BREC Leadership

Instead of attacks, lists of endorsements, and snarky Facebook posts shouldn’t all candidates for BREC leadership tell us how they’re going to help elect more Republicans in Broward county? Last week’s GOP wave was barely a ripple here. We can’t settle for an Allen West victory here and a Chip LaMarca triumph there.

How many democrats ran against “write-in” instead of a Republican? How many Republicans voted for a Democrat because they didn’t know better? Are we going to use the “Century Village” and “King’s Point” excuses forever? Are we going to cede everything west of Lighthouse Point to Mitch Cesar and the Dems? Are we going to let the democrats fight amongst themselves for control of the School Board? The County Commission? Are we going to keep settling for one seat on each?

I’m just asking. Any thoughts?

Rest In Peace, Susan Madori

“We just confirmed some sad news.

Susan Madori, 66, the candidate who came within a hair’s breadth of forcing Broward School Board Chairwoman Jennifer Gottlieb into a runoff back in August, passed away on Sunday. Madori’s niece confirmed the news Monday morning.

Family members said she was recently diagnosed with Crohn’s disease and emphysema. No local services will be held. She’ll be buried in a family plot in Chicago.”
