Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

At Broward IG Selection Comm. meeting, former Broward State's Attorney Philip S. Shailer was invited to be fourth member of five-person committee

Former Broward State's Attorney Philip S. Shailer was invited this afternoon to be the fourth member of a five-person committee that will select an independent Inspector General, an office created by Broward voters in November.

Current members Timothy Donnelly, Sam Goren, Jan Jacobowitz and Shailer will select a fifth and final member at the next meeting and together must select an IG by March 12th.
Next meeting is Tuesday the 15th at 3 pm in Room 422, the Broward Commission Chambers.

Personally, I would like to see at least one non-lawyer on the selection committee.


At the end of the meeting around 5 p.m., there were four people in the audience: Broward activist/gadfly Russell Setti, an attorney from Goren's firm, a reporter and... me.


It was an underwhelming start to say the least for Broward's new anti-corruption era, but a baby step is still better than the woeful status quo.


More on this tomorrow, hopefully with photos and video.
