Far-Left Councilwoman Denise Horland Preferred New York City To Plantation During Covid-19 Pandemic

Plantation Councilwoman Denise Horland, a far-left progressive Democrat, said she preferred New York City’s onerous response to the COVID-19 pandemic to life in Florida. Horland made the stunning declaration during a September 2021 trip to New York City. She took to social media to state she felt “safer” in New York City than “back home” in Plantation. Horland said she “happily” provided vaccination cards to visit public places.

In her Twitter post, Denise Horland wrote, “I am currently in NYC. We’ve (happily) had to be masked and show our vaccination cards at several restaurants, museums and theatre. No issues. NY positivity rate: 3.31%, FL 16.8% Sadly, we feel safer here than back home in FL.”

While Horland felt “safer” in NYC, numerous restaurants and small businesses went belly up. Former NY Governor Andrew Cuomo allowed seniors to die by the thousands in retirement homes and hospitals. Families were not allowed to comfort each other in person. But hey, at least Denise Horland felt “safer” when taking in a Broadway show or two.

Sure, Horland and her Democrat allies dislike Governor Ron DeSantis. But would any objective resident really say New York handled COVID-19 better than New York?

How does Denise Horland explain the mass exodus of New York residents and businesses to Florida?

Horland’s appreciation of New York’s COVID rules may explain her support of radical new laws for Plantation.

Horland is pushing a progressive agenda on Plantation businesses like a plastic straw ban, a ban on single use plastic containers and even forcing installation of electric vehicle charging stations.

Last month, Horland told the Sun-Sentinel she wants Plantation to hire a unelected, bureaucrat to run Plantation instead of a mayor.

Does Denise Horland and her staunch ally Nick Sortal really want to turn Plantation into New York City?

Someone should alert all the new Plantation residents who escaped from New York about Horland’s dangerous scheme.

Broward State Attorney Wannabe Says He Wont Prosecute “Quality Of Life” Crimes

Joseph Kimok, the “progressive” candidate for State Attorney, wants to usher in a “new generation of justice” in Broward County. Based upon his recent comments, Kimok’s radical criminal justice reform platform would keep the Broward Jail empty. Last week, Kimok told Broward Democrats it was time to discuss the decriminalization of hard drugs like crack cocaine, heroin and meth. Kimok even endorsed the legalization of “sex work.”

On Facebook, a local resident asked Kimok for specifics about his criminal justice reform plans. Kimok responded with a litany of progressive ideas like ending cash bail, mandatory minimum jail sentences and “stop-and-frisk.” Kimok said he would stop arrests for drug possession and stop seeking search warrants for drugs. Kimok criticized the death penalty and vow to reduce life without parole sentencing.

Kimok said feeling safe means “being safe from violence and being safe from police and the [criminal justice] system.”


In his Facebook response to the voter, Joseph Kimok promised to “stop charging ‘quality of life’ and poverty based crimes. What does this mean? Is this the mother stealing bread and milk from Publix to feed her kids? Is there an epidemic of these cases?

According to a left-wing organization, “The term ‘quality of life’ is thought to have first been used in a policing context in New York City in the early 90s….refers to a practice of heavily policing a number of normally non-criminal activities such as congregating and/or drinking in public spaces, as well as minor offenses such as graffiti, public urination, panhandling, littering, and unlicensed street vending in public spaces because, the argument goes, if left unchecked, they will lead to an explosion of serious crime.”

Kimok’s radical platform parrots the plans of other progressive state attorney candidates across the United States.

Last week, Chesa Boudin, a far left radical, was elected District Attorney in San Francisco. In his victory speech, Boudin mentioned “quality of life” crimes.

“We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes,” Boudin said. “Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted. Many of these crimes are still being prosecuted; we have a long way to go to decriminalize poverty and homelessness.”

Kimok appears to be a big fan of Chesa Boudin.

Does Joseph Kimok plan on reshaping Broward in the image of San Francisco?

What happens if drug users set up camp along Las Olas or A1A?

What if tent cities pop up along Sistrunk Blvd or Weston Road or Holmberg Road?

What if drug users shoot up heroin in the playground at the Museum of Discovery and Science?

What if drug users defecate at the entrance of the Center for Performing Arts or the Sawgrass Mills Mall?

Would Kimok accept “poverty” as a defense to all crimes?

Would State Attorney Joseph Kimok prosecute anyone in Broward County?

REDBROWARD reached out to Joe Kimok for a definition of “quality of life” and poverty based crimes. Kimok did not respond to our request for comment.
