Politics was never my thing. Still isn’t. But the USA is a system with overlapping representation and it is a bottom-up, not a top-down system.
At least SIX people represent YOU:
State House of Representatives
Federal House of Representatives
This all assumes you think and feel the same as everybody that lives by you.
I never felt represented and always considered politicians like profiteers, leaving office far richer than they went in.
That said, I’m finally researching. I like a govt that does what’s right so that I don’t have to think “What did they do NOW?” on a daily basis.
I’m in the Conservation “camp”. Environment needs management so the public can enjoy nature. Public spaces set for public use. (National and State Park systems). Taking care of algae blooms using the best available science which includes management of runoff nutrients by Industry is a critical step that was voted in by Florida several years ago, but the current Florida House, Florida Senate and Governor ignored what voters called for.
So, I’m going to walk-it-like-I-talk-it. I talk about “Govt is bottom-up”, now to pay attention in a bottom-up fashion.
Jennifer Boddicker is the Florida House candidate for District 80 in Florida, which is my district. She’ll have a bigger voice than me when elected and Science-based solutions rather than “feelings” are crucial in assisting nature to be able to work alongside our Industries.
Honestly, I hate having to do it. But this background shift going WAAAY too far towards the not-quite-sane part of the right, where basics like, I dunno, _science_ is pushed aside with “I don’t feel like it” with such ease… I have to say something.
Annisa Karim for Florida Senate.
Florida Senate District 28 covers Collier, Hendry, part of Lee County, FL.
The current holder of District 28 was the SPONSOR for the unpopular Beach Access bill in the Florida Senate and pushed to the Gov’s desk.
I’m voting for Annisa Karim to represent me in District 28 for Florida Senate in November 2018. Regardless of your political party, if any, please do the same.
I realized that I don’t have to agree with everything a candidate has on their platform but enough of it. It’s underlying values that matter, something I used to think was just political mumbo-jumbo. But, it’s not.
