Deerfield-News.com-Deerfield Beach, Fl-In response to a comment made by Deerfield Beach Public Affairs Director Rebecca Medina Stewart we made a public records request. Medina stated that the 175 k the sponsors were paying to sponsor The Big Buck Festival was significantly less than what the city paid to Rhymes. So we inquired as to how much did the city pay?
Today we received a copy of the contract and the city has in fact paid 30 grand to Busta Rhymes for thirty minutes, not bad work if you can get it. Of course, this is nothing compared to what sponsors paid according to Medina. We will not mention that this event was held simultaneously with early voting and caused voters to be turned away, something Medina and the Mayor and City Manager need to explain, still.
