|This was a typical election.
Voting was emotional, not fact based.
I worked a precinct all day. Talking to voters throughout
the day I found many uninformed and confused.
I am now changing what we call the “undecided vote” to the
“uninformed vote.” Thank goodness
Amendment 4 was soundly defeated because I can’t imagine the electorate
understanding land use amendments on top of the myriad of candidates,
One thing is for sure, Broward County has a long way to go
to be an area of influence in Tallahassee.
Democrats in our delegation will again be on the outside looking
in. Broward County deserves a seat at
the table or at least an invitation to the game.
It may be heresy, but maybe it’s time to dismantle our two party
system. How about a moderate, centrist
party? We can call it the Middle of the Road Party…wishful
thinking on my part.
The continued polarization is troubling at best. Our democracy needs true stateswomen and
men. I'm weary of rhetoric and double talk. An election correction, like this
one, is not the answer.
