Here’s The Scoop … It’s A Sign …. Some Don’t Want To Upset Mama Bear…

FORGET THOSE GREEN MALKOON SIGNS ….

THIS SIGN MIGHT BE MORE ACCURATE …

Dear Readers …in a previous post I asked if this was the first staying neutral race for commission in LBTS …I have now been informed by quite a few of you that indeed it is …. but not for the reason I previously posted of voters feeling there was no real difference between the candidates for seat 3… It seems that Candidate Edmund Malkoon’s campaign is being run by his mother who appears on his treasurer reports as his treasurer…I am told it is Edmund’s mother who is calling around for her son to be allowed to come to condos to speak….It is Edmund’s mother who is calling and asking residents that her son’s signs be put in their front yards and it is because it is Edmund’s mother who is putting these voters on the spot that they are playing the neutral card by either taking the Edmund Malkoon signs and putting them up or taking the Edmund Malkoon signs and putting them out of sight with no intention of putting them up out of some sort of deference for the candidate’s mother rather than the support of the candidate himself!…On top of that some of the Edmund Malkoon signs put up are now down with no sign being put up to carry on the neutral stance or as a few have done being replaced by his opponent Mark Brown signs after further review and/or discussions with voters not beholden to Edmund’s mother thus having second thoughts … At the Palm Club the Edmund Malkoon signs were also put up after a call and we are told they have now been removed after several Palm Club residents were angered by the signs being put up without their knowledge and approval …We hear that happened at other residences in the north as well by way of yet another Malkoon supporter who last claimed to have led the way for the big win in 2010 … A claim that was met with snickers throughout town…Hmmm…shades of LBTS elections of the past…. sign up …signs down…and claims of foul play!….

Edmund Malkoon is a 36 year old man who has chosen to run for a town commission seat and while his mother whom he lives with should by all means be helping him as any mother would…It is just mind boggling and ridiculous to this writer to think that so many voters cannot  seem to muster up the ability to tell Mama Bear that while they respect her position as a Mama Bear they must decline due to their non support of her candidate cub…

This election should be based on a cub and a Mama Bear really believing the cub candidate is owed seat 3 because the cub was passed by in 2010 for Candidate Sasser …This election should be based on a cub who is running his campaign as he would have had it been 2010 stating the cub is a “Uniter”… This election should be based on a cub stating in his campaign materials that he “Majored in International Finance and Marketing” at FAU but not stating whether he received a degree in his major or had a career in his major…This election should be based on whether the cub’s election materials claim of being a LBTS  business owner (Real Estate) is a licensed real estate agent or not…This election should be based on the cub’s months sitting on the MPSC and what the cub did or did not do …(previous posts under the archives “boards” categories cover those meetings ) …. This election should be based on the cub’s non-support by those who sat on the MPSC with him…This election should be based on the cub’s not being elected to the Chamber of Commerce Board in 2010 as a member of the Chamber …This election should be based on the amazing lack of contributions made to the cub in his two Treasurers Reports…( $1,240.00 )….This election should be based on the cub’s debate with his opponent on Jan. 11, 2011 as well as this cub’s answers in the ByTheSeaFuture, Pompano Pelican and Sentinel on the issues …http://www.facebook.com/pages/Edmund-Malkoon-For-Lauderdale-By-The-Sea-Commissioner/275622512477657

This election should be based on what the cub’s opponent Mark Brown has offered up in his election materials of his education (Graduate of George Washington University), his career (newspaper reporter and Chief of Staff to two Washington Congressmen), his volunteerism (volunteered his time at BTSFuture to be the Editor), his support ( includes present and past commissioners, fellow board members, neighbors, past colleagues)  his contributions ($10,065 in 2 Treasurers Reports), his debate answers, his newspaper interviews which are all in sharp contrast to this cub ….. in this writer’s opinion… http://markbrown2012.com/

This election should NOT be based on the cub’s mother …Be neutral no more voters!… Stand up and show your support for your choice of candidate for seat 3…No growling allowed!….
