Citrus Taliban Terry Kimple Endorses Cindy Stuart

Kevin Beckner is the best and only choice for Hillsborough Clerk of the Court! 
Cindy Stuart should immediately denounce Kemple’s endorsement!
Terry Kemple has long been on the wrong side of history and he is still peddling his hate-filled, bigoted, and discriminatory rhetoric. Kemple, has endorsed Cindy Stuart for Clerk of the Court. Cindy should immediately denounce Terry’s endorsement as he does not represent Hillsborough as a community. Terry Kemple has even spoken out against the Hillsborough Domestic Partner Registry, which benefits more than just the LGBTQ community. HERE

Florida GOP Wants A War With Hillsborough County

The Florida Department of Education has barred the Hillsborough County school district from moving forward with an online-only plan for the first month of the school year. In a letter addressed to Superintendent 
Addison Davis and Chair Melissa Snively, 
Education Commissioner Richard Corcoran said the district has only three options for 
reopening schools. HERE
“The Hillsborough County School Board needs to follow the law, it’s that simple."

School board show us what you got!

Bernie: Our Movement is Winning

All across the country, up and down the ballot, progressive candidates are standing up for working people, fighting back against their establishment-backed opponents, and winning their primaries.
We saw it just this week with Cori Bush's remarkable victory in Missouri, and Rashida Tlaib's landslide win defending her seat 
in Michigan.
We've seen it in New York and Washington, with congressional candidates like Jamaal Bowman and Pramila Jayapal. With district attorneys and prosecutor races, too, like Amy Padden in Colorado and Eli Savit in Michigan.
These victories are happening nationwide because our movement has stood together. And now, more progressives across the country with primaries happening very soon are counting on us to stand with them.
Making calls for these progressive candidates is the most impactful thing you can do to help during the final stretch of their primaries. HERE

Commissioner Pat Kemp Gets Her Buses

HART now will have our first electric buses with $2.7 million in s federal DOT grant.
"I've worked for four years to get HART its first electric buses and for some time met with strong resistance. I couldn't be more thrilled. HART needs go all electric -- saving on costly fuel and greenhouse gases. Transit agencies across the country are going 100% renewable. HART needs to do so as well!" Commissioner Pat Kemp

Florida Teacher Tamika Lyles’s Emotional Plea

Orlando, Florida Racist

District 3: Sky U. White

District 3 is “the most marginalized district in Hillsborough County and also the poorest district in Hillsborough County. It also is the most neglected district in Hillsborough County, what the county needs to do is make sure we have someone on the Board of County Commissioners that’s advocating for this marginalized community. We can’t keep electing the same people that’s had the opportunity to build equity and chose not to."

Helena L Green on Thomas Scott

He can be a public servant, he just needs to do it from the sidelines. He has had his time. No more business as usual, electing people because of titles and friendships. Sky is young and vibrant and should be looked upon as the future. All these old and played out politicians really need to fade to the back! They have had their times and turns! Need to go sit down somewhere. They should be trying to nurture and mentor Sky! As I always say, it's time for fresh faces and new ideas! Let's go SKY WHITE!
