Broward Sheriff Gregory Tony and former Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness are living the carefree life. When they’re not doing a podcast, Tony and Holness are partying with Jamaican diplomat Oliver Mair. Why is the government of Jamaica so interested in Broward politics?
***UPDATE*** Holness says COVID “got to him.” He says symptoms minor thanks to being vaccinated.
Never one to shy away from the spotlight, Dale Holness is missing from his big Broward County Commission send off. Holness gave up his District 9 seat to run for US Congress. Holness was defeated by political newcomer Sheila Cherfilus McCormick last month.
Holness attended today’s commission meeting via telephone. While Broward Mayor Michael Udine said Holness was not feeling well, Fort Lauderdale Mayor Dean Trantalis said Holness has COVID-19. Trantalis appeared at the request of Dale Holness.
This week’s winner of the prestigious “Foreign Diplomat Who Loves Broward Politics Award™️” goes to Oliver Mair, General Consul of Jamaica. Mr. Mair is regular attendee of political and community events in Lauderhill, Miramar and Tamarac.
In March, Mair hosted a group of Broward elected officials and even judges at his official residence in Miami. According to a published report, “Consul General Mair commended the team of 20 elected officials and persons in the legal fraternity….for their outstanding contribution to community and national development in the United States. ‘All of Jamaica is proud of your outstanding achievements’ he added.”
He is often seen hobnobbing with elected officials such as Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness and leaders from Miramar.
Congratulations Consul Mair…
Wait, why is a foreign diplomat regularly meeting with Broward elected officials and judges?
