21st Century BREC? Local GOP gets its TECH together

Last November, Red Broward reported on the sad state of the BREC website. The website was down too often and when it wasn’t offline it did not impress.

It was put to shame by the local Democrat website. The DEC had better graphics and superior information.

It appears that the new BREC team, lead by Chairman Richard DeNapoli, listened to your complaints. During the BREC campaign for chairman, DeNapoli promised too upgrade BREC’s website and social media presence. So, as promised, here is the new BREC website (www.browardgop.org)

The graphics are much improved as is the layout. On the information side, you can find applications, a member’s only area, calendar and an “insider” section.

Another Broward Democrat arrested on corruption charges

Former Fort Lauderdale Vice Mayor Cindi Hutchinson

From the Sun-Sentinel:

“Former Fort Lauderdale Vice Mayor Cindi Hutchinson turned herself in at Broward County‘s main jail Friday on 11 public corruption charges, court and jail records show.

Prosecutors charged her with accepting $14,000 worth of gifts and services from developers who received zoning changes from the city while she was an elected official. She is charged with three counts of unlawful compensation, four counts of official misconduct, and one count each of grand theft, petty theft, conspiracy to commit unlawful compensation and perjury. Prosecutors said she gave false statements to Broward Sheriff’s detectives during the investigation.”
