UPDATE: A tipster informed us Carl Williams is Marlon Bolton’s appointee to the Tamarac Parks and Recreation committee. Williams also shilled for Bolton in a 2020 letter to Tamarac Talk.

A business with ties to Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton worked on Vice Mayor Elvin Villalobos’ 2020 campaign, reports show. While Villalobos’ campaign treasurer reports are mysteriously absent from the City Of Tamarac website, REDBROWARD obtained the documents through a public records request. The records show Mojo Global Holdings LLC received $16,576 from Villalobos.

Villalobos reports list a Lauderhill UPS store as the address for Mojo Global Holdings. State records show Carl K. Williams is the managing member of the company. The State records list P.O. Box 246164 in Pembroke Pines as the mailing address for Mojo Global Holdings.

State records list Carl Williams and the P.O. Box 246164 on the business records for New Convenant Ministeries International-Miami Florida. While the post office box is listed as its mailing address, since 2017, corporate records show the principal address of New Convenant Ministeries International-Miami Florida as 1625 S. State Road 7 in North Lauderdale.

Since 2015, the storefront at 1625 S. State Road 7 in North Lauderdale has been the principal address for Praise Experience Worldwide Outreach Church. This church is owned by Marlon Bolton.

On April 12, 2019, Carl Williams created the “Go Tamarac Go PAC” using the P.O. Box 246164 mailing address.

On that same day, Carl Williams formed the “Residents United PAC” using the P.O. Box 246164 address. On July 31, 2020, Residents United PAC received a $7,500 contribution from Exy Consultants at P.O. Box 451711 in Fort Lauderdale.

MARLON BOLTON & HAPPY FEET

Last week, REDBROWARD exposed Marlon Bolton’ business ties to Exy Consultants owner Trace Robinson. In addition to Exy Consultants, Trace N. Robinson is listed as the owner of Happy Feet Advertising. Even though business paperwork shows a Margate address, the mailing address for Happy Feet Advertising is listed as P.O. Box 451711 Fort Lauderdale, FL 33345.

State records also show businesses owned by Marlon Bolton use the same post office box.

Florida business records show the post office box address used by Happy Feet Advertising has been used by Marlon Bolton since at least 2014. These businesses include Tyson Bolton and Associates, Forecast Holdings, LLC, Prophet Fire, and Win Without War. These same records show Marlon Bolton and Trace Robinson are business partners.

Records list Marlon Bolton and Trace Robinson as owners of The Driven Project, Praise Experience Worldwide Outreach Church, and South Florida Theological Seminary, Inc. The companies also use the same post office box.

Last year, Trace Robinson created the Broward Vision PAC political committee. The address for the PAC is the same post office box used by Bolton.

State of Florida campaign records show Broward Vision PAC paid $1,400 to Exy Consultants.

According to Tamarac campaign reports, Commissioner Marlon Bolton provided Happy Feet Advertising with its biggest payday. Reports show Bolton paid nearly $14,000 to Happy Feet Advertising during the 2020 election cycle.

When asked for comment, Marlon Bolton refused to answer any questions.

REDBROWARD called Elvin Villalobos for comment about Mojo Global Holdings LLC. He has not responded.

Is it just mere coincidence that businesses and political committees tied to Marlon Bolton are getting paid to elect allies of Bolton all across Broward?

For the folks in Margate, this type of behavior is usually frowned upon.

Will anyone else ask Marlon Bolton and Elvin Villalobos about these coincidences?

Tamarac residents deserve real answers, no?
