Why Is George Soros’ PAC Endorsing Coral Springs Commission Candidate Nancy Metayer?

Controversial billionaire George Soros is no stranger to funding far-left groups and candidates all over the world. Soros is a major player in U.S. politics with his funding of progressive and Democrat candidates. Over the last decade, Soros has funded lower level campaigns on local level such as Secretary of State races and district attorney races in big U.S. cities.

In August, REDBROWARD revealed George Soros’ Win Justice PAC backed Joe Kimok, a far-left Democrat running for Broward State Attorney. Kimok was beaten by Harold Pryor who faces off against Republican Gregg Rossman next week.

In September, REDBROWARD revealed George Soros sent close to $7 million dollars to a small corporation in Fort Lauderdale to help mold Broward County politics.

But even with all the money he sent to Broward, it appears George Soros finally dipped his toe into municipal politics with his backing of Nancy Metayer for Coral Springs City Commission.

Why does a far-left billionaire with the ear of global leaders care about Coral Springs politics?

Soros’ backing would explain why 90% of Nancy Metayer’s campaign contributions come from progressive sources outside of the City of Coral Springs.

This includes support of far-left politicians like Broward Mayor Dale Holness, Tamarac Commissioner Mike Gelin, Plantation Councilwoman Denise Horland and Hallandale Beach Vice Mayor Sabrina Javellana.

Earlier this week, Nancy Metayer refused to discuss her plans to “defund” the Coral Springs police budget.

George Soros is a key funded of the “defund the police” movement.

Could that be the reason?

Coral Springs voters deserve answers before Tuesday November 3rd.

Nancy Metayer Doesn’t Want To Discuss Plans To Defund Coral Springs Police Department

City Commission candidate Nancy Metayer did not want to discuss her plans to “divert previously allocated funds from” the Coral Springs Police Department aka “Defund The Police.” REDBROWARD tried to interview Metayer, a far-left climate scientist, at early voting on Monday. Metayer produced a campaign video denying claims she called for defunding the police.

The Coral Springs Fraternal Order of Police (FOP) provided handouts to voters highlighting Metayer’s radical views on police reform as well as her support from outside progressive sources.

Earlier this month, REDBROWARD revealed nearly 90% of Metayer’s campaign contributions come from sources outside the City of Coral Springs. This includes contributions from Black Lives Matter (BLM) leaders, progressive groups and left-wing politicians such as Broward Mayor Dale Holness, Tamarac Commissioner Mike Gelin and Plantation Councilwoman Denise Horland.

In her video, Metayer claims to be the “public safety” candidate. Metayer told REDBROWARD she would not take funds from the police budget but instead from a capital improvements fund. Metayer refused to discuss the matter any further.

Last week, the Coral Springs FOP produced a video of Nancy Metayer speaking at a June 17, 2020 commission meeting.

Metayer said she wanted to “divert funds previously allocated to [Coral Springs Police Department].” She said the funds would be used to hire unarmed crisis workers.

Does that sound like “defund the police” to you?

Far-Left Candidate Nancy Metayer Reports Just Eight Coral Springs Residents Contributed To Her Campaign In September

Nancy Metayer, a far-left City Commission candidate, reports just eight Coral Springs residents contributed to her campaign in September. Metayer, a Democrat, raised $8,744 in September from eighty-two contributors. Just $393.60 was raised from Coral Springs residents. While Metayer did report contributions from two Coral Springs businesses, most of her campaign cash came from far-left politicians and activists.

Earlier this month, REDBROWARD exposed the far-left push to control Coral Springs city government.

In 2019, Metayer, a “climate justice organizer,” placed second in the Coral Springs Mayor’s race.

Metayer’s 2019 mayoral campaign received numerous contributions from progressive groups like Common Voices, Alliance For A Better Community, FLIC Votes, SEIU and Ruth’s List. None of these groups are located in Coral Springs. Metayer had the support of controversial politicians like Broward Dale Holness, Tamarac Commissioner Mike Gelin and Hallandale Beach Vice Mayor Sabrina Javellana.

According to Metayer’s 2019 campaign reports, only 30 contributions came from Coral Springs. Over 90% of her 304 contributions were made from people and groups from outside Coral Springs city limits.

In a stark contrast, Metayer was defeated by Scott Brook who received 53 percent of his campaign contributions from Coral Springs residents.

As of September 2020, Metayer reports 597 contributions to her city commission campaign. Just 71 contributions come from Coral Springs residents. Outsider contributions make up nearly 89% of Nancy Metayer’s support.

In September, Metayer received a large contribution from Burnadette Norris Weeks, the former attorney for Broward Supervisor of Elections Brenda Snipes.

Metayer received support from Fort Lauderdale Commissioner Ben Sorensen and Sarah Leonardi, the newly-elected School Board Member for Fort Lauderdale. She received a check from a fellow candidate on the ballot, Jennifer Andreu of Plantation.

Metayer picked up a contribution from Desmond Meade of Ovideo. Meade is a well-known Florida Felons Rights leader.

Earlier in the campaign, Metayer received contributions from Tamarac Commissioner Marlon Bolton and Plantation Councilwoman Denise Horland. She received campaign support from failed Broward State Attorney Joe Kimok, who wanted to decriminalize hard drugs.

Metayer received funding from Dwight Bullard and the New Florida Majority political committee which is conducting operations in support of Joe Biden and the Democrats. She received contributions from Ithohan “Stephanie” Ighodaro whose “Hard Knock Strategies” received $6 million dollars from George Soros’ Win Justice PAC.

Metayer received numerous contributions from politicians calling for defund of the police like Hallandale Beach Vice Mayor Sabrina Javellana and Mike Gelin of Tamarac.

Metayer received support from Jasmen Rogers-Shaw, a founder of the local Black Lives Matter (BLM). Metayer attended several BLM/Dream Defenders protests this summer.

But Metayer is not the only Coral Springs candidate with backing from the far left.

STACKING THE CORAL SPRINGS COMMISSION

In 2018, Joshua Simmons, a Broward school teacher, beat incumbent Coral Springs Commissioner Lou Cimaglia. Despite being a political novice, Simmons managed to collect nearly $32,000 in campaign contributions. Simmons received contributions from MoveOn.org, Emerge (Emgage), and Latino Victory US. Simmons had the financial support of politicians like Rep Alcee Hastings (D-FL), Rep. Elijah Cummings (D-Maryland), Broward School Board Member Rosalind Osgood, and Broward County Commissioner Dale Holness.

None of these politicians represent the City of Coral Springs.

According to the reports, more than 75% of Josh Simmons’ campaign contributions came from outside the City of Coral Springs.

Simmons used Holness Consulting, a company owned by Damara Holness, as his campaign consultant.

In the 2019 City Commission race, candidate Khurrum Wahid showed numbers similar to Nancy Metayer. For the June 18, 2019 seat 2 election, Khurrum Wahid reported 202 total contributions. Only 21 of the contributions came from Coral Springs. Ninety percent (181) of Wahid’s contributions were made by entities outside Coral Springs.

Why are progressive groups and outside interests flooding Coral Springs elections with money? What do they want in return? What happens to the Coral Springs Police Department if Simmons and Metayer try to “defund the police?”
