Commissioner Atkins-Grad Addresses Homeowners at Neighborhood Meeting

By: Sharon Aron Baron

Tamarac held its Neighborhood Meeting on Wednesday night where the mayor, commissioner and city staff members discussed the latest projects and future events with the city.  This particular neighborhood meeting which was held for Tamarac’s District Two was a chance for neighbors to ask newly reinstated Commissioner Patte Atkins-Grad questions for the first time.

Atkins-Grad read a carefully prepared speech, where she said the one issue that she will not discuss was stepping down, and after she was accused of corruption, a jury found her, “innocent of all charges.”  She never says what she will do for her city or her constituents.  Never mentioned are what meetings she has attended or anything else she has done since she has been back in office. Immediately, in defensive mode, Atkins-Grad walked away without so much as applause from the over 100 in attendance.
