FCTP 2014 Straw Poll Results

The First Coast Tea Party hosted a free Straw Poll on July 19th for all 2014 Federal and State Candidates on the primary ballot for Clay, Duval and St. Johns Counties.  This Straw Poll was open to the public and a media release was issued to encourage voters to attend.  The Duval Supervisor of Elections, Mr. Jerry Holland, was the moderator of the event and provided oversight to the Tabulation Team for the ballot count.    

Voters got acquainted with candidates by interactive dialog and by viewing candidate recorded statements.  This Straw Poll broke new ground by interviewing judicial candidates where previously very few voters were familiar with these candidates.  Citizens’ views on the Duval Library Straw Ballot were also included to educate voters.  

An overwhelming number of attendees and candidates expressed their gratitude to the First Coast Tea Party for the opportunity to participate in this free event when so many similar events are both costly and without the benefit of the candidates recorded statements to rely on for those candidates unable to attend.  Everyone enjoyed the complementary continental breakfast.   The event was held in the Auditorium of the Jacksonville Salem Center. 

Volunteers of the First Coast Tea Party offered candidates from all parties of the three counties the opportunity to record statements on their candidacy.  Some candidates chose not to be interviewed.  The full candidate interviews to educate voters on their views on specific issues will be made available by You Tube links on this website soon.  The First Coast Tea Party expresses our appreciation to these volunteers for the many long hours expended in this huge accomplishment that provides valuable information to voters.   

Straw ballots are intended to be an informal poll.  Often, people only vote the races they are familiar with, although nothing restricts their complete participation.

The establishment of Civil and Religious Liberty was the Motive which induced me to the Field----submitted by Frankie Anderson

Approaching Memorial Day, Flag Day and America’s Birthday, and witnessing the current moral, physical, political and spiritual decline seemingly permeating our National order, surely, our Country is again on the “brink of destruction”, in need of rescue from the Supreme Ruler of the Universe, therefore, I wanted to share this letter with you from George Washington. The brief context is that after the conclusion of the American Revolution, so many of the grateful American citizens wanted to…
