BILL GELIN FOR BOG 2021!

I got crushed!

Congratulations to Jay Kim, the winner.

All election results are below.

Turnout was higher than the last contested election, but with still close to 6000 abstains, this is definitely not the type of election one can win by simply blogging and sending out some emails, as I did. It takes pressing the flesh, which my opponent did, at least early on before the pandemic really got going.

Oh well. It’s nice to know Jay had to earn it this time, campaigning instead of going in unopposed, like the vast majority of his 51 colleagues on the BOG typically do. In the future, maybe he’ll simply professionally and politely respond to emails if myself or another constituent sends him one, and possibly avoid a challenge. Live and learn, as they say.

In any event, thank you to Dan Lewis from PoliticalStrategies.com and Craig Agranoff from PoliticalConsulting.com for the solids on the campaign emails, and to all of you that read here and voted. I am truly touched.

Lastly, I hereby announce my candidacy for BOG in 2021. Thank you in advance for your continued support. Together we can reform the Florida Bar!

    There may be too many not voting but its a lot more than usual. They worked hard to turn out the vote for Kim to keep Gelin out. Its good to keep up the fight.

    Bill- Not to shabby. You’ll get it in 2021. You definitely weren’t crushed. Gave Kim a serious run for his money.

    Almost 700 lawyers voting for Bill’s rather stark message concerning corruption at the Bar.

    Will anyone take notice?

    Or is it more of the same??

    What does Kim have to say?

        He didn’t debate because The Bar is indefensible. If he had debated and given a forum for exposure besides Jaab he would have lost not only a debate but an election. He was smart on that. He looks bad for ducking a mano a mano challenge but its better to look silly to a few overall than to lose.

    Now everyone in the courthouse knows who Jay Kim is and that there’s something called the Board of Governors .😀.

    You’re fighting a rigged game, Bill. You stop the palm oiling, backslapping and brown-nosing and there’s no room except for fellow greasers.
    They don’t want to clean up their act. Just perpetuate it.

    So glad that you lost asshole. Really got crushed too! What a joke. Guess having a stupid slam book blog doesn’t mean shit with people in the real world. Don’t waste your time running for anything ever again. You are and always have been a complete loser. Go Jay Kim!

    Bill, maybe you can add your crushing loss (bawhahahaha) here to your resume for the Harry Gulkin award next year. I mean, with you amazing trial win record, scholarly law articles, juvenile online slam book blog, and many judicial recommendations, I am sure you would be an easy winner next year! Early congratulations you big legal stud you!
