Chatter concerning Mike Satz’s possible retirement in 2020 has reached fever pitch.
Today the SAO was abuzz with a rumor that Satz will indeed throw the towel in, and give Sarahnell Murphy the nod.
Murphy, for her part, did not pick up her cell when called, and did not respond to a text message asking for confirmation or denial.
Another rumored hopeful from within the SAO, Tony Loe, did not respond to text or a voicemail.
Jack Seiler did not return texts, but sounded like a definite maybe after he was reached for a brief conversation earlier this evening.
Mark Bogen gave a 150% “not happening.”
Brian Silber stated:
“It is something I am seriously considering, but have not made a decision about yet.”
Because it is known Silber has been calling around town putting out feelers for support, we asked if he would run against Satz in the event the incumbent did not retire. In response, Silber declined further comment.
Teresa Williams, who came very close indeed to beating Satz last time around, will run again, whether or not the seat is vacant.
“I believe that I am the best person to bring criminal justice reform to Broward County. I will be running for State Attorney.”
That’s it for now. Post a comment if you know of anyone else rumored to be considering a run, or have more information on Satz’s intentions …
COMING SOON – Diaz v. Alcalde!
