Getting Things Done for Florida and America

December 30, 2016 - 9:00am

Looking back on 2016, a turbulent year for sure in politics, we often saw the biggest rivalries and the loudest pundits take center stage. All along, my main focus was always working hard on behalf of Florida’s 12th District.

December 29, 2016 - 9:30am

Why so much fright about Dwight? This morning I had an email with a column from The Florida Squeeze about the Florida Democratic Party chair's race. This article was particularly interesting because it focused on me just as much as it focused on the candidates and the race for chair. It also mainly trashed Dwight Bullard, no other candidate.
