Local 2020 Vision

Onward to 2019 and 2020! It’s time to determine
School Board: Well — The voters did a number on who should run for local offices in our upcoming municipal and county races.

For Tampa Mayor: I am an undecided voter. Granted, I am looking for work to take me out of Tampa and Florida, so I don’t plan on being here, but I’m still interested in who will stand out. I like Ed Turanchik who has experience in local government and has pushed transit ideas such as ferries for our county. Also, we have Topher Morrison, who has proposed the gondolas for Tampa to install. Current Counilors Harry Cohen and Mike Suarez should also be considered for their votes on ferries. Not to mention Cohen was the force behind the cannabis decriminalization ordinance! I like these ideas and believe in innovation for Tampa’s future. Jane Castor or any Buckhorn apprentices would be awful for our City and will not get my support.

City Council: Mixed bag — I support John Godwin, Bill Carlson, and Orlando Gudes. Who do you like for City Council?
our SB in 2018, let me tell ya. They took a Board that desperately needed better membership and put WORSE people on (looking at YOU South Tampa). In order to keep it from spiraling into hell, we’ll need to elect some decent people in 2020. I think Robert Pechacek should run again considering his calm demeanor, attention to the issues, and teaching credentials. I wouldn’t mind seeing Bill Person attempt to get the West County Seat again. What do you think?

County Commission: Sky White would be an excellent addition! We need to keep Pat Kemp on the BOCC for sure. As for Murman’s seat, what should we do there? Jen McDonald is the only candidate in the race right now.

Florida's Brooks Brothers Riot

Some are comparing the historic Florida recount to the 2000 General Election, when GOP operatives seized on a false rumor to stage what became known as the “Brooks Brothers riot”. The man who reportedly orchestrated that riot was Trump’s longtime fixer Roger Stone.

Giving Voice and Visibility to Homeless Children and Youth

I'd like to introduce you to Charlie, 'cuz he's just so damned cute!

but I'd especially like to introduce you to Diane Nilan, who helped author "Charlie's Law" in Illinois, later to be included in the federal "No Child Left Behind Act".
Diane is my good friend and creator and driving force behind the organization Hear US "Giving Voice and Visibility to Homeless Children and Youth". Diane has, for many years, been a relentless advocate and champion for the homeless, especially families and children. She travels the country helping local government agencies and grassroots advocacy organizations find new ways to provide the services the homeless so desperately need. She has been instrumental in changing laws, both locally and nationally, and even our federal congress has turned to her for her experience and compassionate advice.

Take a few moments to visit the Hear US website HERE. Learn a bit of the wonderful work Diane does and see if there's room in your heart to borrow a little of the endless compassion Diane has to offer. Oh, and help her out if you can.

Descendants of Florida theme-park escapees

Silver Spring State Park is home to at least 300 rhesus macaques. The monkeys carry a rare and deadly form of herpes virus 
called herpes B.
It's Colonel Tooey"s fault. In 1938 he  released six rhesus macaques onto a small island within what is now the state park.  The animals are breeding rapidly, and a new study estimates that the monkey population will double by 2022 unless state agencies take steps to control it. here

Liberals Rule Hillsborough County

Democrats control the seven-member board for the first time since 2004. And in other races in Hillsborough, including two local sales tax referendums, voters backed liberal-leaning causes that could change the face of everything from transportation, growth and support for public schools to Tallahassee’s reach over local government. here
