Justin S. Flippen

  • On Monday morning, Wilton Manors Vice Mayor Justin Flippen announced he’s running for mayor in 2018.

  • On Tuesday, April 26, 2016, the Wilton Manors City Commission discussed an agenda item regarding gender confirmation benefit options being added to the city’s employee healthcare plan. The discussion included personal testimonies from members of the audience. I was moved by the struggles and tribulations transgender constituents within and outside our community are experiencing as a result of rampant discrimination within the mainstream healthcare system. And while much of the discussion was on the financial cost of coverage to the city, cost to employees, and where the money would come from, an essential fact was overlooked.

  • A popular downtown city park will likely be renamed in honor of the late Mayor Justin Flippen, pending a Sept. 22  public hearing.
