CORRECTION AND UPDATE

On May 22, 2008, BY THE SEA FUTURE published a news alert to its online readership which reported that Vice Mayor Jerry McIntee has contacts with lobbyist Judith Stern on both the Calypso deepwater port project and the AMR ambulance service.

A subsequent investigation by the Town attorney has concluded that Stern placed a telephone call to McIntee in conversation with the Calypso project. In a very brief conversation, McIntee advised Stern that he did not deal with lobbyists and that any contact concerning the project should come directly from the company promoting it. McIntee had never spoken with Stern prior to this conversation.

Additionally, concerning the AMR project, the investigation concluded that while Stern generally was on retainer with AMR, she was not hired to, and did not, perform lobbying services in connection with Lauderdale-By-The-Sea’s emergency medical services procurement. Stern’s only contact with city officials concerning AMR was a brief conversation in Tallahassee with Mayor Roseann Minnet, which the investigation concluded was not “lobbying.”
