CAUGHT ON VIDEO! Broward School Member Rosalind Osgood Making Bogus Partisan Claims Against Laurie Rich Levinson Opponent

The Laurie Rich Levinson campaign is desperate to turn her non-partisan Broward School Board race into a politics-as-usual smear campaign. One of Levinson’s biggest backers is her fellow school board member Rosalind Osgood. While campaigning for Levinson at the West Regional Library in Plantation, Osgood posted multiple live videos on Facebook.

In one video (since pulled down) Osgood makes multiple claims that Levinson’s opponent, Dr. Richard Mendelson, is telling voters he is a “proud Republican.” Candidates in the non-partisan races are not supposed to discuss their party registration.

Just one problem. Mendelson wasn’t in Plantation. Also, Mendelson doesn’t discuss politics with voters. The Mendelson campaign repeatedly states this race is not about partisan politics.

REDBROWARD obtained a video of a Broward voter asking Mendelson supporters about his party affiliation. “I don’t vote for Republicans,” the voter said. The supporters included Ray and Johanna Feis, the younger siblings of slain Marjory Stoneman Douglas hero Aaron Feis.

They repeatedly tell the Davie voter that the race is non-partisan.

In a final desperate maneuver, a Laurie Rich Levinson supporter approaches the trio to tell her Mendelson is a Republican. The supporter was identified as Daniel Levinson, the son of Laurie Rich Levinson.

Laurie Rich Levinson Begs For Partisan Help In Late Night Plea To Local Democrats

Since early voting started last Saturday, Laurie Rich Levinson and her Broward Teachers Union (BTU) supporters have desperately tried to make the School Board District 6 race into a partisan contest. Levinson and the BTU begged voters to cast ballots based on partisan issues like guns and union support. Her opponent, Richard Mendelson and his supporters have constantly told voters that school safety and protecting our children is not a partisan issue. Last night, Mendelson released a campaign video driving home the point.

A majority of early voters seem to buy Mendelson’s non-partisan pro-safety argument. For this reason, the Levinson campaign has grown increasingly desperate. Levinson’s husband Neil Levinson screamed in the face of Coach Aaron Feis’ sister while a BTU leader laughed when Feis’ family discussed his ultimate sacrifice protecting students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas. Even though the Levinson camp has been aggressive, they have repeatedly call local police to the voting sites in Weston and Davie.

Levinson and her team have been rattled by Mendelson supporters who lost family on February 14 at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School telling voters to support Mendelson.

The Levinson campaign is so desperate for support, Laurie Rich Levinson sent a 2am email begging for help. The email was shared with a who’s who of Democrats, including office holders and party leaders.

The email was even shared with Laurie Rich Levinson’s mother, Broward County Commissioner Nan Rich.

My opponent is bringing people in from outside the district to attack my record and misinform voters.

I need your help to fight back and ensure that voters know what I have achieved for our students on the School Board.

Election Day polling locations in my district are in Weston, Davie, Cooper City, Plantation, and Sunrise.

I remain committed to making Broward’s public schools among the best anywhere. And with your support and volunteer hours, I’ll continue to do just that!

Laurie Rich Levinson Shuns Voters For Country Club Lunch With Fort Lauderdale Business Leaders

Campaigning for office in August is never easy in Broward. Voters are scarce. It’s close to 100 degrees with 100% humidity. Lunch consists of warm Publix subs and lukewarm bottles of water. And desperate candidates call the police on their opponents.

On Friday, Laurie Rich Levinson took a break from getting mad at her opponent’s supporters to have a nice fancy lunch at the Weston Hills Country Club. While Andrew Pollack stood outside the library telling voters how his daughter was tragically murdered at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in February, Laurie Rich Levinson picked up a meaningless “person of the year” award from the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce.

Pollack is a strong supporter of her opponent Dr. Richard Mendelson.

The Chamber’s Sawgrass Awards luncheon honored Levinson, Weston Mayor Dan Stermer and the Florida Panthers. The $85 per person lunch was sponsored by big corporations like Autonation, Bank Of America, BB&T, FPL, Broward Health, Stiles Construction and many others. The sponsorship packages started at $5,500.

Imagine if all that money was used to make just one Broward school safer.

Let’s hope the Laurie Rich Levinson redshirts don’t find out the boss was dining in style while they shoved down Whopper Jrs in a library parking lot.
