Politics is local. During this pandemic and the civil unrest in the streets, it is more important than ever to pay attention to local races including the nonpartisan Hillsborough County Soil and Water Conservation District 2 Supervisor race.
We posted here our interview with Karen Cox Jaroch, a candidate for the non-partisan seat we believe is the most qualified and competent candidate for that position:
Ms. Jaroch is a professional licensed engineer and a former member of the HART Board who governs the local transit agency. Jaroch has the technical expertise, the governance experience and the public service experience required for the Soil and Water Conservation Board position.
There are three other candidates running in that race but Jaroch's biggest competitor appears to be Doug Rivero. Per LinkedIn, Rivero is a Political Science Professor at St. Petersburg College.
According to his Facebook feed, Rivero is also an anti-capitalist Bernie Bro Socialist. Rivero has endorsements from Socialist and Far Left organizations including Our Revolution and Tampa Bay Democrat Socialists who are demanding Tampa defund their police department.
Rivero's Facebook Page is filled with Far Left rhetoric and he also disparages Jaroch revealing he thinks she is his biggest competitor.
Rivero has advanced degrees in Political Science from Florida International University (FIU) but does not understand America's Founding. How does that happen?
America is a Republic. Our Founding Fathers were determined to forestall the inherent dangers of what James Madison called “the tyranny of the majority" or mob rule. Our Founding Fathers knew that a tyranny of the majority always manifests in democratic style systems. Republics provide checks and balances to protect the individual from the tyranny of the majority.
Are students in Florida missing basic Civics and History lessons in our high schools and universities?
Perhaps so if they are being taught thru the Zinn Education Project a predecessor to the New York Times 1619 Project fraudulent indoctrination tool.
Rivero promotes fundamental changes that rip apart the very fabric of our Republic and he is teaching our college students. Rivero states in interviews posted on his Facebook page that he is running for the Soil and Water Conservation seat to fight environmental justice and environmental racism and wants to use this position to teach "little kids".
Rivero's Far Left rhetoric and flame throwing name calling posts on his Facebook page are distasteful and disturbing. Some of it, perhaps acceptable in the Progressive groupthink bubble of Academia, is over the top for a candidate running for the nonpartisan unpaid Soil and Water Conservation position.
It is important to research candidates all the way down the ballot, including nonpartisan races where candidates are prohibited from mentioning party affiliations.
Pay attention to the races at the bottom of the ballot and vote wisely. Those who get elected can use those positions as springboards to run for a higher office.
From research easily gathered, voters in Hillsborough County now know a Bernie Bro Socialist is running countywide for Soil and Water Conservation District 2.

Mr River, since you want to defund the police, let see you step in there shoes.ReplyDelete
If you want. I can get you with any law enforcement agency in central Florida so you can do a ride a long with them. This way you can see what they have to do every day. They are well trained and have to make split decisions in which most people couldn't make.
If you want to contact me please do. I would love to have a good conversation about water and soil conservation
Very awesome article posted by you. Very much appreciate your writing skills and explanation ideas. Your article shows that you have deep knowledge of insurance policies. Vintage Car Number PlateReplyDelete
Wow. This really proves that the American Republican party is the most far-right conservative party in the developed world. That explains why you believe that social democracy is somehow far-left. Social democracies are happier, protect the environment and have more social mobility. We in the US can have what Canada, Norway, Finland, Denmark, NZ and Costa Rica have. Unfortunately, the far right in the US brainwashed people with market and monopoly fundamentalism. Finally, you hate facts and Academia because the evidence proves you wrong on every issue.ReplyDelete
For the person who talked about police. We can reduce 80 percent of what police do by focusing on social services and helping people. That actually saves the lives of cops in the long run.
