BSO contract payments through 2011 of $9.2M. BSO did not budget L Lakes in the city contracts for 2012, 2013, and 2014. Broward County is backing the L Lakes contract not BSO. Is BC a … Read More
To: City Clerk (or the person pretending to be) Lauderdale Lakes via email Good afternoon. The following is a request for public information. For the last year, all city related emails for the following Commissioners contained within all of their personal email account(s). Edwina Coleman Levoyd Williams Eric Haynes To clarify… I am not interested in emails contained within city issued (@lauderdalelakes.org) account. I am only interested in city related emails contained in the Commissioner’s personal email accounts. All of their accounts. Every single account. City business = public document — as you well know. Electronic versions of these records would be preferred. Should there be the slightest bit of confusion, kindly do not hesitate to call. Besties.
