  • I support the commissioner speech to the officer he wanted the officer to obey officials rules and conduct to work together in our community

  • I also support Tamarac Commissioner Mike Gelin's rebuke. It was not unprofessional, was not untruthful and was not combative; he merely wanted to expose the thinness of that officer's award in light of his past bad behavior! And, if someone "subjectively" finds the commissioner in violation of some Code of Conduct policy, remember, it's a policy– not a law. Policies can be bent under unusual circumstances.

  • The charges were dropped nothing said he did not commit the crime. I think the people of this area can do better for a comminisoner.

  • Not the forum, why'd he wait four years? Just because it's not followed through by the DA office, doesn't mean it's a false arrest(happens a lot). He should be removed, has no self control. Thank goodness the people decided he shouldn't be mayor.
