From the start, I have said that I would put the residents first. While meeting many of you and knocking on doors, again and again, the concerns about vacation rentals were at the top of your list.
After I published by position that our ordinances should be enforced, the lobbyists came into Town in full force. First it was the attack emails, then the attacks on me personally which I understand is part of politics.
For the first time, lobbyists are buying their way into our Town. Just this week they paid my opponent’s campaign $900. This weekend, your quality of life will be reduced because of untruthful robocalls.
Imagine your neighborhoods filled with vacation rentals that do not follow the rules and ordinances. That would hurt our quality of life and I will stand up to the Tallahassee lobbyists that don’t care about Lauderdale-By-The-Sea.
The campaign filings are public record and are available at Town Hall. Here’s the proof that lobbyists are buying influence in LBTS.
