Maggie's List Names Jennifer Carroll National Spokeswoman

Sandra Mortham, national chair for the organization Maggie's List, says Independence Day is the perfect time to name a patriot and public servant to a post she will use to elect more conservative women to office.

Mortham announced Wednesday the appointment of Jennifer Carroll as the new national spokeswoman for Maggie's List. Carroll served with Gov. Rick Scott as the 18th lieutenant governor of Florida from Jan. 4, 2011 to March 12, 2013. 

Established in 2010, Maggie's List is a federal political action committee created to raise awareness and funds to increase the number of conservative women elected to federal public office.

Carroll emigrated with her parents from the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago at the age of 8. She and her family assimilated in the U.S. and embraced the opportunities the nation afforded, Mortham writes in her announcement.

Carroll is no stranger to challenges and adversity, having adapted to a new culture as a young child, then to her life after joining the Navy as a jet mechanic in a field that was male-dominated and unwelcoming at the time. She worked hard and ascended to greater heights when she received a commission and after 20 years retired as a highly decorated Navy lieutenant commander.

Carroll gives credit to her training and experience in the Armed Forces for her successes in government. She was the first black Republican female elected to the Florida Legislature and as Florida’s lieutenant governor.

“My accomplishments in the military, in government and serving on many nonprofit boards have been my way of giving back to a nation that embraced my family and opened doors that may not have been,” states Carroll. “My role as a national spokeswoman for Maggie’s List is to encourage conservative women to take the challenge and run for Congress, help further expand diversity among the congressional ranks for us to have a true representative government.

“This Independence Day I hope all citizens and those who adopted the United States as their home, will give appreciation for the liberty and freedom so many take for granted," Carroll continues. "I know for many the struggle still exists, but I believe the work of Maggie’s List in its support of conservative women running and elected to Congress will help bring about greater opportunities, improvements and independence.”

Said Mortham, “Maggie’s List is ecstatic to have a mom, grandmother, veteran, former legislator, former lieutenant governor and Maggie’s List founding member as our national spokeswoman. She has done it all with honor, grace and integrity. There is no one more qualified than Jennifer to do this job of advancing the compassionate conservative cause to elect more women in government.”

Maggie's List provides training and get-out-the-vote programs as well as critical financial support for female candidates for the United States House of Representatives and the United States Senate. Maggie's List extensively researches candidates and endorses those whose policy views and legislative behavior promote fiscal conservatism, less government, more personal responsibility and strong national security.

She is good and will work hard. None of the scandals you speak of were ever proved. I am her friend and fellow retired Navy. I will send her money and would encourage others to do the same . She represents a good organization.

Woah, guess they forgot about the sex scandal, ethics violations, and resignation for ownership in an illegal business enterprise. Well hey, it worked for Rick Scott...

Worth a good laugh!

Racist!

Jennifer Carroll is a good person. It's too bad the former Governor of Florida could not reach down in his tighty whities and find his peanuts to stand up for Jennifer rather than taking the easy out of throwing this fine woman under the bus. Congrats on your appointment Ms. Carroll.

HOORAH Ma'am ! "Anchors Aweigh"!

To nominate her on a day the black people were not free. We were still slaves is so disrespectful.

Let it go! Doesn't matter really what day it is it was. Time to move forward. Looking back is only necessary to know where not to return.

You'll be whining for as long as you live 'Kim'; and your bleating will ALWAYS have absolutely nothing to do with your 'personal' history of slavery!!!

Agree Anonymous - what an asinine thing to say about the acknowledgment of a truly magnificent woman!! Shame on you!!
