David Brown, Democrat candidate for Broward Supervisor of Elections, isn’t pulling any punches when it comes to the performance of his opponent. At a recent candidate forum in Plantation, Brown was highly-critical of Dr. Brenda Snipes’ performance of her official duties. Snipes was not present at the forum.

Brown blamed Snipes for Broward’s low voter turnout rates. He blasted Snipes’ acceptance of a $16,000 raise, vowing to decline any increase in salary until the turnout rate increases to the statewide average. Brown said Snipes has dropped the ball with early voting as well.

Brown said there is insufficient parking at early voting sites in western Broward. He said poll workers told him voters leave without casting a ballot because they cannot find a parking space at the Cooper City library.

Brown said Snipes was wrong to tout her early voting location at the the Coral Ridge Mall as a success. He said the Fort Lauderdale shopping center closed its doors an hour before voting was scheduled to end.

Brown said voters we left banging on doors on Sunday evening.

David Brown took a swipe at Snipes’ in-house lawyer, Burnadette Norris-Weeks for supporting local candidates.
