In 2012, City Commissioners Diane Glasser and Pam Bushnell were both re-elected unopposed, which means their constituents were pretty much happy with how they were doing things over in City hall.
In 2016, the District 1 and 3 seat will be up for grabs again, and now is the time for residents who have a vested interest in the future needs of their residents to start campaigning and raising funds for the election.
Besides overseeing two large areas in Tamarac, being a city commissioner is also a lucrative part-time job, so it would be a shame if anyone ended up running unopposed. For instance, a commissioner in Tamarac makes $29,000 annually, plus each gets a hefty $700 a month car allowance, as well as a host of other benefits like health insurance, 401K, and expenses.
If you are someone with some chutzpah, have a good business background, outstanding leadership and people skills, are honest, and have some great ideas to make your district better, then let’s get working.
