Gentle Ben has no business being in the mean world of politics. He’s just too much of a softie. His conservative party may want him to be a bit tougher, but that’s just not in his nature. Ben just wants to help everyone around him and he doesn’t care to really concentrate on his own campaign (which is a major one) and needs an incredible amount of funding.
Monday night brought out politicians and supporters of Dr Mark Gendal as he held his kickoff celebration for his run for City Commissioner.

The event was held at La Fontana Restaurant where the rain briefly let up at just the right time for the outdoor event.
Currently a Coral Springs City Commissioner, Boccard was first elected to City Commission in 2006 and reelected in 2010.
