Here’s The Scoop … One Less Candidate For The 2012 Lauderdale-By-The-Sea Commission Race … Geesey Sends Email Dropping Out …

IT’S ENOUGH TO MAKE US ALL BELIEVERS …..

Dear Readers … the phone started ringing and the texts started arriving a short time ago this afternoon that Cindy Geesey LBTS Candidate for seat 4 challenging Vice- Mayor Stuart Dodd in the upcoming municipal election has sent an email to her “supporters” that was true to form for Geesey… (classic Geesey some would say) … It explained her reasons for dropping out of the race while making sure to include a myriad of her well-known disses aimed at those who oppose her and her pals in any way shape or form! …… This writer is joined in those “slaps” by Candidate Mark Brown and the ByTheSeaFuture paper ….. It was full of pats on her own back for all she says she has done for this town over the years and what she says she wanted to do if elected as Commission …. as the uniter of both ends of town …..(Hmmm isn’t that her chosen candidate Malkoon’s campaign edict? ) … She ended it with her “record of service” list…

Her pal former UOT president Bob Fleishman was the “Town Crier” in getting the word out asap….. a close supporter it appears he must be from the flurry of calls made to many…but we also hear as usual he played both sides of the street politically…

She cautioned her opponent Dodd in her long email after offering him her support to rid himself of this out-of-town blogger who is a “cancer” in the town… I suppose that comes from years back when this writer stood at the podium and spoke about colonoscopies and the process after going through one myself and hearing of many others who just did the same…At that time Geesey and her co-horts somehow made the ridiculous leap that I was speaking of the former Town Clerk’s mother who had cancer!… (How would I know that?) …No matter how many times I have stated the facts Geesey and a few others preferred to hang on to the ruse…

What is ahead now that Geesey is out?…

Well, the UOT cancelled their meeting tonight after hearing it was unfair to have a meeting without her in town from none other than Bob Fleishman’s wife in an email to the UOT President on the 24th followed by another email on the 28th to the board claiming he did not respond …POA President Dennis Ritchie joined her as well as Louis Marchelos…. I am told their actions were met with a big division in the organization once they were carried out by the board … Confrontations took place at last night’s commission meeting over the change and the Geesey candidacy itself ….Most likely it will lead to a further divide now that it was all for naught upon receipt of this Geesey email today and it leaves the group with some real hard choices to make (or not?) as the 2012 LBTS race now comes down to Mark Brown vs Edmund Malkoon… two of their own!..

Mark Brown has been campaigning in the south end of town and has been receiving positive feedback and responses after a first- rate mailer sent out pre- door-to-door visits while we are told Malkoon was going to the north end first with a “green”themed flier stating he is a “uniter”… No red-white and blue …One reader said the green was for no experience while others said it conjures up negatives of greenfest…. and being green…Mark has a website and Edmund has a facebook page…In a town where the new census states we are an older population just how many voters are Facebook aficionados or friends?…

Ms. Geesey threw her support to Malkoon in her email  …. Question is …will that support turn out to be the kiss of death for him at the polls?…

Who in UOT will have a Brown sign in their yard and who will have Malkoon? ….Will the UOT stand across A1A with signs this time around?…Who will be under which tent on the day of the election? … One has to surmise that the CIC- PAC who are without any candidates this time around must be finding a little bit of joy this holiday season with such circumstances in play now for their PAC foes!…

Informed voters need to make a decision this time based on the candidate’s  credentials …as well as one-on-one time they have with each and the League of Women Voters single “Meet the Candidates Night” voted on last night by the commission…

For this voter as I posted last year…it will definitely not be Geesey’s candidate Malkoon ….After watching him in action on the MPSC  (see prev. post under board categories) …He bordered on ethics violations concerning Sunshine Laws with behind the scenes emails to fellow members he sent …..In my opinion…He hit a sour note big time when he emphatically stated commissioners should not be allowed at Master Plan Committee meetings!… He proved to me that he does not have what it takes to serve in an official capacity for this town at this time …

As for the news that Geesey is out in 2012 ……

THANKS SANTA!…. JINGLE BELLS…JINGLE BELLS…JINGLE ALL THE WAY …

more to come….
