Mayor Issues Press Release to Counter New Times BPB Story

june 6, 2006  10:40 am
Yesterday, Al Capellini, the mayor of Deerfield Beach, issued a press release charging that "those seeking to remove Larry Deetjen as city manager are feeding local press reporters a diet of distortions that are creating a wildly false impression of his long and productive tenure as mayor." New Times Broward-Palm Beach was singled out for a June 1 story by Bob Norman that the mayor claimed was full of "misrepresentations." In an e-mail to AAN News, Editor Tony Ortega promises another article will appear in this week's issue, revealing "yet another business deal that suggests Capellini used his official position to benefit his engineering firm."
