Economic Development Manager Ana Zeinieh has left to take a position with the City of Coral Springs. If that sounds familiar, former Director of Community Development Jennifer Bramley left last year to work for them as well as their Deputy City Manager.
This is the time of year when many county government elected officials throughout the state shudder and hold our collective breath. Why?
The following is my response to the Sun Sentinel Editorial by Columnist Gary Stein titled A Little Youthful Flavor Never Hurt Anyone. By: Sharon Aron Baron Gary Stein you are so wrong in your editorial on Sunday, November 25, by accusing Tamarac residents of not wanting change with the proposed charter middle and high school. It’s […]
Before he was introduced the President told the audience that no questions about the Doral Charter School would be permitted during the Q & A because the mayor had informed him that the charter school issue is not one that has come before the commission, nor brought to their attention.
One resident doesn’t give a hoot about plans for a new charter school being built.
A burrowing owl who has made her home on the land proposed for a new charter school plans on raising her family right there.
By: Sharon Aron Baron Back in 2012, City Commissioners Diane Glasser and Pam Bushnell were both reelected unopposed, which means their constituents were pretty much happy with the way they were doing things over in City hall. Or were they weren’t paying attention. In 2016, the District 1 and 3 seat will be up for […]
They believe in education, but the City is wasting taxpayer time and money on a poorly selected location for a charter school that is neither wanted or needed, said residents from Kings Point that turned out for Wednesday night’s City Commission meeting.
What does it tell you about an organization that doesn’t want the public to know exactly where they are located?
Have you ever heard the saying “If you don’t stand for something you’ll fall for anything?” This morning at Kingspoint, hundreds of angry residents protested the proposed charter high school, while City Commissioner Diane Glasser sat there mutely, sharing no opinion one way or another.
I’ve been accused of being anti-charter school. Am I against all charter schools? Not necessarily. Am I against most of them? Perhaps. Especially when there have been so few that have proven any exceptional benefits to students besides teaching to the State tests.
Exactly one year ago, the City Commission made a unanimous motion to authorize a study for City staff to evaluate street canvassing and soliciting at our most dangerous intersections.
The City has been very sneaky about building a new Charter High School in town. They say it’s wanted and needed, but by who?

Having company over and would like beer or wine for lunch on Sunday? Maybe you’re heading to a tailgate party and need to stock up before the game. Well, forget about buying these items in the City of Tamarac because our antiquated ordinance forbids retailers and restaurants from selling or serving alcohol before noon on Sunday.
By: Sharon Aron Baron Mayor Harry Dressler is asking for residents to re-elect him for mayor on his recent campaign mailers, potentially misleading them into believing that he was elected into office. As you may remember, Dressler was appointed after Beth Talabisco was re-suspended by the Governor. Just last week I reported that he stole our images to promote himself […]

In August 2013, the City of Tamarac installed over 15 red light cameras. After one year of operation, I wanted to find out how they were doing.
When the city of Tamarac signed the contract with American Traffic Solution in November of 2012, the mayor and commissioners stressed that they would be installed for safety reasons, and Commissioner Michelle Gomez assured me that they would be “cost neutral.”
Like the great California Gold Rush in the 19th Century, charter school operators are flocking to cities in South Florida hoping to strike it big by hoodwinking innocent families with slick brochures while taking advantage of lax application requirements to open their doors.
Dragging your feet getting that absentee ballot filled out and mailed? Maybe you’re considering voting at the polls on August 26.
Make no mistake: whether it’s August or November, voting is important and it’s important for our future.
As a woman, few things are as disturbing as watching history unfold as progress takes a giant leap backwards. The outcome of the Hobby Lobby case has proven yet again that patriarchy, and slut-shaming, are alive and well in America, and may have women who once considered themselves moderate Republicans rethinking their votes in the upcoming elections.
