Lowry Comes Out of Hiding to Run for Broward School Board

by Javier Manjarres

Earlier this week I heard a rumor that  former failed Congressional candidate Robert Lowry was thinking about submitting his name for consideration to one of the vacate Broward County School Board Commission seats. The rumor caused me to chuckle a bit, so I felt compelled to call up to Tallahassee and try to confirm this rumor. Apprently the rumor is true. Lowry has submitted an application for one of the vacant School Board seats.

During his failed 2010 Congressional run,which he lost in the primary, Robert Lowry managed to single handedly embarrass the Republican party both at the state level and federal level. Lowry’s claim to fame was the infamous ‘DWS’ shooting range incident where he and his campaign manager Chris Leggatt scribbled the initials ‘DWS’ on a target, and then proceeded to shoot at it-all while in the presence of the Sun-Sentinel newspaper. Do I need to tell you how stupid of a move that was?

Lowry said he didn’t know who wrote Wasserman Schultz’ initials on his target, but said he knew they were there before he started shooting. He initially described it as a “joke,” but after answering several questions he said it “was a mistake” to use a target labeled “DWS.”Sun Sentinel

Not only did Lowry lie about his knowledge of who wrote the initials on the target, Lowry enlisted a supporter to further his lie and state that he saw ‘some activist’ write the initials. To this date, Lowry has not taken full responsibility for his actions at the shooting range that night.

During his mismanaged and poorly funded campaign, Lowry was able to leave his mark (more like a scar) on Broward politics with his propensity for gaffes and missteps that only the most novice of political operatives could make.

Here are some of his greatest campaign hits:

Robert Lowry nets $152 in campaign account after campaigning for more than a year(Chad Lincoln was the campaigns Finance Chairman).

Robert Lowry and his Nursing homes named in a lawsuit.(Still pending)

Robert Lowry lands himself in some hot water with The Heritage Foundation.

Robert Lowry Equates Government and Taxes to Herpes.

Robert Lowry’s campaign hit with numerous FEC notices for failing to file.

Is Robert Lowry the choice for Governor Rick Scott to consider for the School Board position, and will his past conduct and ethics the muster that is needed  in filling a School Board Commission seat? You be the judge.

    He does not deserve a seat – is there anyone better? our children are the future as the the song goes.

  • CD22 all over again

    How does he plan to keep the seat if he is appointed? Is he expecting to be able to raise money to run? How? Surely NOT by having that waste of time Chad Lincoln be his “Finance Chair” again? If that clown makes a living as a financial planner he sure wouldn’t with any of MY money!! HAHAHAHAHAHA

  • Red Tea

    Yes there is someone better and his name is Chris Zadie. Great Republican and Conservative with a child in public school. He probably won’t get it though with the way politics is plyed in this county with even our own Rep elected officials. But with a real strong Gov like Scott there is hope.

  • Rose Rauschkolb

    BREC should get behind Chris Ziadie, a family man, smart and enthusiastic. He would make a good Broward School Board appointee. Chris ran for County Commission seat in the last race, his first time running for office and he lost. He received little support outside his local Republican Club. BREC should encourage these Republican candidates with media support and in any way they can. OH yes,I remember BREC did support another County Commissioner’s campaign whole heartedly. YES…we are glad we now have a Republican in that seat. But, wouldn’t it be nice to work to have MORE Republicans in these positions. Maybe if the County Republicans would quit fighting among themselves for self-power-promotion and band together we could accomplish this. Take back Broward County…what a goal!

    As someone who follows local county politics Rose is right. I am following the Dave Thomas replacement situation very closely but am also interested in the countywide appointment also. I did not know that Ziadie was seeking. I saw that Chip had unfortunately endorsed Alston for that seat and for many obvious reasons found that very disturbing. I hope that Chip does not show his face at the next BREC meeting. Ziadie is the most qualified for that seat and I hope the Governor turns a deaf ear to the self interested politically motivated pleas of people like LaMarca. Alston is unqualified, others are qualified, but Ziadie is the most qualified.

  • Jay Narang, President SWBRO

    Chris Ziadie is a true conservative family man with the right values to lead at Broward County School Board. His lovely daughter is in the school system. He is Vice President at SWBRO, a successful business analysis consultant, a talented man, understands the local political dynamics to win the election and keep the seat. I fully support Chris’ candidacy and ask every Broward Republican to get behind Chris. I am very hopeful that Governor Scott will listen to the opinions of local grassroots leadership and appoint Chris.

  • Mark C.

    Chip is a clown. He wanted Alston as part of deal to save his own wine soaked ass. He doesnt even care about Chris Z or any other Republican. He has his crew of young fat asses running around town trying to make deals for Chip. hope they choke on theyre honey

  • Electric Jack

    Chris is the best choice all that Lowry is is a spoiler …..Chris ran a great honest campaign and had the entire southern half of of the BREC behind him 100%.. Chris is a natural leader a man among men. He is our real White Cowboy Hat Wearer that we need so desperately in this county..Chris would be a great addition to the GOP leadership. He is a true asset to the SWBRO a leader leads not with cute computer displays but with WHAT HAS TO BE DONE LETS GO GET IT DONE ATTITUDE!. I watched Chris day in and day out go out and walk the pcts of Miramar, Pembroke Pines, Weston day in and day out without much help from the other part of this great group of people. He was to me personally a never ending shinning star of help and knowledge in my personal political run for office……Yes there is life south of 595 a lot of life , love, and patriotism and Chris personifies that personally and family wise…a man I am proud to call a friend in deed not in words…..but actions…
