A big victory for Hillary and all women

Hillary Clinton is now our presumptive Democratic nominee, and I am enormously proud that our party has, for the first time, chosen a woman to be the nominee. When our young women think towards the future and the possibilities, and see that there is no glass ceiling at any level...

FPL Cleanup: Guess who gets to pay the cost? (Hint: It's us!)

First, FPL allows contaminated water to leak from its cooling canals, imperiling drinking water and the Biscayne Bay.  Now, they are trying to force us—their customers—to pay for the clean up! How in the world is that permissible? Because our legislators—including my two opponents!—made the catastrophic mistake of allowing them...

The TALLAHASSEE horror show continues.

This is my first campaign, but it's hardly my first fight on behalf of residents and consumers.  For years and years, I've been going to Tallahassee and taking on members of the legislature on fights ranging from education to taxes to outrageous insurance rates. (In addition to this work, all of...

They contaminate, taxpayers pay cleanup...are you kidding me?!?

In my last email, I outlined how FPL is saying they're going to pass at least $50 million in clean up expenses down to customers like you and me.The contamination of our drinking water aquifer and of Biscayne Bay is not only outrageous... based on reports on how long they've...

Every day should be Earth Day

It's a shame that we even have to point out it's Earth Day. Ideally, our commitment to environmental causes should be year round. For me, it is. I'm fighting for clean water, les pollution, and smarter environmental practices in our government. I wish I could say this commitment to our...

She's not wrong to be angry at Rick Scott.

If you haven’t seen the video of Rick Scott being confronted in a Starbucks, you should. (It’s here.) Now, I understand how to some, this might seem like a crazy person yelling. But here’s the thing: She’s not wrong. Scott’s policies are evicerating the middle class and twisting the knife...

Scott's already punishing women

As you might have seen in the news yesterday, Donald Trump stated that women who get abortions should face "some form of punishment." It may seem illegal, but it's not that far fetched. Here in this state, it's now law that women who get health services from clinics that perform...

Scott's outrageous move against women

Unfortunately, despite our protest, Governor Scott signed HB1411, a new law that bans funding for very poor woman who need an abortion, and prohibits women's health organizations that perform abortions from getting medicaid funding for other services, like providing contraceptives, cancer and STD screenings, and other exam services. This is...

Tell Rick Scott to Protect Poor Women's Health

As you may have seen in my last email, Governor Scott is poised to sign HB1411, legislation that would not only ban funding for very poor woman who need an abortion, it would prohibit women's health organizations that perform abortions from getting medicaid funding for other services, like providing contraceptives,...
