Sheldon Lisbon Announces Candidacy For House District 100

Wednesday, June 6th, 2012

Sheldon Lisbon, currently city commissioner of Surfside, has filed to run as a democrat in House District 100. The new district hugs the coastline and takes in many of the beachfront condos, home to mostly retirees from the Northeast United States.

“This new district shares many common interests and I know I am best able to serve the citizens of House District 100,” said Lisbon.

Lisbon taught American government and economics in the D.C. public school system for 36 years. He and his wife also ran a small business in the Silver Spring, Maryland area. Since relocating to Florida in 1996, he has been active in many local associations, was president of his synagogue, and is currently a part-time teacher at three high schools in the area.

Lisbon plans to bring his small-business experience to Tallahassee to create more jobs, with special focus on targeted job training for our unemployed and underemployed. He also will dedicate himself full-time to fight for seniors who deserve high quality healthcare.

“It is time our community has someone who will speak up for the taxpayers instead of the lobbyists,” he said. “My pledge to the voters on August 14 is that I will work tirelessly for the residents of Florida, not the special interests in Tallahassee.”

Miami Hatzalah Recruiting Members

Thursday, April 26th, 2012

Miami Hatzalah members assist firefighters at accident scene.

Miami Hatzalah is looking for new members who work or live in the areas of Surfside, Bal Harbour or Bay Harbor and Aventura. The group recently held an open house presentation in Surfside to help accomplish this goal.

Hatzalah is currently introducing an exciting new online EMT class which is new to Florida. It allows participants to take parts of the EMT requirements online.

For more information, to volunteer, or to contribute call Zalman Cohen at 305-986-0096.

Hatzalah of Miami Dade, Inc, is a volunteer not-for-profit organization. Its primary mission is to save lives by providing basic life-support services in those vital first few minutes of an emergency until an ambulance arrives.

Surfside Welcomes New Commissioner Sheldon Lisbon

Thursday, April 5th, 2012

Sheldon “Shelly” Lisbon was sworn in recently as a new commissioner in the town of Surfside, Florida.

Lisbon was born in 1946 to Holocaust survivors in a displaced persons camp in Germany. At the age of three he sailed from Europe with his parents, starting a new life in America.

Sheldon Lisbon being sworn in as Surfside commissioner.

Lisbon is the quintessential American success story. He graduated from Boston Lubavitch High School, going on to study at Yeshiva University, the University of Maryland and Catholic University where he received advanced degrees.

He and his wife, Miriam, ran a successful Judaic gift and bookstore in Maryland for 25 years. They have a married son and daughter and seven grandchildren.

Lisbon is also an educator and has taught AP United States government, world history and economics since 1970. The couple moved to Surfside in 2006. They both teach in yeshivot in North Miami Beach.

Lisbon had served on Surfside’s planning and zoning board since 2010. The only negative effect of his new position is that the popular president of Young Israel of Bal Harbour has had to resign his position in the shul. It could have been construed as a conflict of interest.
