Broward, FL, hospital commissioner a no-show
Florida Gov. Charlie Crist appoints commissioners to hospital districts in Broward to oversee tens of millions of taxpayer dollars that go toward taking care of the poor, but one commissioner hasn't shown up at a single regular board meeting in almost two years. Shane Strum last participated in a South Broward Hospital District board meeting in June 2007, and that was by telephone, according to meeting minutes. And he missed at least two meetings before that date, too, which is the oldest listed on the district's website, according to the Miami Herald.
