It’s Time to Vote

Florida needs a Governor in love with Florida not Washington.

If you have not already voted in the midterm election either by mail-in ballot or early voting time is drawing to an end. Tuesday is election day.
Should you have requested a mail-in Ballot and have not sent it in, take the ballot to your precinct apologize to the nice lady across the table, and she will let you vote. Actually, the apology isn’t needed but we all know what she is thinking.
You can see a sample ballot, find your precinct and a lot more very useful information at the Pinellas County Supervisor of elections web site.
I am a registered Republican, and the Governor’s race is especially important to me.  Florida is a great state; I have lived here for almost 50 years, and I could not be happier.
The Republican race for governor has been a bit of a roller coaster what with DeSantis and his Trump endorsement really throwing a wrench in what had appeared to be a predictable outcome for Adam Putnam.
If you listen carefully Putnam and DeSantis are basically saying the same thing each with a slightly different inflection. Recently, Putnam has made a good point in emphasizing that this is Florida and not Washington, and we are voting for a Governor not a President.
I am not sure you can govern Florida with all its complexities with one eye on Washington and one eye on Tallahassee.
We already have a clown show in Tallahassee with the Florida Legislature, and I don’t think we need to add a second ring to that circus with a governor trying to coddle too and emulate President Trump.
No matter what you think of Rick Scott one of his greatest assets has been his ability to focus on Florida. Adam Putnam exudes that same ability.
We are enjoying one of the longest sustained periods of economic growth in the Country, and in Florida and we all know the longer these trends continue the more fragile they become.
Florida needs a Governor in love with Florida not Washington.
Please don’t set out this primary. Your vote is extremely important.
