DAY 305 - DID HE RESIGN TO RUN?
According to their website, the "Coconut Grove Village Council is an elected body consisting of nine representatives."
In Florida, there is a law called "Resign to Run."
The “resign-to-run law” essentially prohibits an elected or appointed “officer” from qualifying as a candidate for another state, district, county or municipal public office if the terms or any part of the terms overlap with each other if the person did not resign from the office the person presently holds. (Section 99.012(3), Florida Statutes.)
Sarnoff was elected to the Village Council in 2005.
So he was ON the Council in November 2006 when he ran for the City of Miami district 2 Commission seat.
Is this a violation of the Resign to Run law?
We already know Chairman Sarnoff thinks laws don't apply to him.
And we know first hand what he is capable of.
But it's catching up...
