Hallandale Beach Mayor Keith London does not like his city’s firefighters. At a recent commission meeting, London mocked the intelligence of a firefighters union official. Not surprisingly, the union endorsed London’s opponent Joy Adams.
On Tuesday, the ponytailed London attacked a firefighter at an early voting location in Hallandale Beach. London mocked the first responder for being paid by “the taxpayers your whole career.”
When the fireman said he runs into burning buildings for a living, a snarky London replied, “Congratulations, you signed up for the job. That’s the job you wanted.” London had to be pulled away from the fireman by another campaign worker.
Remember, Keith London is the same guy who confronted a city worker in the middle of the street and asked him about sex in prison. London told the Broward State Attorney’s Office that former Commissioner Bill Julian was a “migrant worker.” During a public meeting, Keith London asked fellow commissioner Anabelle Taub about “anal bleaching.”
And when The Sun-Sentinel endorsed him they said London was “too glib.” Does the Sun-Sentinel think London attacking firemen is “glib.”
Perhaps London felt brave surrounded by his campaign team of lobbyists: Evan Ross and Scott Cowan?
