This worked out for us HOWEVER it did not fix the problem and Eddie Colosimo, President of BFFAR, Bikers Americans for First Amendment Rights, has stood firm with the support of, not only the membership of BFFAR but the American people nationwide that the flags in question should not be included in the limitations the city is trying to impose, these flags show SUPPORT and RESPECT of our United States Armed Forces!

Eddie Colosimo
Its not clear if Eddie Colosimo, one of three candidates for mayor in the Aug. 26 city elections, was living in Holly Hill for 12 months before he filed his notice to run for office a requirement of the citys charter. Its even less clear what anyone can do about it, even if Colosimo is in violation of the charter.
The 72-year-old founded the Bikers For First Amendment Rights nearly a decade ago in Holly Hill while living near Port Orange. But after battling City Hall over issues like how many flags he could display at his business, he said Wednesday hes been renting a studio apartment since February 2013 and even has a copy of a lease as well as a drivers license, voter registration card, bank statement and truck registration to prove it.
I expected that, Colosimo said of questions about his residency. It doesnt surprise me one bit. Ive been planning this for a long time.
Colosimos lease is dated Feb. 1, 2013. He filed notice to run for mayor more than a year later, on Feb. 25 of this year. Holly Hills charter states candidates must live in Holly Hill for at least a year before doing so. He shrugged off the fact that his drivers license wasnt changed until January; his truck registration wasnt issued until April; and his voters registration card wasnt changed until October.
Sometimes you dont get those things changed right away, he said.
Since 1997, Colosimo has owned a home in unincorporated Volusia County near Port Orange. He said his wife lives there, and its where he maintains an office for his biker organization. He declined to say how often he stays at his Holly Hill address.
Im not hiding anything, he said.
Even if Colosimos paperwork meets the requirements of the charter, he may have some other issues to deal with. City records show the property he rents in Holly Hill doesnt have a rental license on file. Also, Colosimo maintains a homestead exemption on his Port Orange home, county records show. Property Appraiser Morgan Gilreath said Wednesday his office will be reviewing whether Colosimo still qualifies for that exemption.

As voters look to cast ballots in the election to determine Holly Hills next set of leaders, questions are being raised for the second time in as many years about the residency of one who would serve on the city commission.

Commissioner Donnie Moore was caught up in a similar controversy last year after a Volusia County schools form showed the Daytona Beach firefighter was living in Ormond Beach following the sale of his home on Riverside Drive in Holly Hill.

Among the callers was Ed Colosimo of Port Orange, owner of Bikers For First Amendment Rights who also had been receiving complaints.
"I am a citizens' advocate in Volusia County," Colosimo said in a phone interview."When people can't complain directly about what is going on, I get a phone call.This started back in December with her taking away (Christmas) trees from residents and people not allowed into a Christmas party because they didn't have family.
, 'SCARED TO DEATH'
"I have gone over there on several occasions, and those people are scared to death," Colosimo said."Any time there's a problem, people call for help and I try to intervene."
Colosimo said he compiled complaints -- everything from the administrator throwing out residents' personal items to mental and physical abuse -- and forwarded them to U.S. Rep.

Eddie Colosimo, the BFFAR's president, said while the event was initially intended to help the city and its businesses, "in effect, it did just the opposite."
"While I applaud the original idea for the city event during Bike Week," Colosimo said, "I feel this event went out of control due largely to outside people coming into our city and taking over the running of the event."
