Here’s The Scoop … All Is Forgiven … Welcome Back “Broom Boys” …

WELCOME BACK “BUTCH” ….

Dear Readers … The CIC had their “Caribbean Christmas Party” tonight …and unless the “Truth Deflector” was flying solo in her the car parked out in front of Leisure Mar Condo Beach Clubhouse it looks like the CIC has quickly forgiven Vice Mayor McIntee for running for Chief of the VFD!… He was joined by his BFF Commissioner Jimmy (He’s not a nice guy) Silverstone’s who parked at Town Hall East two cars down from Commissioner Clottey…..and BTSTimes Editor/ Campaign Manager/Candidate  Crisite Furth was seen walking toward the event across the road…..Hugs all around? …No surprise really, the Furths and the McIntee’s have certainly been down this road before…. Peas in a political pod…

What a turn of events this week ……In the Pompano Pelican today, writer Judy Vik wrote about the VFD election held last Monday night …(prev. post).. On page 7 were some very telling and honest comments made by newly  re-elected VFD Chief Bob Perkins concerning former Deputy Chief Jerry McIntee …”He blindsided us all and disappointed all of us with that move,” ‘Perkins said. For three months McIntee had been saying he was stepping down from being a VFD officer. ‘…. continuing on page 11… Perkins stated ” I wish he wasn’t such a mean-spited person”… The article also addressed the reaction of the community…”positive feedback from the community and town commissioners”…And something the VFD probably will be stunned about …the positive remarks made by those that McIntee has long tried to convince the members would take them down if he [McIntee] were not in charge…former Commissioner Clark ” I wish everybody well and want them to continue to do a good job”…Louis Marchelos ” They made their choice for leadership,. I feel they made the right choice. It was a secret ballot, but I heard it was a landslide.”…and Bob Fleishman Chair of Unite Our Town ” The will of the fire department has spoken. It’s a great day for the VFD”… and as for the Vice Mayor “McIntee could not be reached for comment.”… OUCH!…

So who was so willing to sit down with the “Broom Boys” tonight? …Are these CIC members aware of the plotting and planning (prev. post) by McIntee and Silverstone to try and undermine the department?… Will the CIC still back McIntee and Silverstone for another run at 4 more ears now that the VFD has thrown down the gauntlet?…

After all, if the men and women of the VFD would not vote to support McIntee for Chief, why in the world would the CIC back him and why would they think the voters will vote him in for 2 more years as Mayor or 4 more years as Commissioner?…

From what this writer hears all around town… they wouldn’t…

Bye, bye “blacksheep”…Bye, bye….

more too come….
