NOW GOING TO OVER 13,200 READERS IN FORT LAUDERDALE!!

IT’S WAY PAST TIME THAT WE THE VOTERS SEND A MESSAGE TO THE CURRENT MAYOR:  STOP WASTING OUR MONEY!

IN HIS FOUR YEARS AS MAYOR, JACK SEILER HAS:

1. CONTINUED TO HAND OUT PAY RAISES AND BONUSES TO ALREADY OVERPAID CITY BUREAUCRATS.

2. RAIDED OUR CITY’S SAVINGS ACCOUNT TO PAY FOR THESE OUTRAGEOUS PAY INCREASES. TO DATE HE’S TAKEN OVER $40 MILLION FROM OUR SAVINGS ACCOUNT!

3. WHERE MOST CITIES ARE CUTTING BACK ON EXPENSES, HE HAS ACTUALLY INCREASED THE COSTS TO US TAXPAYERS BY INCREASING THE BUDGET BY $75 MILLION!

4. AS MAYOR, JACK HAS MORE THAN DOUBLED THE NUMBER OF CITY BUREAUCRATS RECEIVING MORE THAN $150,000 IN ANNUAL COMPENSATION; FROM 163 TO MORE THAN 320 PEOPLE!

5. HE’S DONE NOTHING TO MANAGE OUR CITY’S PENSION COSTS! OUR PENSION LIABILITY NOW APPROACHES $1.2 BILLION. OF THAT AMOUNT, ALMOST $400 MILLION IS UNFUNDED! THAT UNFUNDED AMOUNT IS INCREASING EVERY DAY, AND WILL SOON BANKRUPT OUR CITY!

5. HE DITHERED FOR MORE THAN TWO YEARS BEFORE FINALLY GETTING A NEW CITY MANGER TO OPERATE OUR CITY. ONCE A NEW CITY MANAGER WAS FINALLY SELECTED, HIS POOR NEGOTIATING SKILLS ENDED UP PROVIDING OUR NEW CITY MANAGER WITH A LIFETIME EMPLOYEMENT CONTRACT; THAT’S A LIFETIME EMPLOYMENT CONTRACT!

6. AFTER FOUR YEARS, HE STILL CANNOT ARTICULATE A VISION FOR FORT LAUDERDALE.

7. HE HAS BROUGHT NO NEW INITIATIVES TO THE COMMISSION OR TO OUR CITY; HE HAS DEMONSTRATED A TOTAL LACK OF LEADERSHIP. EVEN HIS COLLEGE PRESIDENT AGREES (IN HIS WRITINGS) THAT JACK SEILER IS NOT A LEADER.

8. JACK SEILER IS A CAREER POLITICIAN. HE IS USING OUR CITY AS A STEPPING STONE TO HIGHER POLITICAL OFFICE. HE BOUGHT A HOME IN FORT LAUDERDALE ONLY AFTER HE WAS ELECTED MAYOR THREE YEARS AGO.

If you feel that our City should stop wasting your money, you need to tell Jack Seiler!

Send him an email: jack.seiler@fortlauderdale.gov.
