McElyea is, and always has been, a scum bag dating way back prior to the time he shot that young boy and found a way of getting off on the charges. Why the people in Dania continue to vote this jerk into office is beyond comprehension. I hope the opposition pushed forward with their intended legal action.

I received only one flyer from a legit candidate and one other warning about a candidate taking big bucks from special interest. I received NOTHING from government about the election. It makes the entire election process seem like a sham.

The special interests win and the people lose. Only a few lines about each candidate in the SS. I wonder how anyone made a reasonable choice on who to vote for. Some election.

I can't wait to see high rises springing up on the beachfront in Dania, just like hollywood and hallandale what beach.

Dania needs to wake up and stop voting back in the old people that have ruined Dania. It is sad to see the manipulation and fear that is instilled in the residents, especially the neighborhood by the airport, most of them are paranoid and angry and are told not to trust any newcomer. Bob Mikes and Jay Field made fliers and passd them around about Duke that were full of lies. McElyea mail piece and the one against Duke are identical on the bottom backside. She is right, it has the same font, even same mail house and union bug from Image Plus Graphics. It must have been expensive to do and McElyea and his crooked towing company probably paid cash for it to someone. Duke had a lot of support and won despite the endless attacks against him. Hankerson was blinded sided too, by scared and small minded people who don't want their golden goose touched. Too bad, time to review the ordinance that talks about our towing contract and send this guy to jail.

In Plantation, "unknown" wealthy manipulators, mailed postcards slandering a sitting councilman inorder to elect their chosen candidate that had been bought and paid for. Ask the Mayor, she knows all about it.

as you leave the airport the 1st city you enter on A1A is Dania, that entire strech should be looking like a jewel, instead of a a slum , nice lasting impression, perhaps thats the reason the airport keeps expanding south

Whoever put out the flier on Duke deserves a medal for attempting to expose the "click" and special interest group behing the candidate. He never lived in our city or served on any board to begin with until Lisa Young and Anne Castro talked him into running. Hankerson was the better of the two, he deserved to win.

AMEN
Lisa is just upset that he won't be Mayor, Just like her can't win an election even with $61,000.00 from the Developers. Dukes should'nt have been on the ballot to begin with, He knows nothing about Dania other than what Lisa told him. She is just a manipulated.

You can tell by these posts nobody cares about this little city.

..WHAT DOES YOUNG know about ethics ? She is a legend at city hall with her goings on ,no surprise she got her boyfriend endorsed by the firefighters ! I doubt the firefighters wives or an ex-police chief wife would endorse anybody related to her !

cant we all get along Lisa? You throw mud in Mac's face and now he will have something against you when Walter is up on the commission seat. Lets get with whats at hand here. Dania Beach and the lack of revitilization. Dania is a dump and looks like it too. We are in the hood, street closures, boarded up buildings, grafitti, and people diving in dumpsters to get food behind Winn Dixie constently.
I remember that

Mac shot the guy in his junkyard because he was stealing car radios. His son yelled at the kid and the kid pulled a gun out and pointed it at his son. Mac took the shot and got the kid. Nothing wrong with that. Kid was in the wrong.

Duke had no business running for commissioner. He has never lived in Dania or served on any boards in Dania. He moved in after he started collecting campaign money. He is a puppet for Lisa Young. She never lived in Dania either until later this summer! She owns rental property. Big deal. They need to give it up. He came in 3rd Lisa. Live with it. It isn't nor will he ever be Mayor of Dania. He was backed by special interests and he will pave over Dania Beach in a heart beat. Lisa has started up her own development company. She doesn't care about anything in Dania except how to make money for herself.

....It remains to be seen whether Lisa or Anne Castro starts putting the self-serving real estate deals together.Good campaign con-job on the public by AC as she adds Duke to her other two stooges Charcoal Jones and Burnt out Anton !

Lisa is too busy getting Walters puppet strings attached to him to post here. She will control what he says and how he votes. I give the marriage 5 years tops. When they going to buy a house here and pay taxes instead of renting. Seems stupid to rent the house out on Southwest 9 St and rent a condo on Sheridan Street. Whole thing is totally strange!
