WATCH: Broward Commissioner Hazelle Rogers Refuses To Answer Questions About Hiring Marlon Bolton

Broward County Commissioner Hazelle Rogers introduced herself to her constituents at Wednesday’s Plantation Council meeting at City Hall. The newly-elected Rogers even introduced her staff that accompanied her. But Hazelle Rogers did not want to discuss her newest staffer, Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton.

Last week, REDBROWARD revealed Rogers wanted to add Bolton to her growing staff in District 9. All staffers’ paychecks are funded by Broward taxpayers. Bolton already collects a hefty paycheck courtesy of Tamarac taxpayers.

Rogers refused to answer why she wanted to hire Bolton. She did not answer questions regarding Bolton’s role in her County Commission campaign. Rogers was silent when asked about the mysterious Delaware company known as “Purple Bird Communications.” Last year, REDBROWARD exposed how the Rogers campaign have tens of thousands of dollars to this mystery company.
