Broward Mayor Stacy Ritter and County Commissioner Ilene Lieberman are best friends.
They share meals. They share fashion tips.
And their families share lobbying clients.
While Ritter’s husband Russ Klenet was lobbying for Fort Lauderdale dialysis tycoon Mark Ginsburg, so was Lieberman.
It’s more evidence of the entanglements between lobbyists and Broward County commissioners.
Two articles in The Miami Herald April 19, 1998 and May 14, 2002 identify Lieberman as a lobbyist for Ginsburg’s clinic.
But excuse me.
It wasn’t Ilene Lieberman lobbying for Ginsburg’s clinic. It was Ilene Michelson, because she used her married name in Tallahassee.
