Hallandale Beach Mayor Joy Cooper slurred her words and rambled on for long stretches of time in an incoherent fashion during last night’s commission meeting.
Commissioner Michele Lazarow eventually called Cooper out for her actions.
“You’re an embarrassment mayor,” Lazarow said. “You don’t know where to put a period.”
Lazarow later told a Local 10 reporter that she thought Cooper was “on something” and that she may inform Gov Rick Scott of the incident.
Under Florida law, the governor has the power to suspend local government officials.
Cooper told Local 10 that she wasn’t on drugs or intoxicated. She claims that her actions were due to her feeling sick after a trip to Mexico.
