Shameless is the family friendly word to describe Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton asking residents for “gifts” on his birthday. Of course, these “gifts” cannot be turkey dinners, subscriptions to the Tamarac Post or even supermarket gift cards. Birthday “gifts” for Marlon Bolton need to be cold, hard cash (credit cards also accepted).
In a self-serving (de rigueur) Facebook post, Marlon Bolton wishes himself a happy birthday. He wrote “click here to send your gifts.” Bolton includes a link to make a contribution to his 2024 re-election campaign.
Once redirected to an Andeot page for the Bolton campaign, readers are asked to make a campaign contribution between $5 and $1000. There is a special $370 contribution for a “37th birthday gift.” The campaign declares the $1000 contribution is the “most popular and most impactful.” No doubt!
Will Bolton claim the post is just a joke?
That would be cowardly and shameless.
Tamarac residents deserve better, right?
