PB: Rumor Mill
Did Mayor Stanczyk file an ethics complaint against the village attorney?
More than one person has commented publicly and privately to SDM that the Mayor did in fact file a complaint against Village Attorney Eve Boutsis and the new council majority of Tim Schaffer, John Dubois and Patrick Fiore.
SDM Says: This has to be a joke. Now the Mayor is ratting out village staff? If true, this just proves someone needs to get a life.
Former candidate Peter England has announced for mayor, again
Peter England ran against our current mayor three years ago and lost despite garnering lots of support and losing by a narrow 82 vote margin. (Check out PB: When Winning is not Enough for a discussion of the 2010 clash.)
SDM Says: We appreciate your willingness to serve, Mr. England, but shouldn’t someone else have a chance? Maybe someone like David Singer, for instance?
David Singer feted by the Miller brothers
Keep an eye out for the latest edition of the Palmetto Bay News. SDM received an advance copy of the story (which was also covered by Eugene Flinn’s South Dade Updates) and they are treating Mr. Singer – rightly – as a potential savior for the village.
SDM Says: We have published several of Mr. Singer’s comments as full-blown posts because of his thoughtful analysis. We’re not ready to start tooting his horn until we learn more about his governing philosophy and plans for the village, but if he runs, SDM will be paying very close attention.
