If you like what former Mayor Jack Seiler did in Fort Lauderdale, you’ll love the committee overseeing $16 billion raised by the new penny sales tax.
The tax was designed to help move people around the entire county. That was the promise to voters, who approved the tax hike by a huge 60-40 percent margin last year.
Thanks largely to Seiler, the tax oversight committee is not a cross section of Broward. The committee is a cross section of Fort Lauderdale business interests.
With billions at stake, downtown business bosses should be holding celebrations in honor of Seiler.
The former mayor was the most forceful figure on the group that named members of the committee.
