Bill Lewis’ Facebook Meet Up Attracts Big Crowd In Coral Springs


Despite torrential rain, a Miami Heat game and even Dancing With The Stars, the second Bill Lewis Facebook Family And Friends Meet Up was a huge success. While the final numbers aren’t in, the attendance is sure to surpass the 150 people that came out last month. Lewis, the host of the popular “The Credit Report With Bill Lewis”, hosted the non-partisan get together at Wings Plus in Coral Springs.

Many notable politicians, candidates and celebrities stopped by including Coral Springs Mayor Roy Gold and Parkland Mayor Michael Udine. Local community activist Essie “Big Mama” Reed was one of the stars of the event, as was Credit Report guest host Carlos Reyes.

Several members of the Broward bench enjoyed the wings as did judicial candidates Rhoda Sokoloff and Roshawn Banks. School Board candidate (District 4) Louis Kushner came by to meet the public.

Robert Sutton, Broward County Commission candidate (District 3) was on hand, but there was no sign of his opponent Stacy Ritter(D-Cheetah III). State House Candidate James Gleason was there meeting his future constituents.

Lewis’ event overshadowed the much smaller School Board campaign kickoff being held in a corner of the restaurant.

Lewis said he would continue to hold these events because it allows the public to meet each other and the movers and shakers of Broward county.


Another GOP Candidate Jumps Into Race To Face Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Out Of Touch)


The already crowded GOP field vying to take on Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-Out of Touch) just got a little more crowded. Bill Lewis, host of The Credit Report With Bill Lewis WSBR 740AM, broke the news that Gineen Bresso will announce her candidacy for US CONGRESS CD-20. Ms. Bresso will compete for the GOP nomination with Ozzie DeFaria, Juan Eliel Garcia, Joe Goldner, Karen Harrington and Joe Kaufman.

Here is some background on Ms. Bresso from Lewis’ story at RedState.com:

“Former presidential appointee and elections attorney, Gineen Bresso, is set to announce Monday her candidacy to represent Florida’s 20th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives.

Bresso, 39, is challenging Democratic National Committee Chair and incumbent Congresswoman Debbie Wasserman-Schultz.

‘I am prepared to work to restore fiscal responsibility, remove barriers to economic growth, and take the voice of the people to Washington D.C.’ stated Bresso. ‘Currently, the nation is facing significant troubles with a debt in excess of $15 Trillion and a staggering $1.1 Trillion deficit.’

Bresso was nominated by President George W. Bush and confirmed by the U.S Senate on October 2, 2008 to serve on the U.S. Election Assistance Commission (EAC).

In 2009, Bresso served as Chair of the EAC. In contemplation of a Congressional run, she resigned recently after asking President Barack Obama to withdraw his nomination of her to serve a second term.

Prior to her appointment to the EAC, Bresso served as the Director of Legislative Operations and Counsel for the Committee on House Administration in the U.S Congress. Previously, she served as a policy advisor to former Maryland Governor Robert L. Ehrlich, Jr., and worked as an attorney-advisor for the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office, where she reviewed and processed applications for federal trademark registration.

Bresso has also served as a judicial law clerk for the Honorable Arrie W. Davis, in the Maryland Court of Special Appeals.

Bresso received her Juris Doctor from Western New England College School of Law in 1999 and her Bachelor of Arts in political science from the University of Massachusetts at Amherst in 1995.”
