Broward County PBA Members Spurn Union Bosses: Support Sheriff Scott Israel

Sometimes endorsements are not what they seem.

Case in point, the Broward County Police Benevolent Association (PBA) endorsement earlier this month of Sheriff’s candidate James “Jim” Fondo earlier this month. Apparently no-one asked the PBA members who actually worked for the Broward Sheriff’s Office before making the endorsement.

Members of the only Broward Sheriff’s Office bargaining unit represented by the PBA — roughly 40 lieutenants — broke with their union bosses this week.  The Lieutenants backed incumbent Sheriff Scott Israel.

In a May 23rd letter to Israel, BSO bargaining unit representative Lt. Jeffrey Morse said the Fondo endorsement was made without “the knowledge, input or consent of the bargaining unit members.”

Faith Based Events

So the only PBA members who work at the sheriff’s office back Israel, not the choice of their bosses.  What does that say about the validity of the union endorsement?

You decide.
