It’s a busy election season for the Broward School Board race, and District 4 is no exception with six candidates vying for the seat.
District 4 which includes: Parkland, Coral Springs, Tamarac, North Lauderdale and parts of Margate has lost one candidate, Jaemi Levine, but has gained a new candidate named Abby Freedman.
Whether you are a Democrat or a Republican, every woman should be outraged when they see this campaign ad by candidate Ozzy deFaria.
deFaria, a Republican congressional candidate from Weston, photo-shopped a dog collar around Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz’s neck for one of his advertisements before stating on video that she “needed to be sent back to the pound.”
Those political “Meet & Greets” are great if you can get people to show up and donate money, however, it’s almost like preaching to the choir when the same old people are showing up to show their support. Well, Chappy Davidson isn’t wasting his time sitting in restaurants with his band of supporters…….
Karen Harrington, who may be the Republican’s best chance of unseating Debbie Wasserman Shultz in November, may have lost a few fans with her recent endorsement from Phyllis Schlafly.
Did you know that Betty the blonde Broward politician is also a trained baker? Yes, only if you are good friends with Betty will you actually get one of these home-made goodies.
Shelly Solomon kicked off her bid to become the next School Board Member in District 4 by hosting a “Meet & Greet” in Coral Springs.
Held at Meyers Latin Flair Restaurant, Solomon was joined by her four children and many supporters.
Activists across Broward County met on the corner of University and Sunrise Boulevard for a “Three Stooges Tax Day Rally”. However, the stooges they were protesting had nothing to do with the current movie out in theaters. The stooges these teachers, parents, activists, labor groups, and concerned middle class Floridians were protesting about were: Rick Scott, Mitt Romney and Marco Rubio.
President Obama made a stop in South Florida at the Hollywood Diplomat Hotel this week and Tamarac resident Michele Kanarek was able to get the chance to see him for the third time.
The School Board race for District 4 will have a competitive season now that six candidates have filed to run in the open seat. More candidates have filed to run in District 4 race than for any other school board race in the county. There may seem to be a lot of candidates, however, during this time in 2010, there were seven candidates, with only six made it past qualifying.
Currently, six candidates have filed to run in the congressional race against Debbie Wasserman-Schultz seat, and one of them is going to provide a lot of entertainment for the media, that is, if he can afford to stay in the race. His name is Joe Kaufman and he is the Chairman of Americans Against Hate….
Martin David Kiar, who is a candidate for Broward County Commission District 1, sent out this glossy four-page mailer today to all registered Democrats today which will surely get attention.
In her first campaign appearance for President Obama this election, Caroline Kennedy made a stop at the Tamarac Community Center on Thursday, March 22 to connect with Women for Obama supporters in Broward County. Kennedy, daughter of President John F. Kennedy, is an attorney, writer, and editor and serves on the boards of numerous nonprofit organizations.
Marking this week’s two year anniversary of the passage of the Affordable Care Act, Kennedy reminded the packed crowd about President’s leadership on health care reform that protects Americans.
Already the bloggers are having a field day with this race and it has only begun. Let’s just hope for some maturity and civility in each of these races. Only the candidates at the top can stop the venom that is spewed from their friends. If they cannot show leadership early in the game, what can we expect from them when they are elected? Let’s all have a fair election and not let social media make a mockery out of the real issues affecting our communities.
As voters in Florida get ready to name the next victor in the first batch of Republican primaries and caucuses, nationally, Mitt Romney is ahead of Newt Gingrich. Among Republicans, over one-quarter (27%) would vote for former MassachusettsGovernor Mitt Romney in the primary while 21% would vote for former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich. One in ten would each vote for Congressman Ron Paul (11%) and former U.S. Senator Rick Santorum (11%) and three in ten Republicans (29%) are still not at all sure who they would vote for in the Republican primary.
Tamarac Resident Julie Shapiro-Harris kicked off her run for Circuit Court Judge on December 4th at a party at the home of Kim Miller of Coral Springs.
Besides being an Attorney, Harris has a Masters Degree in social work.
By Marty Rubinstein When former Tamarac Commissioner Marc Sultanof passed away this week, there was still chatter going around the community about his dealings with the Chaits. Now that one side has been silenced, we’ll never know the whole story I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again. Marc (or insert any name you like here) […]
