Deerfield-News.com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-A recent poster to Facebook Deerfield Beach Politics says the following.

First, I think the politics here is some kind of vendetta to elect someone else into office in Deerfield Beach. You are entitled to your opinion. It does not make your opinion a fact. I don’t like them. They are misleading. They constantly state the present elected officials are spending too much money on necessary expenditures for the citizens of this city.
Second, it is very disturbing someone actually put Deerfield Beach Island in Wikipedia. There is no map if Deerfield Beach Island and it is not geographically recognized as an island. It is a barrier island of Florida that includes Boca Raton, Deerfield Beach, and Hillsboro Beach. I can put up a sign right in front of it that states, “Michael’s”; And I could declare it Michael’s Deerfield Beach Island. I’m tempted. I have the money. Between the misleading politics and the audacity to try and declare a territory as your own, I’ll be avoiding you later.

 

First, let us be clear there is a local businessman that has trademarked Deerfield Beach Island to sell stickers and other promotional novelty items. This “Buddy Sparrow” has convinced and persuaded Mayor Bill  Ganz, to put up that sign which taxpayers paid for. We reported on the cost of the sign and its installation within hours of it being installed. To the writer and poster, these are facts, not opinions. I have pictures of Buddy Sparrow with the mayor discussing this very subject they are in public from another publication. Trying to blame the DBI discussion group you have attacked the wrong “Facebook Group” you want the group run by Buddy Sparrow. DBI…….

The city of Deerfield Beach commission has become a rubber stamp for Ganz  Deerfield Beach Politics is right, and yes they as do I endorse Dan Herz for District One City Commissioner, we need him on the commission.

Certainly, you are entitled to your opinions and political beliefs. I as a reader of those pages often find I am the only liberal Democrat participating and I get some slack on my postings which are clearly marked as” Our Take” making it my perspective and opinion. That does not make it fact free. Facts are facts. I wish Mr. reader and poster you would stick around the group post your ideas engage John and Patrick I believe this group needs to hear from both sides and others to continue and grow.

Rest assured Mr. Poster this group and our little blog have worked together to expose many ugly facts of the underside of our city government. We have uncovered the water treatment plant rust issue and it was no accident shortly thereafter the city adjusted the budget to include the $14.6 million dollars in needed repairs.

THE FACT MAYOR GANZ LIED ABOUT NOT BEING ABLE TO ATTEND FORMER MAYOR ROBB’S FUNERAL AND THAT HE COULD NOT BE REACHED BY EMAIL OR TEXT OR ANY FORM OF COMMUNICATION, THIS WAS A LIE.

The fact the city underpaid employees during Hurrican Irma relief.The facts we have overpaid employees compared to the private sector and will not be able to sustain our future pension obligations to BSO and BSFR and our own employees.

Between Deerfield Beach Politics and Deerfield-News.com, we have had more sources come to us in confidence, city employees who have the information we cannot get from the outside. You do not have to avoid anyone post ………..
