Update April 17,2012

Today The PBA and City deliberated on the motion to dismiss filed by the City of Hollywood on the 185 Law Suit. After 30 minutes the Judge stated she was going to take the matter under advisement. The decision is pending.



Update Monday, 4/16/12

Reminder for the motion to dismiss, filed by the City of Hollywood on the PBA 185 lawsuit will be heard tomorrow in courtroom 1020 at 1100. This will be in the judges chambers unless members show up and then the judge will move it to a courtroom. The PBA is predicting we will be in the courtroom.

The PBA will be attending two campaign kick offs this week for candidates who will be challenging incumbents for Hollywood Commission in November. We will keep you posted.

Great job done by the Hollywood PBA executive board for the PBA picnic yesterday. great food and fun.


On saturday, 3/31/12 the culture of the Hollywood Police Department, sworn and civilian, once again displayed unity and dedication to each other by coming together for J.J. This event broke all previous records which clearly indicates the members spirit and benevolent nature has not been broken by irresponsible commissioners. You only have to look at the  character of the volunteer committee and the monies raised to know how special J.J. is to HPD.

Thanks to Hollywood Fire as well as Pembroke Pines for their generosity and participation.

Update: April 5, 2012

PERC issued a “Notice of Telephone Hearing and Prehearing Order” to the Broward PBA for an evidentiary hearing via telephone on May 4, at 0900 in room 215 at Hollywood City Hall. This is related to the ULP filed by the Broward PBA for the city’s action taken for 2012.

PBA attorney Rhea Grossman sent a PRR (public records request) for emails on the re-elect Dick Blattner campaign sent to email addresses. The motive is confidential at this time.

Also Blattner saw Justin Serian Tuesday at a civic association meeting  and demanded he remove his name badge indicating that he is running for commissioner against Blattner. Serian nicely told him to F/O and Blattner moaned to Sheffel, who was also at the meeting. 

Jeff Greene, resident and chairman for the GE pension plan, openly advised the group that changes to the pension plan MUST be made to be competitive. Serian and several other residents told the manager at this meeting that city employees need should be made whole. There were no negative comments made by these residents against the PD.

Recent endorsements: Mike Satz for State attorney, Geoff Cohen for Circuit Court Judge, Tim Bailey for Circut Court Judge,  Martin Kiar for County Commission and Kristen Jacobs for Congress.
