Isn't Burt Aaronson ALREADY retired?

Burt Aaronson, 83, has indicated he seeks to run again even though he is not a legal candidate and even though he is already collecting his pension!

In a practice called "double dipping," Aaaronson is currently receiving a state pension of $1,648 a month, or nearly $20,000 annually, while continuing to collect his $92,000 annual salary (plus lots of perks) as a county commissioner.

His defense?

"I completely abided by the laws, and rules, and regulations the legislature set," he told the Sun-Sentinel.

And to stay on this gravy train, Aaronson has announced plans on using legal technicalities to avoid the term limits that were approved by 70% of county in voters in 2002.

Please contact and thank Commissioner Burt Aaronson for his past service and ask that he retire with dignity at the end of his term.
