Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness hired Anthony Bonamy as his aide less than a month after he was fired by the City of North Lauderdale. Bonamy had been the deputy city clerk of North Lauderdale since December 2020. The North Lauderdale Commission fired Bonamy on April 13, 2021 after REDBROWARD revealed his role in the “Tamarac Post” website which supports Marlon Bolton, Elberg Mike Gelin and Dale Holness. While Bonamy’s role in political consulting caused concerned for North Lauderdale leaders, it did not stop Holness from using Broward taxpayer dollars to put Bonamy on the County payroll.
According to Broward County Commission visitor logs, Dale Holness met with Anthony Bonamy on May 5th to “discuss office details.” Two days later, Holness and Bonamy met again. At the second meeting, Holness and Bonamy discussed “future items.” On May 14, 2021 Bonamy met with Holness chief of staff Heidi Richards. The log indicated Bonamy provided “documents” to Richards. As of publication, Anthony Bonamy is listed as a Holness aide on the official Broward County Commission website.
