Despite the economic struggles of most south Floridians, on Saturday night Broward Democrats hosted a Blacktie gala for Broward’s ruling glass. The affair was held at the Marriott Heron Bay in Parkland. Some came by limousine, but most took advantage of the free parking. If you wanted to have fun last night it helped if you had the bank account of the “1%”. According to a Broward Democrat website, the prices were as follows:
Diamond Sponsors $2,500
Gold Sponsors $2,000
Table Sponsors. $1,700
Dinner Ticket. $150
VIP Cocktail Ticket. $125
With that kind of money you could almost fill your gas tank!
Some of your
rulers Broward Democrat leaders in attendance were, Broward County Commisioner Ilene Lieberman, Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter, Broward State Attorney Mike Satz, Broward Clerk of Courts Howard Forman, Broward County Property Appraiser Lori Parrish, huge Alex Sink fan Caryl Hattan, huge Democrat Steve Geller, Jack Shifrel, Broward County commissioner Kristin Jacobs and her opponent Lois Frankel. BSO candidate Louis Granteed showed up too. Also there, Tamarac Vice Mayor Diane Glasser and her friend Percy Johnson.
You know who wasn’t there? Those Occupy Fort Lauderdale kids in downtown Fort Lauderdale. Guess their invites got lost in the mail. Or maybe the long march to Parkland was too much for them.
But how many regular folks can afford to spend a few hundred bucks to have dinner and drinks with Mitch Ceasar and company? Did they care that most of Broward’s lumpen proletariat sticks to the 2 for $20 meals at Applebees followed by a $1 movie rental at Redbox?
Nah. Just like Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Out of Touch), Broward Democrats are woefully out of touch with the people of Broward county
