By Lawrence A Robinson I led a team that helped Regina Hill get elected as a first time office seeker back in 2014. She had little experience in politics but lots of ambition, drive and a willingness to sacrifice herself in order to improve living conditions for residents of Orlando's District 5. She possesses that special genome that gives her the strength and special reasoning power that guides her through the gauntlet of ignorance and biases as she sprints towards the goal.
By Lawrence A Robinson The sad thing about Aramis Ayala, Randolph Bracy and Natalie Jackson competing for the same political office is that only one could win. Wouldn't it be great, if we could change the rules for instances like this? Instances where there are three phenomenal candidates for the same office we should be able to cancel the election and make room for all three in Congress. Otherwise, we may lose two of them forever.
By Lawrence A Robinson It is obvious that Amy Mercado is not qualified to manage the Orange County Property Appraiser's office. She has never had an interest in property valuation or real estate. So, why would a Dark Money PAC choose her and dump hundreds of thousands of dollars to gain control of that office? Maybe she wasn't the first choice. Inside sources suggest that Amy Mercado might have been the fall back choice in case their first pick couldn't perform.
by Lawrence A Robinson George Oliver, candidate for Ocoee Commissioner of District 4, points out a few significant weaknesses of the Ocoee City Government. Oliver offer's ideas for change to improve qualify of life in his beloved city.
The comments were made during a campaign stop at a local barber shop. George Oliver is the incumbent commissioner who has had heated discussions with the City Mayor during public attended, city council meetings.
By Lawrence A Robinson Good job Dark Money PAC, you were successful in getting the most unqualified candidate elected to a position where she can't possibly be a success.
It seems to me, that Amy Mercado's only qualification needed by the dark money PAC was a willingness to lessen the tax burden of Central Florida's big entertainment groups.
The election results make it clear that outside influences and out of town PAC money had an impact. Rick Singh reelection failure was manufactured over a period of five years. From the very start, this dark money PAC and their affiliates, created false scandals against Rick Singh because he ended the cozy relationship between special interests and the 'good old boy club,' making them pay their fair share of taxes.
