Sources says Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter (D-Booby Trap) pitched a fit when she showed up for her joint candidate interview with The Miami Herald. Ms. Ritter thought it was going to be a one-on-one interview. The Herald guys said joint interviews are always held. Ritter stayed but announced she was doing so “under duress.”
Ritter touted the new courthouse as a tourist attraction, saying people go to Italy to visit buildings(!?!?!)
Ritter and her opponent, Robert “Bob” Sutton (R-Teacher of the Year) are running for Broward County Commission District 3.
Chill the Martini & Rossi Asti Spumante, Russ. It’s going to be a long night in the Parkland.
Broward County Commissioner Stacy Ritter spent $5,000 on a comedian. No joke. In her latest (amended) financial report, Ritter lists a $5,000 expenditure on Stewie Stone, c/o the New York Friars club. Stone provided some laughs at Ritter’s King’s Point campaign kickoff.
For the period covering April-July, Ritter reports raising just over $12,000 while spending $20, 398.78.
