THE CAPTAIN REPORTS:
THE NAME GAME ..... PART TWO
First, a bit of a background on Ms. Gitchev Guerrero. Unlike Ms. Tylman, she did not magically become Hispanic overnight. Brenda Liz Guerrero was born in Puerto Rico. She married Veselin Gitchev (from Bulgaria) in 1997. She then began using the name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero. Nothing wrong with that.
Ms. Gitchev Guerrero became a member of The Florida Bar in 2005. She is a former ASA where she worked in the Child Support Division. She currently owns her own practice specializing in family law. She incorporated with the Florida Department of Corporations in 2017 using the name Law Office of Brenda Gitchev Guerrero, PLLC. She is listed with The Florida Bar as attorney Brenda Gitchev Guerrero and she uses the email address of firstname.lastname@example.org. She has a Voter ID card under the name Brenda Gitchev.
On January 21, 2022, she filed her initial paperwork to run for Circuit Court Judge in Group 20. She filed under the name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero. She then proceeded to submit additional paperwork to the Division of Elections:
Statement of Candidate, filed 1/21/22, under the candidate name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero
Statement of Candidate for Judicial Office, filed 1/21/22, under the candidate name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero
Candidate Appointment of Campaign Treasurer, filed 1/21/22, under the candidate name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero (name used three times in this filing)
Amended Candidate Appointment of Campaign Treasurer, filed 1/24/22, under the candidate name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero (name used three times in this filing)
Financial Disclosure, filed on 4/26/22, electronically signed using the name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero
Candidate’s Checking Account opened under the name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero Campaign Account and filing fee check filed on 4/26/22 using the name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero.
Then, on 4/27/22, last Wednesday, Ms. Gitchev Guerrero, filed her Candidate Oath, where she asked that her name on the ballot read, drum roll please, Brenda Guerrero. As we said at the top of this story. This is not Tylman becomes Cervera. Brenda Guerrero was born with that name. But, Ms. Guerrero was officially running for Judge for 115 days under the candidate name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero. She has held herself out in the legal community for 17 years as Brenda Gitchev Guerrero. Then, on day 116 of her campaign, she requested to have her name placed on the ballot as Brenda Guerrero.
Oh yeah, one more note. Last Friday, (two days after she decided to run as Brenda Guerrero), when Brenda Gitchev Guerrero renewed her Florida Corporation with Sunbiz, she electronically signed as both officer and registered agent under the name Brenda Gitchev Guerrero.
*Here is just part of that intercepted conversation:
Teressa Tylman Cervera (TTC): Hi, is this Brenda Gitchev Guerrero?
Brenda Gitchev Guerrero (BGG): Yes it is, who is this?
TTC: Hi, you don’t know me, my name is Tess Tylman, I mean Tess Cervera and I am running for Circuit Court Judge. I am challenging an Incumbent named Lody Jean. I see you are running against Robert Watson.
BGG: Yes, that’s true. It’s nice to meet you Tess Tylman
TTC: Cervera. You mean Cervera.
BGG: Oh yes, sorry about that.
TTC: Listen, Brenda, if I may call you that. I hope you don’t mind if I extend just one word of advice to you about running for judge.
BGG: No, go right ahead. One word though?
BGG: Excuse me Tess?
BGG: I don’t quite understand.
TTC: Your name. It’s not Brenda Gitchev Guerrero, it’s Brenda Guerrero. Got it.
BGG: Ah yes, I got it Tess. Mucha suerte en la campaña. adiós
TTC: Huh, what did you say?
BGG: Mucha suerte en la campaña. adiós. It’s Spanish for Best of luck on the campaign. Goodbye.
TTC: Sorry, I don’t speak Spanish. Goodbye.**
**The preceding conversation was all in jest, all satire, and never actually took place.
Buena suerte a todos los candidatos en la campaña.
