Let's Focus on Republicans in County Commissions

Many county commissions in Florida represent more people than some states. Hillsborough's County Commission represents 1.15 million people. That is more than Wyoming (515,004) or Montana (944,632).
The past week has been an example of Republican developer funded County Commissioners gone wild in Hillsborough County. Politicians build their base at the county level and then move on up the line. Keeping an eye on them and who contributes to them when they win the county is a way to keep track as they go for state or even national office.

She Should Run

Local activists should take a look at the great website, She Should Run.

Besides, regardless of electablility, we need more diversity in Florida government - at all levels.
