Update: Eggelletion Tells Lawyer That Rumors He Will Resign Are “Bullshit”

Filed under: General News

BY BUDDY NEVINS

Rumors are sweeping through the Broward Government Center that Commissioner Josephus Eggelletion is about to resign.

Eggelletion could not be reached for comment.

The member of a local law firm heard the rumors and called the commissioner.  “He said it was all bullshit,” I was told.  

Eggelletion was not at today’s meeting.  He told other commissioners that he was absent because of the death of his father-in-law.
