Russell is term limited so hopefully we will see the last of him in 2016 unless City Attorney Brady comes up with a “Russell” clause to find a loophole for him.Read More
“Who came up with the 10 percent?” Commissioner Levoyd Williams asked during the commission’s Monday night workshop.Read More
Gomion’s announcement gives him enough time to establish a residence in an unoccupied garage (aka The Haynes Residency Model).Read More
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?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 for election in Lauderdale Lakes? No problem here as he is a relative of Haynes. He can just use the garage address of the vacant house that Haynes uses for his “residence.” Problem solved. Look for another election/voting violation here soon. And just think, Haynes is under invesitgation for voter fraud now so this must run in the family.
Allen insists he needs a friendly face (aka puppet) on the Commission. Some of the others are starting to look at him in a different light now. Maybe like a felon. And old buddy Haynes’ influence is waning and buddy Rod Harvey had to move on and can’t cover Allen’s excesses anymore.
On another subject — Thanks to Allen, Manny Diez is getting his payoff by being promoted to Public Works Director under Allen’s new reorganization and is joining Gary Rogers in the $100k plus salary club. Actually the reorganization is not new but back to the way it was when Manny was there several years ago. Can you spell sham?Read More
Mr. David Frankel
You once mentioned should I encounter any difficulty obtaining public records, Attorney Jim Brady would help you work through any issue.
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):Read More
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.Read More
