My goodness I remember when Dale Holness the real estate owner was running for office worried about wasted money ,and about the mistreatment of people how soon we forget.If Haywood Benson pays for his own trip he is constant with what he said.both of these man are not poor by any means.I find it hard to believe that they will go to Paris strictly for city busness.besides that if France or the builder wanted the project they would pick up the tab ask Ed Portner in tamarac

Juan Ortega liar and a piece of crap.

Good.....when they get back in town, they can join the folks over in Cooper City for some more free meals, and free booze!! Just have the taxpayers pay for it!! Why don't the tax payers start paying everything for these slimeballs!! Why no just pay for the toilet paper they use to wipe their fat a_s_s with, The Kleenex to blow their snotty nose, some wife/girlfriend/mistress to get lipo, and fake t_i_t_s!! Let's see what else can the people foot the bill for....... groceries, CD's, nights on the town, cruises, vacations, nights out at the Hard Rock.....

I would like to know where I can get a copy of those e-mails. Where did you get them, or did you just make it up? By the way, if you cancelled your subscription, you still read the paper. Don't you? You are now.

If you didn’t get the emails you weren’t on Mayor Kaplans email list.
If anyone is really interested in reading the emails responses I will post them on here or on Lauderhill blogspot site.
This hasn’t generated much interest because the story was pretty much buried in the news.
I had to dig to find anything about this Tap Tap City project.

I see now that the article wasn;t buried. I checked it out. I was wrong. Maybe the Commission is right. I'll watch and sea. I only got a couple of e-mails and there are plenty I am sure I didn't see.

To Quote Mayor Kaplan--------
"The area under proposal for Tap Tap City is part of Carrishoca, which is privately owned."

Why should our city precious city resources be used to finace a trip to help benefit a private business.
