Fort Lauderdale City Commissioner Dean Trantalis is not happy.
Here is Trantalis when elected to a three year term just a few months back, beating incumbent Charlotte Rodstrom by just 18 votes.
But since then, Trantalis has been upset with a number of positions the Fort Lauderdale Commission has made, and is making no bones about it!
The latest decision by the Commission that has made Trantalis angry is Galleria Landings.
The proposed condo on the banks of the Middle River passed the Planning and Zoning Board by an 8-0 vote, but Commissioners have a right to "call up" the proposal for review and have the last say.
Trantalis made that motion at the last City Commission meeting, but could not get any of his fellow Commissioners to second his motion.
" I called up the matter because I do not believe the issues of neighborhood compatibility were properly addressed."
" the decision not to call up [Galleria landings] is nothing less than a mockery of the process, and a fraud upon the people of this city"
"If the Commission is not listening to the people, then who are they listening to?"
" I know the people are on my side"
Commissioner Trantalis is not happy.
I'll keep you informed .... Tim
