Broward Elections Supervisor Brenda Snipes may have the title.
Her long-time Chief of Operations Fred Bellis actually runs much of what goes on the elections office, I am told.
In the past year Bellis has expanded his job description. Now he is also working to get Snipes re-elected.
He shepherds her to campaign stops. He makes calls for her. He raises money.
All while Bellis remains on the Supervisor’s payroll.
Although not unusual in politics, Bellis’ dual role as a government employee and campaign strategist illustrates Snipes’ administration, her opponent David Brown charges.
She is ethically challenged, Brown says.
Brown has made Snipes’ ethics a campaign issue.
