Here’s The Scoop

so just who is the new Town Attorney?

let’s see the Vice Mayor was not happy with the first law partner Mr Weiss offered…

he was a developer friendly attorney who represented a developer who came before the previous commission…so strike him out….

no more RFPs… the Manager wanted to get her team together and move on….

Tuesday evening the Weiss firm came to what appeared to be a done deal….

brought forth the replacement for Mr Gabriel….the dismissed candidate……by the Vice Mayor…and now past Special Magistrate….

a new guy steps forward…young and boyish…

Dan Abbott…LBTS new Town Attorney….

voted in 3-2…the Town Manager’s recommended choice…the Vice Mayor made sure to add that point into the minutes…

2 days later… I decide to Google….Dan Abbott…Florida Attorney…

what comes up…

1st Google….Hollywood..City Attorney…advised convicted former Commissioner Keith Wasserstrom on how to fill out the forms that led to his conviction…. advised him… saw no conflict…

Former Hollywood City Attorney. Dan Abbott……another Google….

asked during an eminent domain case what constitutes a proper reason to take private property…

our new Town Attorney Dan Abbott…according to the Google article…. DID NOT HESITATE IN HIS RESPONSE

……….ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT…….

which is a legitimate public purpose according to the United States Supreme Court!

No wonder The Mayor and the Editor of the Futures were so enamored with the choice of the Town Manager…

but Vice Mayor…Commissioners…CIC members….

I think differently….what “homework” did the Commission do on our new Town Attorney?……..

Comm. Dodd and Clottey were correct to ask for more RFPs… they needed a 3rd Commissioner to join them….

Wasn’t this the same Commission meeting that each Commissioner at Commissioner comments…

stated they do not believe in eminent domain?

Now what?
