BCPBA Endorses Tim Ryan For Broward County Commission

The Broward County Police Benevolent Association has announced its support for Tim Ryan for re-election to the Broward County Commission, serving District 7, in the General Election on Tuesday, November 8, 2016.

A lifelong resident of Broward County, Ryan was first elected to the Broward County Commission, representing District 7, in November 2012. He was elected Mayor of Broward County by his fellow County Commissioners in November 2014, after serving as Vice Mayor the previous year. District 7 includes the cities of Dania Beach, Lazy Lake and Wilton Manors, parts of Davie, Fort Lauderdale and Hollywood, and the Broadview Park neighborhood in unincorporated Broward County.

Before his election to the Broward County Commission, Ryan served for eight years in the Florida House of Representatives, from 1998 – 2006, before leaving office due to term limits. During his time in the legislature, Ryan focused on legislative initiatives to protect consumers, improve public education, enhance accountability and ethical standards for elected officials, and protect our state’s environment and natural resources.

Ryan has been active in a number of community service organizations, including the Dania Beach Improvement Committee, the Fort Lauderdale Jaycees, the Broward County Guardian Ad Litem program, the Hollywood Rotary Club and the Ft. Lauderdale Emerald Society. He has earned recognition while serving as Special Counsel for the City of Dania Beach for the past 25 years, and received the Florida Teaching Profession “Friend of Education” award and the Florida Bar President’s Pro Bono award for his volunteer services.

Ryan and his wife, Debbie, have been married for 27 years, and live in Dania Beach. They have four children – Johanna, 25, Brendan, 21, Colman, 16, and Catriona, 13.

PBA’s Step Pay Plan Legislation Is Officially Filed

PBA’s Step Pay Plan Legislation Is Officially Filed

By Matt Puckett
Executive Director, Florida PBA

We are happy to announce that Florida House Representative Dave Kerner has filed HB 621 on our behalf creating a step plan for all First Responders employed by state government. The plan creates a career development path for First Responders. The Legislation does not specify any particular type of career plan. Instead it will be up to each bargaining unit (if applicable) and agency to negotiate a career plan … this law will only mandate that one shall exist for First Responders.

The PBA has also indicated to the Department of Management Services that we intend to submit career plan proposals to each respective agency during upcoming negotiations. These proposals will have the fiscal impacts attached and are intended to be used in conjunction with Representative Kerner’s career development legislation. We will actively pursue both the career plan legislation and our proposals for step plans during the upcoming 2016 Legislative Session.

Until next time, stay safe.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
DATE: November 10, 2015
CONTACT: Jeff Marano, 954.584.7600

Fort Lauderdale, Fla. – With the vitriol and threats of violence against law enforcement at an all-time high, the President of Broward County’s largest police union has called on his membership, as well as all of those that support the police, to patronage Wings Plus in Coral Springs, Fla., as a result of the backlash the proprietor is receiving for his public support of law enforcement.

The owner, Brian Walsh, Sr., recently posted a letter on Facebook he received complaining about the hanging of a banner at his establishment that read, “Wings Plus Supports All Law Enforcement God Bless America!”

“This is just another twisted, cop-hating Broward resident who unfortunately echoes some of the same sentiments as several of our local elected officials grandstanding for votes,” said Jeff Marano, Broward County PBA President.

The letter, written anonymously, stated that since Walsh “support(s) killing and murdering law enforcement” this customer will “choose to support local businesses that stand for what’s right.” The letter writer added, “At a time when police officers are killing innocent and unarmed men, women, and children in this country, your message to the world made your personal views loud and clear.”

Wings Plus is located at 9880 West Sample Road.
