Dania Beach is blessed to have so many good candidates. Great little city!

First, I think it is pathetic that very few people actually showed up and voted! It is a shame and yet so many people complain about the current system.

Second of all, I am in favor of Mr. George Jason being the fact that he did what he promised me. He's the only one, along with Mr. Mcleod that went out of their way to give me information about their campaign platform and what they're intending to do with Dania Beach.

I will definitely not vote for Albert Jones and Robert Chunn, Jr. as I have not seen anything major they have done to the city. Plus the fact that they will not even return my calls or inform me about their goals for the City. Mr. Chunn said he will sent me information, so far that never materialized. Mr. Jones completely snubbed me in the process!

As what Mr. Jones stated in the sunsentinel newspaper, it's going to look like we are going to be taxed more by spending more money on all sorts of thing without business diversification. YOu see what's happening in Dania is we are accommodating all the traffic going in and out of Fort Lauderdale, Cooper City, Davie, Plantation -people that go shopping in these areas. So what kind of tax revenue Dania is getting in return - NOTHING!

It is time to diversify the business and get tax revenue coming in from different types of businesses. You can see for yourself that there are more people in poverty in Dania as opposed to Coral Springs, Plantation, etc.

As for the Fort Lauderdale International Airport, tough luck for that as no matter what we think we can do- sue them to the fullest, Broward county has already set their mind to expand the airport. Consider that- over and done with as there is no way out to that proposal, nobody can do anything about FAA - this airport expansion is going ahead no matter what. We spoke to a lot of people, agencies and authorities and it is a done deal already - just waiting for a good time. So it is just a waste to spend Dania or our tax money fighting for this. But if you guys can come up with a better maneuver against the plan, good luck!

I have to tell you Mr. Mcleod has been a conscerned resident of Dania for as long as I can remember. Not electing him was a big mistake if you ask me. I truly believe that the city of Dania is in his best interests.
