Newest Democrat Running For Broward Commission Is Republican Living In Palm Beach?!?

The latest Democrat seeking the District 9 seat on the Broward County Commission is actually a registered Republican living in Palm Beach County. On Thursday, Milagro Canizares filed as Democrat for the seat currently occupied by controversial County Commissioner Dale Holness. Canizares gave an Boynton Beach address. Voter databases show Canizares is registered Republican in Miami-Dade County.

When contacted by REDBROWARD, Canizares admitted to living in Palm Beach County. “It’s where I sleep and get my mail,” Canizares said. “I am looking for a job right now.” When asked if she ever lived in District 9, Canizares said this was not “the right time to talk.”

Canizares said she does not have a campaign manager but she “wants to make a difference.”

Despite signing a legal document on June 25, 2015 at 4:49 pm claiming to be a Democrat, Canizares admitted she is still a registered Republican. “I will take care of it next week,” Canizares said.

Only in Broward.
