It's Going to Be Another One of Those Crazy Deerfield Beach Commission Meetings

|Poitier wants to see the city manager squirm.|
According to a source with knowledge of these things, Poitier has been calling former city employees and other folks with a reason to heckle. Curious as to her reasons, I left a message with Poitier, but I haven't heard back.
Layoffs suck, but they're an unfortunate consequence of this economy, and it's not immediately clear what remedy Poitier prefers. A dramatic increase in taxes?
But as usual, her true motives are fairly clear.
Of course, Poitier also has the antidote to that poison: If she gets her way and the city stops trying to figure out whether she's been illegally profiting from public housing programs and city festivals, well, then maybe the angry mobs will go away.
But the forces of reform in the city -- Commissioner Bill Ganz and City Manager Burgess Hanson, to name a few -- have made it this far. Here's hoping they summon the strength they'll need to get through tonight.
