As part of Black History Month, Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony (D-Thin Skin) uses his official podcast to interview former Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness. Tony says the controversial Holness “spent his life tirelessly advocating for Broward County residents….” Rumors persist that Dale Holness has also “tirelessly” advocating for a high-paid position at BSO. (Government Relations anyone?)
Here’s the full pitch on Facebook from Tony:
“On this special Black History Month episode of Shop Talk with the Sheriff, I sit down with former Broward County Mayor Dale Holness. He has spent his life tirelessly advocating for Broward County residents, especially those historically left out and left behind. Listen in as we discuss what it takes to move our community forward and build a better society.” — Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony
Here’s the full press release from BSO:
The celebration of Black History Month continues. In the latest episode of The Shop Talk with the Sheriff podcast, Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony’s special guest is long-time public servant Dale V.C. Holness. He shares his story from being born in Jamaica to what drove him to a life of service.
Holness is a 17-year elected official who has served Broward County in various capacities, including as a county commissioner and former Broward County mayor. Listen as Holness and Sheriff Tony reflect on the journey of the Black community through history and how to move our community forward, building a better society together regardless of race.
“The journey for us as a people is about struggles, victories, persevering, and moving forward. We have challenges, but we overcome them,” Holness said. “We find a way to build a better world not just for Blacks but for everyone.”
A partnership is critical to enhancing the quality of life of a community, according to Holness. He shared how progress doesn’t exist in silos and touched on the importance of including everyone at the table to achieve it.
“We have too many people not living to their fullest potential, it robs us towards doing better,” Holness said.
