Often, on the campaign trail I mentioned the fact that I was about eight years old before I finally understood that I was, in fact, an African American person. Up until that point I only understood that i was an American, and that being an American was very special.

While many argue that personal lives (especially of family members) shouldn't matter when it comes to politics, I see why they do...because situations in our lives shape us into who we are.
David Ayala's story is one of reformation, restoration and most importantly, rehabilitation.

Domestic violence is becoming worst and worst these days! If you haven't been through it you would never understand! To have a weakness and not love yourself enough to get out is frightening! To think a man loves you after he treats you like scum and disrespect you in front of family and friends is sickening! It happens it happened to me!

Last night was extremely gratifying for me. My good friend Aramis Donell Ayala was elected not ONLY as the first black prosecutor in Florida history. She is the first black female prosecutor in the south. History was made last night.
But that is not even the most gratifying part. She (we) started out with literally a handful of supporters. There was no big loud thunderous movement in the beginning. It simply started out with a group of friends who saw something special in a person and encouraged her to run.

Chad Cronon was an instructor of legal studies at the University of Central Florida. He also practices law privately.
I met Chad when my political support team needed an attorney to file an injunction against an opponent candidate who was a well known, establishment and status quo, Black attorney who was running for City Council in his mother's shadow.
We wanted a Black attorney to file the injunction, but could not find one who would take the case. Chad Cronon decided to take the case. Chad was white and had tried cases against government entities and won. I advised him of the issues that Black attorneys face in this type of situation, but Chad was confident that he would be triumphant and there would be no issue.
