Here’s The Scoop … You Just Knew This Would Happen …. Why Didn’t She? ….

Time To Step Down Commissioner Clottey …

Dear Readers … This writer walked up to Town Hall today to sit in for the opening of the bids for the sale of the Development Department trailer (ITB 09-12-01)  … As I approached the hall I saw the Director of the Senior Center sitting outside on the Jarvis Hall portico… I went to say hello…I was surprised to see him outside due to the LBTS staff Christmas luncheon going on inside Jarvis at that time.. I asked Armilio if he was invited and he told me no!… I told him he was in good company because the Mayor was not invited either!… I went on to also tell him Commissioner Dodd was not invited by the Manager until last night at 6 pm…and of course he could not attend on such short notice due to work commitments… Inside the hall was the Manager ..administrative staff and town employees…Marc and Cristie Furth…. Commissioner Silverstone as Santa (that costume must be pretty ripe by now…after Christmas- By- The-  Sea and Marie White Christmas) …BSO … AMR and the VFD… But the Director of the Senior Center was literally left out in the cold!… M.I.A. was Vice Mayor McIntee…and after asking about any “Butch” sightings…one invitee said…”I thought he’d show up as an Elf!”…The Mayor though uninvited stopped by to pick up her mail and popped in…We are told the Manager was quite cold toward her…not quite the same as when this writer observed in Town Hall Comm. Clottey come in only to be warmly greeted by Ms. Colon and told “You better hurry, they’re running out of food!”…So much for not playing politics!…

But there is something much more disturbing then the cold shoulder and the lack of a proper Town Manager  invite to the Town Christmas luncheon folks!…

Thanks to “Clueless” Commissioner Clottey…and her galpal Town Manager Colon…the Senior Center has now shut its doors to many of the people who enjoyed and participated in it for such a long time!…

You may recall from previous posts that it was Comm. Clottey who pushed the Manager to go for an RFP for the Senior Center…The Manager quickly and happily complied and assisted… She bypassed bringing it to the dais for discussion and underhandedly asked the Director to write a job description…Then she threw him under the bus when she used it to find his replacement…There was an uproar after this writer posted what they had done…Nevertheless their Mc-Gang joined along…and in the end they needed to cave …but not due to pressure from the petitions or the calls they received  from constituents…They caved from lack of anyone else swooping in for job!…At the meeting to approve the RFP the “Gang” tried to appease those angry with their actions…And the Manager was less than truthful concerning her intent of combining the Director’s duties to incorporate the recreation programs (although it is still in the contract)… Commissioner Clottey obviously didn’t think she had done enough damage …as she continued to push forward ideas that we were not complying with the criteria of what is allowed for such centers … She stated the center could only be used by seniors 65 or older and of moderate to low incomes…She also wanted excursions to plays etc…to be incorporated… The Manager said she would “oversee” the concerns of Clottey with “spot checks”…What a gal…oversight for the Senior Center…but none for the VFD!…

Armilio sent a letter to the Manager after that exchange looking for clarification on what age would be allowed. to use the facility….He received her reply…It is posted on the Senior Center door today…SADLY!…

“SPECIAL NOTICE

MUST BE 60 YEARS OF AGE OR OVER

MUST BE OF LOW OR MODERATE INCOME

MUST BE A BROWARD COUNTY RESIDENT

MUST BRING TO REGISTER-

1. DRIVERS LICENSE OR STATE OF FLORIDA I.D.

2. UTILITY BILL FOR PROOF OF RESIDENCY

3. VEHICLE TAG FOR PARKING PERMIT”

Thanks to Clottey…no one under 60 can come and participate at the Senior Center

Thanks to Clottey…no renters / Tourists who come for season can participate at the Senior Center

Thanks to Clottey…the numbers will go down…and then folks…the Senior Center with a loss in the number of participants will be told by the Manager and Commissioner Clottey….it is no longer “viable” and it will close its doors to all…no matter what your age or residency is!…
