PB Clerk Sharon Bock Responds To Appearance Question

Sharon Bock Controversy

PALM BEACH COUNTY, FL (BocaNewsNow.com) — Palm Beach County Clerk and Comptroller Sharon Bock is responding to questions from BocaNewsNow.com regarding her appearance tonight an event sponsored by a real estate agent.

As we reported over the weekend, Bock is participating in a forum to discuss the Mortgage Debt Forgiveness Act of 2007. What we did not know, however, when the event was submitted to us for publcation is that it was sponsored by the Ragbir Team/Keyes Company Realtors.

We asked Bock to comment on the appropriateness of an elected official supporting a local realty firm that, through press releases for the event, states “Never has it been more important to have a local market advocate on your side.” The press release does not dissuade the impression that Bock is endorsing Ragbir Team/Keyes Company Realty as being that advocate.

In a statement emailed to BocaNewsNow.com, Bock said:

“As the Clerk & Comptroller, my office is the gateway to the court system and all foreclosure actions are filed through our office. Currently, there are 39,000 pending foreclosure cases. Because of our role in the processing of foreclosures, I was asked to speak about the Clerk & Comptroller’s role in handling these cases, and the information and services the office provides to plaintiffs and defendants in foreclosure cases. As a public servant, this is a topic that I am frequently asked to speak on, and do so in many venues – whether it’s to the Bar Association, Realtors Association, neighborhood groups and condo associations throughout Palm Beach County.”

Bock did not differentiate between the Realtor’s Association — a trade group — and a local for-profit real estate agency.

Bock is seeking a third term as Palm Beach County Clerk and Comptroller. The primary election is set for August.

  1. “Never has it been more important to have a local market advocate on your side.”
    This is totally true; the issue however is mis directed, she said a “local Market Advocate”. These are the worker bees of the banks, arms of the banks, the REO has standing contracts with the banks that contra vent the rule of law, and specifically hurts the homeowners
    I allege that Keys, the REO Company is part of the problem, part of the inherent corruption; the clerk is on the wrong side of the fence, she has supported in blind fashion, the very people and all their agents and associates, who have corrupted the filing process in her county recorder’s office.
    The Clerk has made no effort to make a study to expose the known frauds in her records, and make such study public, she has a duty to the citizens to do this, when these records become in question and they have.
    The problem is yet larger, the practice of rampant recording fraud still exist and is still occurring presently, fake assignments of mortgage, fake certificates of title, and other real property documents are being recorded daily, a certain significant number of those recordings are fake, these filings are taken on their face, from the filing agent, and there is no viable system in place to prosecute the banks or servicers or agents of, for recording fake paper.
    Clerk Bock should know, that, “money out of politics” has become very important, and keeping an accurate record is also very important, failing in both these now required tenets of behavior, for the job of clerk, is significant, that is not to say or suggest that these are the only two requirements, but these are important to homeowners now, do citizens have a constitutional right to accurate property records? By a clerk of such records?.
    The old school methods are on the wrong side of history at this time.
    The clerk has never addressed publicly how many Linda Greens or Bryan Blys own property, or recorded anything, in the Recorded files.
    We can only pray the clerk understands what predatory lending is, and how to recognize it on the public records.
    I do not think the subject clerk should be re elected.
