Broward County Commissioner Hazelle Rogers wants to hire controversial Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton as her top aide, multiple sources tell REDBROWARD. Rogers won her District 9 race with help from Bolton. Last summer, REDBROWARD spotted Bolton delivering Rogers campaign workers and signs in a Plantation neighborhood. Rogers refused to answer questions regarding Bolton’s role in her campaign.
Even though he is paid to serve on the Tamarac Commission, one source claims Bolton has been seeking a government job for some time. Commission aide is a well-paid position with good benefits. One of its unofficial benefits is serving as a “gatekeeper”—the main contact with local businessmen and women, corporate leaders, developers and lobbyists.
Would these activities as a Commission aide create a conflict for Marlon Bolton as a Tamarac Commissioner? A purple bird tells us Rogers is seeking advice on whether or not she can hire an elected official.
As documented by REDBROWARD, Bolton wears many hats: Commissioner, Preacher, Political Consultant, Tamarac Post Writer. Will Tamarac voters care if he takes on another side gig?
Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton (D-Baby) spent his Saturday driving a campaign worker and planting campaign signs for Broward County Commission candidate Hazelle Rogers. REDBROWARD spotted Bolton placing a Rogers campaign sign in a Plantation neighborhood. Bolton did not seem happy to see yours truly.
Bolton returned to his black SUV, picked up a woman in a Hazelle Rogers campaign shirt and quickly drove off. Rogers signs were planted across the Plantation neighborhood. Bolton was not wearing a Rogers campaign t-shirt.
Is Marlon Bolton working for Hazelle Rogers? This would not be the first time Bolton put campaign management ahead of his duties as Tamarac Commissioner.
Did Hazelle Rogers hire Happy Feet Advertising?
Perhaps Bolton took the day off from the Elberg Mike Gelin mayoral campaign?
