The real estate company owned by former Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness gave $1,000 to a political committee tied to Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton and the mysterious Happy Feet Advertising company, records show. On January 4, 2022, Holness’ All Broward Realty made the $1,000 contribution to Broward Vision PAC. REDBROWARD previously exposed the deep ties between Broward Vision PAC and Marlon Bolton.
In September 2019, Trace Robinson created the Broward Vision PAC political committee using the same post office box address used by businesses owned by Marlon Bolton. Florida business records list Marlon Bolton and Trace Robinson as owners of The Driven Project, Praise Experience Worldwide Outreach Church, and South Florida Theological Seminary, Inc.
Last year, REDBROWARD revealed ties between Broward Vision PAC and North Lauderdale Commission Regina Martin, another Bolton ally. On September 11, 2020, Regina Martin announced Broward Vision endorsed her campaign. “Thank you Broward Vision for your support and endorsement of our campaign..#letsrebuildtogether.”
State elections records show half of Broward Vision PAC donors were longtime Marlon Bolton donors. At least Twelve of Broward Vision PAC donors contributed to Marlon Bolton’s 2020 re-election campaign. Most of those funds were spent on businesses with ties to Bolton.
State of Florida campaign records show Broward Vision PAC paid $1,400 to Exy Consultants, a corporation created under the Happy Feet Advertising LLC name by Robinson. Exy Consultants used the same P.O. Box 451711 address as Marlon Bolton. Trace Robinson is the founder of Happy Feet Advertising.
On December 12, 2021, Broward Vision PAC paid $3,370 to Happy Feet Advertising LLC for consulting. Last month, Broward Vision PAC paid nearly $3,300 to Minuteman Press in Coral Springs and $300 to WZOP of Lauderdale Lakes.
REDBROWARD readers will recognize that these companies regularly do business with committees tied to Marlon Bolton.

REDBROWARD exposed the ties between A Better Florida For All and Dale Holness and Omar Smith, his campaign guru.
