Interview with Karen Jaroch, Candidate for Soil and Water Conservation Supervisor, District 2

All races are important during an election. However, voters sometimes ignore down ballot races, especially during a Presidential election when the focus is the very top of the ticket. 

Down ballot races in Hillsborough County include the election of Soil and Water Conservation Supervisors. These are non partisan countywide races that some voters may be uninformed about or not familiar with.

Election 2020: Vote Republican Ana Paulina Luna To Defeat Chameleon Career Politician Charlie Crist & More

Ana Paulina Luna
Republican candidate for CD13
challenging Charlie Crist

It's election crunch time with about 50 days until election day and shorter for when voting will start. 

Florida is a swing state with the Tampa Bay Area one end of the key I-4 corridor.

There are a number of important races in Tampa Bay and the Eye will discuss some of them.

The latest Eye podcast talks about several races including the Congressional District 13 (CD13) race in Pinellas County. Republican Ana Paulina Luna, a Veteran, has a great opportunity to defeat Democrat incumbent Charlie Crist in CD13 and help flip the House. 

 

Charlie Crist is a career politician flip flopper who has changed his party affiliation three times.

CD13 is a barely Democrat leaning District but Crist votes with Progressive San Fran Nancy Pelosi 90% of the time, including voting for the Ukraine partisan impeachment debacle. If voters in CD13 do not know this, they should now. 


Whether Crist is confused, forgetful or simply votes as Speaker Pelosi tells him to, Tampa Bay is not San Francisco Bay.

We've been dealing with a pandemic and witnessing over 3 months of violent riots in Democrat run cities. This is an odd election year and the chameleon career politician Charlie Crist is vulnerable.

Vote for Anna Paulina Luna in CD13.

Podcast: We're Living With the Coronavirus and Opportunity Knocks

Latest podcast from the Eye talks about the coronavirus we currently are living with: from the accuracy of the coronavirus data, thank goodness the golf courses stayed open in Florida, people protecting themselves without need for government dictates because this is not the first pandemic we've dealt with to opportunities knocking to do things you could not do before…..like the opportunity to empower parents to find alternatives to public schools for their children's education. Provide all parents with more educational options and choices for their children. And the opportunity to eliminate costly bureaucrats and the bureaucracies that are not "essential". Don't let a crisis go to waste!

"Go Home Jane" Castor is a Disaster

Tampa Mayor Jane Castor was the Tampa Police Chief when the city successfully hosted the last Super Bowl in Tampa and the RNC convention in 2012. She clearly understands how to prepare for events that could get unruly and how to prepare for worst case while hoping for best case.

Fiscally Distressed PSTA: No Bailouts, Shut Down the Central Ave BRT Boondoggle and Hire a New CEO

Pinellas County's transit agency PSTA is a fiscal mess. PSTA's financial position has been declining for years and their fiscal distress began long before the coronavirus pandemic.

Whether thru incompetence or willful neglect, PSTA has refused to address their fiscal mess. The pandemic has devastated PSTA's ridership even more causing their financial position to worsen. The State or the Feds should not be handing out bailouts to PSTA that will mask or cover up PSTA's own incompetence and/or neglect.
