Candidate District 4 Commissioner
Herman Robinson is raising money for his campaign. To date, he has received $12,622.68. But guess who some of his contributors are besides the "normal" residents who always support that side of politics?
Delray New Wave LLC: $500
Located at 10 SE 1st Avenue, Delray Beach gave a fundraiser for Pam Triolo when she was running one year ago. They are also registered at 102 N Swinton Avenue in Delray. Right down the road is Hudson Holdings at 20 S Swinton Avenue--Connect the dots.
Yesterday, while at breakfast at Clary's Corner, Herman said that he thought Hudson Holdings should sell the property and did not want to see them in LW. If you recall, Mr. Robinson was chair of the Historic Resource Preservation Board that gave Hudson Holdings the waivers they wanted to build high and allowed a zoning change favorable to Hudson Holdings at the Gulfstream property.
Jetport II, LLC: $750
This company has the same corporate agent as Delray New Wave. JetPort is one of Sun Recyling's many companies that was acquired by Waste Management. Do you remember how Southern Waste Systems infiltrated our local elections back in 2008 and Retha Lowe was fined $2,500 for filing false reports regarding them? She got off lightly--this was a small price for her to pay for these days of honest services fraud. Sun companies have been lurking around our politics for years with campaign contributions to certain candidates that they feel are favorable to their cause.
Waste Management: $250
They were given our roll-off business for commercial and residential in August 2015 and connected to the above. Garbage is a dirty business.
Candidates say things that they believe you want to hear, not necessarily what they believe. Herman Robinson said that he thought candidates should be running on the same amount of money...an even playing field if you will. I have always said that as I believe it would limit the special interest donations as well as corruption in our democratic process. You still have to connect these dots.
