One Last One on Trantalis/Rodstrom Race

     Caldwell Cooper, owner of Cooper Properties, the largest apartment house operator in the city,  is crying foul.

    ......  During the tumultuous political campaign between newly elected Commissioner Dean Trantalis and former Commissioner Charlotte Rodstrom, Cooper received this Code Citation from the City.

     The notice instructed Cooper to remove the Trantalis political sign he had posted on one of his properties just off Las Olas on SE 2nd Court, saying it was too large.

     He called the Code Inspector, Ursula Thime, to inquire. Cooper said he was surprised when Thime told him the complainant was not other than Charlotte Rodstrom herself!

     Cooper said the "kicker" was that Rodstrom has the exact same size sign just a block away - 


     Trantalis gets sworn in as the new Commissioner Tuesday. at 11:30 am.

    What a small person she is...pathetic,actually.

    I really want her to remove her signs,as in some parts of the city, there are several of her signs in one small area- looks like sign pollution!
    Perhaps she should spend some of that rich campaign donation kitty to hire someone to take her signs down- as soon as possible!

    Did you expect any less? Shameless serve-serving Char & John will continue to attempt to punish those who did not support her (them).

    Dean, if you want, we can sage/cleanse the commission office and dais!

    Let's move forward with Commissioner Dean Trantalis! Together, we can do anything!

    Getting elected is never easy. Rules are rules. One thing some of you-do not be fooled by the pretty face,(Char) she is also no joke. Lets move on. One thing to point out is Buddy Nevins "Broward Beat" header that Mayor Seiler worked behind the scenes to make sure Dean Trantalis won, and Charlotte lost. I am glad that he pointed out that he had nothing to do w/ that. See Mayor Seiler when you kept reminded the residents from the Dais about the astronomical cost of the District 2 election(constantly) it was a no brainer why "some" people thought that it was a dig towards Mrs.Rodstrom. My perception is that the Mayor was as flabergasted as I was-Although one would think it was a dig towards Charlotte, it wasn't. I mean almost 250g, come on. This was substanchiated when the Mayor demanded an Audit by his Auditor Mr.Herbst. Again Charlotte Rodstrom did not come up w/ that total Dr.Snipes 'henchmen did. I will tell you one think Dr.Snipes that figure better be right and to the penny. Maybe this figure (250g) is accurate-will see, after the audit. Does Dr.Snipes care, I don't think so, she will just reimburse Ft.Lau. Will see. Her staff down there from the "moose" to the "obese"(take a wild guess who I am referring to-how about the lawyer who got a cancelled check for payment-where's your big mouth now) , they do whatever they want .. Election is over the residents have spoken, lets again move on.Lastly Tim I would have liked to attend the "pre-agenda" but I work until 6- so it was the timing.
