Here’s The Scoop … The Self Proclaimed Lauderdale-By-The-Sea “Uniter” Candidate For Seat 3 Edmund Malkoon Proves He’s Anything But …

PLAYING WITH FIRE!….

Dear Readers…this writer has heard over the last weeks of this LBTS campaign for seat 3 many disturbing things.concerning Candidate Edmund Malkoon …..I have posted many of them such as Candidate Edmund Malkoon’s claims concerning his opponent Mark Brown past stances on town taxes as compared to his own which turned out to be false and revisionist … I posted about Malkoon’s pandering of campaign promises made depending on whom he was making those promises to and which end of town he standing in when he made them …..I posted about his shaky at best resume both educationally and professionally ….. I posted about the claims I hear he had made concerning his leaving college with just a few credits left due to his father’s death… I thought that was suspect due to the fact that FAU is a 20 minute drive and that was in the 90’s…I now know that according to the Broward County Property Assessor’s site the house he and his mother live in was changed to his mother’s ownership due to being a widow from his father’s estate in 1986 which would make Malkoon 11 years old!… I was told by the Candidate himself there were problems with his mortgage and possible loss of his home when he attempted to run for a seat in 2010… So much for being a whiz at financial matters …I have read that Edmund Malkoon has repeatedly stated he is a longtime business owner in town …but according to Sunbiz.org  it’s a little sketchy as well as it shows he and mother also worked from a suite in a building on Atlantic Blvd. in Pompano Beach as late as 2010 … Malkoon has claimed repeatedly his Town  appointment as opposed to his opponent’s lack of such appointment…This writer can emphatically state that Malkoon was never appointed to a town board until 2010 and that committee was disbanded before the full 2 year term was up in large part because of how poorly he served…It should also be made known to voters that not only is Malkoon not receiving support from his fellow committee members with the exception of the losing former CIC commission candidate  Majorie Evans but  has also not received the endorsement or support of the very Commissioner that appointed him and was less than thrilled with Malkoon’s performance!….It was almost akin to a Saturday Night Live sketch when Malkoon used the Washington Inside moniker in describing his opponent at the LOWV Meet the Candidate Forum on Jan. 11th (prev. post) vs. his being a hometown boy… Especially when facts show Brown has been out of Washington and residing in LBTS for almost a decade…Malkoon’s Hometown Boy label has brought forth remarks north and south that run counter to the desired effect he wanted from itthough …. At the top of the list is  “Mama’s Boy” due to his apron string persona long seen from him still residing at home…. working under his mother’s broker’s license …plus a quit claim deed that made him a “homeowner”…and lacking his own car thus using Mama’s at age 36….Ouch!…

But all these facts pale though with what we are hearing this most desperate of candidate’s is engaging in under the direction of his closest confidant and mentor Cindy Geesey!… We heard a few week’s back that Geesey who is waging her own personal vendetta against Candidate Brown based on her own agenda after parting ways with the ByTheFuture Newspaper has been demonizing Brown for his party affiliation…We heard she stood up after Rep. Allen West at a Republican Women’s luncheon to rally Republicans to thwart Brown being elected based on his being a Democrat…We were told she was not expected or invited to make such remarks and was met with an uncomfortable silence as a response …That didn’t stop her though…we hear she tried this on neighbors and elected officials as well but was met once again with uncomfortable silence or indigence on doing so face-to-face… Always one to be politically tone deaf Geesey is ever thus in her handling of Malkoon’s campaign…

What will be truly mind boggling to LBTS voters who would expect such political misfires from her is that Candidate and self proclaimed “Uniter” Edmund Malkoon has made the decision to go along full throttle with this line of attack as a last ditch effort in order to get any votes it might give him in what is turning out to be one of the worst run campaigns in recent history in our town!…. Malkoon and Geesey know very well that party affiliation plays no role in this LBTS municipal race … They know that the dais now and in the past is comprised of Commissioners who are affiliated with both parties working for the good of the town and making tough decisions on important issues separate and apart from their chosen party affiliation!…..I have to wonder what the Wardlaws and Furths and Silverstone and especially Comm. Clottey as well as others inside the CIC think now that they have embraced and openly endorsed a candidate now running as a Republican in this 2012 LBTS Commission race?…WOW!….

Voters in this town say we are unique and we must hold on to the our traditions …Those traditions include keeping our candidate’s party affiliation out of our municipal races every 2 years !…

When you get Malkoon’s last ditch election materials using this calculated tactic that is anything but “unifying” in nature for our town now or in the future …throw it in the garbage where it belongs …and take a pass on voting for him…. and his “beholden ” to campaign pal Geesey!…

Tell Candidate Edmund Malkoon he is…

more to come….
