Trantalis files for Fort Lauderdale mayor

From The Miami Herald's Naked Politics blog:

Dean_picDean Trantalis officially filed Monday to run for mayor in Fort Lauderdale in 2009.

He formally kicked off his campaign at ArtServe Monday evening. Trantalis, the city's first openly gay city commissioner, served one term between 2003 and 2006. He decided not to run for a second term.

In a speech Monday, Trantalis talked about his desire to lower property taxes, fight crime and overdevelopment while embracing the city's diversity. He offered no specifics regarding how he will lower taxes other than forming a task force to attract new industries.

The other candidates who are competing to replace term-limited Jim Naugle are City Commissioner Cindi Hutchinson, attorney Steve Rossi and State Rep. Jack Seiler. Rossi is the only Republican in the non-partisan race.

Dean Trantalis is corrupt. During the 80's he was in trouble for bad deals in his title company. He continued working with criminals setting up deals and acting as the middle man.He has helped criminals launder money and transfer properties using his escrow accounts. Bad news!He has no respect for the law! Say no to Dean!
