Surfside elects town’s first Orthodox Jewish mayor

Voters elected Shlomo Danzinger on Tuesday to be Surfside’s first Orthodox Jewish mayor and Jeffrey Rose to be the town’s vice mayor.

Danzinger beat Mayor Charles Burkett and Vice Mayor Tina Paul — who both responded to the June 24th Champlain Towers South collapse that killed 98 people — with nearly 35% of the votes.

Dazinger, 42, moved from Brooklyn, New York to Surfside in 2010. The father of five ran for a commission seat in 2020 and lost.

Dazinberg, a businessman and community activist, registered First Tier Defense in Florida last year, state records show.

Voters also elected Fred Landsman and Marianne Meischeid to the town’s commission. The swearing ceremony is on Wednesday at the Town Hall.
