***UPDATE*** Holness says COVID “got to him.” He says symptoms minor thanks to being vaccinated.
Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Dale Holness is missing from his big Broward County Commission send off. Holness gave up his District 9 seat to run for US Congress. Holness was defeated by political newcomer Sheila Cherfilus McCormick last month.
Holness attended today’s commission meeting via telephone. While Broward Mayor Michael Udine said Holness was not feeling well, Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis said Holness has COVID-19. Trantalis appeared at the request of Dale Holness.
