Weston rejects mediator…

looks like former RFP Town Attorney candidate Mitch Kraft will not be working as a mediator after all…

turns out he was rejected due to the discovery that the development’s attorneys involved in the dispute he would have mediated gave him campaign donations in 2006 when he was a candidate for Coral Springs City Commission seat…OOPS!

I wonder if our new Town Attorney firm donated to any candidates who ran in the last election?

Also, Mitch Kraft is married to Broward School Board member Stephanie Kraft.
