Shelly Lisbon from Surfside is running against incumbent Joe Gibbons from Hallendale Beach for the areas of Northern Miami Dade County, East of U.S. 1...Many Jewish people in that area. It encompasses Aventura, Bal Harbour, Sunny Isles Beach, Surfside, all the way to 88th Street on A1A. It also includes the Eastern part of North Miami and North Miami Beach (East of 1). The district also includes Broward's Eastern communities past I 595. Not a lot of population in the Broward area. There are no Republican's in this race so this one is final in the primary. Everyone votes.
According to the Miami Herald, The flyers from Lisbon have said "A Vote for Shelly Lisbon is a vote for the Jewish Community." The Anti Defamation League contacted Lisbon and said: "Appealing to voters along religious lines is divisive..." Lisbon shot back: "ADL is a despicable organization." What??? This Sheldon Lisbon is pretty scary. He is pretty much self-financing his campaign with loans from himself.
I asked Joe Gibbons for a comment on what Lisbon said:
|State Rep. Joseph Gibbons|
ACTUALLY I HAVE SINCE CHANGED MY MIND IN THIS RACE, SEE MY NEW POST AND DECIDE FOR YOURSELF.
Wait...I changed my mind again...
And Again....my mind is made up now in Post 4 on this candidate. I am back to Gibbons.
