Mayor Michelle Gomez took the oath of office Tuesday afternoon at a packed ceremony in Tamarac. Gomez defeated Elberg Mike Gelin earlier this month. Also taking the oath of office were two new commissioners, Kicia Daniel and Morey Wright Jr.
Tamarac Vice Mayor Elberg Mike Gelin is truly clueless when it comes to reading the pulse of his constituents. Last month, REDBROWARD revealed that Gelin co-hort Commissioner Marlon Bolton (D-Big Baby) wanted voters to give him $350 contributions on his birthday. Residents from across Broward contacted us to register their outrage over a politician asking for money on his birthday. So what does Elberg Mike Gelin do?
Gelin used social media to ask voters for contributions on his birthday.
Gelin offered a better deal to voters during these tough economic times. While Bolton asked for $350 to $1,000 from voters, Gelin asked for a mere $48 on his forty-eighth birthday.
Why not make a donation to a local charity? Or perform 48 hours of community service?
Guess this is the result when you take campaign advice from Marlon Bolton?
Gelin is running for Mayor against popular incumbent Michelle Gomez.
