A mystery mailer entitled “Moving Tamarac Forward” is hitting Tamarac mailboxes this week. The Democrat friendly voting recommendations are a carbon copy of Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton’s previous attempts to influence local elections. A disclaimer states the mailer was produced by a Tampa based political committee (more on that later).
Unsurprisingly, Moving Tamarac Forward recommends Elberg Mike Gelin for mayor. Gelin and Bolton are close allies who turned Tamarac into a political laughingstock. Gelin and Bolton are desperate to unseat popular incumbent Mayor Michelle Gomez.
The pick for the District 2 seat on the Tamarac Commission is somewhat surprising. Moving Tamarac Forward picks Morey Wright over Stuart Michelson. Wright is a shadowy perennial candidate in multiple races. Michelson and his wife, former Broward County Commissioner Ilene Lieberman are closely allied to Bolton and Gelin.
