Bill Lewis’ Facebook Meet Up Attracts Big Crowd In Coral Springs


Despite torrential rain, a Miami Heat game and even Dancing With The Stars, the second Bill Lewis Facebook Family And Friends Meet Up was a huge success. While the final numbers aren’t in, the attendance is sure to surpass the 150 people that came out last month. Lewis, the host of the popular “The Credit Report With Bill Lewis”, hosted the non-partisan get together at Wings Plus in Coral Springs.

Many notable politicians, candidates and celebrities stopped by including Coral Springs Mayor Roy Gold and Parkland Mayor Michael Udine. Local community activist Essie “Big Mama” Reed was one of the stars of the event, as was Credit Report guest host Carlos Reyes.

Several members of the Broward bench enjoyed the wings as did judicial candidates Rhoda Sokoloff and Roshawn Banks. School Board candidate (District 4) Louis Kushner came by to meet the public.

Robert Sutton, Broward County Commission candidate (District 3) was on hand, but there was no sign of his opponent Stacy Ritter(D-Cheetah III). State House Candidate James Gleason was there meeting his future constituents.

Lewis’ event overshadowed the much smaller School Board campaign kickoff being held in a corner of the restaurant.

Lewis said he would continue to hold these events because it allows the public to meet each other and the movers and shakers of Broward county.

  3. You are insane if you think Mayors Gold and Udine showed up for Bill’s event. We all know why they were really at Wings. They stopped in because they had constituents in the room and to do otherwise would be rude. Just like Bob Sutton who couldn’t stop running over to the other event.


  4. I missed this facebook event… darn… don’t ya hate it when that happens??? I know I do!!! lolololol Looks everyone had a Great Time. Count me in for the next event… please just not on June 4th 2012. Hi Bill, Hi Everyone… I Love You ALL!!! Miss Cindy Hall
