Here’s The Scoop….March Elections……Yep…


Dear Readers…a few weeks ago Michael Mayo wrote an article about the March Municipal elections…and the cities and towns who will either change to November  only or retain March……He included LBTS among those making the switch to November after our  2010 March elections….

This writer gave him a call and left a message that the new commission had repealed that move on May  27, 2008 with Ordinance 2008-12 …which passed 5-0 at 2nd reading…

Mr. Mayo called me back and informed me the Supervisor of Elections still had us going to November elections…He said he was going to call the Town Clerk before he moved forward with a correction in the paper….I have seen no correction (may have missed it?)…so I decided to check with the Town Clerk…

Dear Town Manager White;
Recently I spoke to Sun Sentinel columnist Michael Mayo after he wrote an article including LBTS among those to have only Nov. elections after March 2010. I informed him this was overturned in May of 2008 and gave him the date and the ordinance number.
He called me to say the SOE office still had the Town going to Nov. He said he would call you before calling the SOE or doing a correction in the paper.
Could you please tell me if you heard from Mr. Mayo? If the ordinance was sent into the SOE? If the Town cleared it up with the SOE, if you did receive his inquiry?
I thank you for your time.
Barbara Cole

The Supervisor of Elections site does not list Lauderdale-by-the Sea for election in November.  Please check their web site.

Town Clerk
Town of Lauderdale-By-The-Sea

BC- My response….

I checked  (link below…scroll down) and it shows elections for LBTS March 2010/ Nov. 2012..but not  March 2012
which should be the next municipal elections…Please let me know if you did receive a call from Mr. Mayo and what you find out.
Thank you.Barbara Cole

BC-Response from June….

Please look again….

3/9/10 and 3/13/12

BC-My response….

Thank you for your time…I think I looked too quickly at the 11/6/12…right below LBTS in the column…instead of the header…..Was that always there or did it need to be fixed as Mr. Mayo said?…again, thank you for your response…Barbara Cole

BC-I sent a quick e-mail to Michael Mayo…and received a fast response…

Hello, I was looking for an update on the LBTS return to March elections after
the May 2008 repeal…We spoke a few weeks ago. Did you speak to the Town Clerk?
I saw the Municipal election dates were correct on the SOE site and wondered if
that was changed after your call? Was a correction put in the Sentinel?…Thank
You, Barbara Cole

hi barbara —

yes, thanks to your alert eyes, i called the town and the SOE office (which was
unaware of the rescinding of the november switch)…The SOE updated its list
after we got confirmation that elections will remain in march, and a correction
ran in the sun-sentinel on march 13…

take care and thanks

BC-My response back to Mr. Mayo….

Thank You!

BC-Response to Town Clerk…..

No need to reply, heard from Michael Mayo who gave me the answers…Thanks again, Barbara Cole

BC-Yep…. looks like we are set…March 2012…That is…. Unless we repeal the  2008 repeal after March 2010!….

more to come…
