City Needs Residents to Run for Office in 2014 | Tamarac Talk

Stumbled upon a blog about the city of Tamarac. It is like this one as it is not sanctioned or operated by the city. But, according to City Manager Bornstein at the last Lake Worth City Commission meeting, our new Code Enforcement Manager came from there. His name is Mark Wood and he will be at the next City Commission meeting to introduce himself. I also found this about how much their elected officials make. Click title for link.
November elections are still nine months away and the city of Tamarac will have three seats on the ballot, including two on the commission as one for Mayor.  If you are a civic-minded resident that has an interest in our local government, consider throwing your hat into the ring.
These are lucrative part-time jobs as well, so it would be a shame if any of these candidates ran unopposed. For instance, a commissioner in Tamarac makes $29,000 and the mayor makes $34,000 plus each get a hefty $700 a month car allowance plus a host of other benefits as well.
Tamarac is about two times the size of Lake Worth's population at just over 60,000 and is located in western Broward County just north of Sunrise.
