City Commission sets June 28th as the date for the special election for Mayor.

End of qualifying is set for May 31st and begins May 24th.  I did not hear the meeting myself but apparently Dee McNamara says that "people" are threatening Laurence - trying to get him not to run.  If anyone cares to elaborate, please do so under comments.

Wes,

DISCLAIMER: This is just my opinion. I do not state this as fact nor do I have any prior knowledge of any evidence that would lend itself to the veracity of this opinion. This is not a test. To me this is classic and very unoriginal I dare add, political posturing so that Laurence can then say "At risk to my own personal safety I am running for Mayor of Lake Worth because I care about this city". Unless there is a police report about threats made that is all I see this as. The circus has begun once again.

Another unsubstantiated rumor- I heard he was threatened that if he ran, everything he has done over the last 10 years- and I mean EVERYTHING would be made public.
Looks like we get a 40 something year old unemployable anarchist to run the city.

I am hearing it was said in light of his running against Jo Ann for the Commission seat!

Dee told the city commission that Lawrence was threatened by annabeth Karson and Laurel Decker that they would destroy his campaign if he ran against Golden.

Cara is 33 or 34, not 40-something. Larry would only threaten to run for Golden's seat if he knew there was some reason she wouldn't be able to run/get re-elected. Either he knows something about that the public doesn't know, or more likely, he wants to run again for Mayor.
