Happy Wednesday everyone! Its December 1st and I hope everyone is sprinting towards the end of 2010 and doing well. Two subjects today, here we go!
Hey, Florida Democratic Party, pay your people!: It was reported by WFTV Channel 9 that the Florida Democratic party has not paid 28 campaign workers, $450 dollars for three days of work. The workers were going door to door for Suzanne Kosmas in an attempt to get her re-elected.
The Florida Democratic party says its because their Chairman and Comptroller were out of town, but didn’t Florida Democratic Party Chairwoman Karen Thurman resign (article attached)?
I don’t know how many of you guys have walked for candidates but, let me tell you. When you start walking you might weigh 175 and after a couple of neighborhoods in the 95 degree heat, you’ll be 172. Not everyone is exactly happy to see you either, try knocking on a Democrats door is your Conservative and vice-versa. Then, there is the dogs off of leashes….oh boy. German Shepherds are attracted to Campaign T-shirts, like a Bulls are to a red capes.
I don’t know whats going on in Tally with the Democrats, but it needs to be fixed and these workers need to be paid ASAP. The holidays are coming and times are to tough for payroll mis-steps.
Rick Scott’s inagural bash: $25,000 to get crunk with Rick Scott? This article published by the Orlando Sentinel, brings up the question in the economic timing, of such a lavish event. It’s a fair question and certainly above a lot of our pay grades. It the kind of event that I normally love to poke fun at, and imagine the wealthy with their monocles and $15K dollar wrist watches, complimenting each other on how awesome they all are.
Is it a chance for the powerful special interests to get close to our Governor? Of course it is, but they are going to have that opportunity regardless, and this dinner offers a cause that is very important to me and thousands of others.
The remaining contributions of this inaugural bash will go to Operation Wounded Warrior, an organization that does just that, help soldiers wounded in combat. Am I skeptical at the amount that will be “left over”, yes I am but I want to see a release from Governor-elect Scott that touts a hefty donation to a very worthy cause, when it’s all done.
See you tomorrow!
