Here’s The Scoop….. Is Vice Mayor McIntee Religiously Tone-“Def” In His Bid For Re-Election? …

NO COMPARISON ….

“Koufax is also remembered as one of the outstanding Jewish athletes in American sports. His decision not to pitch Game 1 of the 1965 World Series because it fell on Yom Kippur garnered national attention as an example of conflict between social pressures and personal beliefs.”

Dear Readers… First we had the Yom Kippur fiasco… when the Town Clerk  was errant in her duties to advise the commission of this high holy day conflicting with the final adoption of the Town budget (prev. posts)………This Colon administration in true form made excuses and made false statements  to cover for the clerk…saying the Broward County Jewish Federation said this was an “acceptable” holiday and that the Jewish Federation had given them a calendar…only to have to change course and haphazardly admit that was not true when this writer contacted the Jewish Federation Community Director who was quite taken aback and called the Town that day……The Town Clerk asserted the Community Director said “mistakes happen”..We doubt that…And the later produced documentation  from the clerk further showed how poorly the she did with the material provided to her 2 years prior after another such incident occurred!… A resident came forward afterward to say he had called the Town Clerk on the matter and she was rude and then hung up on him!…BFF Jimmy-boy Silverstone put his foot in it as well…asking if this was an “applicable or non-applicable Jewish holiday”!…After this to try and  solve this quickly in full  pre-re-election mode…… Chabad of LBTS was contacted for lighting the menorah this year (it was not lit last year)…In choosing this observant Rabbi, the menorah can not be lit the first night of Hanukkah due to it falling on a Friday…..This writer wrote that it should be done by someone else who could light it on the first night…but that too fell on the tone-deaf ears of the Town…and the lighting will be on the 3rd night… Now we head into the latest installment of this debacle ….

Last night at the commission meeting… the Vice Mayor compared his Town Manager Performance Review of all 5’s given to Esther Colon to Pitcher Sandy Koufax!….OH, MY GOD!… (Yep, my God)…Sandy Koufax is not only for his pitching but for his observance of not pitching in the World Series on Yom Kippur!… YOU CAN’T MAKE THIS STUFF UP!…

VM comments- ” I wasn’t gonna bring up the Town Manager evaluation but since you threw a curve (speaking to Comm. Dodd) I gotta say, you know Sandy Koufax was a great pitcher and if somebody said how would you rate that pitcher on a one to five scale. I would say five. Was he perfect? No. Was he the best? Yep. Why don’t I say four because the guy was an absolutely phenomenal pitcher, he did everything and nobody is always right. This guy was just the best of the best.”

In this writer’s opinion there is no doubt that Town Hall East (AKA the Taco Bell Motel) is running the dais…  Protocol was ignored in an effort to appease the Jewish voters in LBTS…. We heard that the Town Chaplain was called by Comm. Clottey to inform him “We have a Rabbi for the invocations”…Then Vice Mayor McIntee approached the Town Chaplain to inform him “We have a Rabbi for the invocation”… Marc Furth also spoke to the Town Chaplain and asked him if he knew about the Rabbi for the invocation… Now that’s  CHUTZPAH !….We hear the Town Chaplain was quite surprised due to proper protocol being disregarded by these 3. When adhered to correctly it would be his duty to contact those who offer their service…. The Vice Mayor at his commissioner comments (continued below) really showed his truly distasteful colors…and  while it’s producing great fodder around these parts for his udder (Jimmy-boy-ism) stupidity and lack of sensitivity …it is also incredibly offensive, and disturbing!… Observing the after meeting dining at the Ale House of the McIntees, Furths and Comm. Clottey looks  adds to the “perception” of  what happened in this case…..It’s an ongoing event… for these 2 commissioners…

VM comments -” Now I’ve got some very good news for the Jewish community. A Rabbi has come forward we, we in the four years I’ve been up here, I’ve never seen a Rabbi come in and do our invocations. He has volunteered to come in and do it as many times as requested. He’s ah, I hear he’s a great guy. He’s got a great personality. He’ll keep GENDER NEUTRAL or however you want to say it and I hope we get some Catholic priests and some Protestant Priests and have an Iman (McIntee said E-man) who wants to come in. We need to spread it around because there’s a lot of different people in in this town and I think we should encourage this and it’s great. Our Jewish community in town has been neglected an awful lot in the last four  years and this is one way to say Hey, we know you’re out there and we support ya!”…

There’s no way around this one… It just needs to stop…now!…

more to come…..
