Still smarting from a Sun-Sentinel exposé, thin-skinned Tamarac Commissioners Elberg Mike Gelin and Marlon Bolton lead the charge for the hiring of an independent investigator to determine who leaked a memo to the media. Vice Mayor Elvin Villalobos and Commissioner Debra Placko joined them by voting to hire someone to ferret out who warned residents about an amendment to increase Commissioners’ travel budget. Only Mayor Michelle Gomez voted against this insane move.

The move came close to midnight on Wednesday. Last week, Elberg Gelin and Marlon Bolton spent more than two hours attacking the Sun-Sentinel over the same story.

What the hell is going on in Tamarac?!?

  1. I’m confused. Wouldn’t a memo generated by a public official be a matter of public record? How can one “leak” a public record record? What am I missing here?
