Former Mayor Gets Special Parking Privileges for his Gas Guzzler

When you're the former mayor of Coral Springs, you can park anywhere you damn well please.

Must be good to be the king. I mean the former Mayor of Coral Springs.

At the annual Pinktober Spaghetti Dinner on Saturday night, former Mayor Roy Gold couldn’t park way out in the sticks and walk like the rest of us commoners.  No, Gold made his very own spot right in front of the police station because after all, he was a former mayor, and dammit, why should he risk getting his Jaguar XJ door pinged, even worse,  have to walk?

I’m not complaining that the former Mayor has one expensive ride, but we’re talking the “Environmental Mayor” here.  This is the guy that sits on the Neighborhood and Environmental Committee, Adopt A Mile, Adopt A Street, Broward Beautiful, Broward Waterway Cleanup and he’s driving this gas-guzzler that gets 15 MPG in the city.

Hey Roy, I’d figure an environmentalist like you would be driving something a little more, well…better for the environment.

    Bet he was trying to park as far away from the K-9 unit as possible!

    I don’t see any signage indicating that the spot is illegal. Is it possible that he just happens to know the City well enough that he knows where to park close to places like the fire station where he probably spent some time?

    Is Local_Lawyer really suspended lawyer and political do-boy Nick Steffens???

    This is what you call reporting. Wow what a waste of time and (“talent”?)

    Roy Gold it a nit wit and will always be a nit wit. I’m sure he was trying to sell that terrible spot cleaning product that he and the brother that hates him sell.

    It couldn’t have anything to do with his many health issues, could it? I mean, you forget he had a brain tumor and I thought cancer. Maybe he couldn’t walk as far as other people.
