You can call, email, attend a city council meeting and fill out a public comment card to voice your opposition in person, and you can attend via Zoom and speak to the members just as you would in person.

Below are council members email addresses and phone numbers. I encourage you to…

HB 1475 and SB 2012

By now, millions know the story of Selina Soule, the high school track star from Connecticut who missed qualifying for the New England track and field regionals by two spots in her top event. Those two spots were taken by biological boys who identify as girls.

Well, we’re not having it in Florida!! There are bills moving…

Republicans to email on City Council

Sorry, I know you could have used this information yesterday...

Here are the Republicans on City Council that should be voting with their party for the good of our City.  Below the list are their email addresses to copy and paste to let them know how excited you are that they have the opportunity to represent you by voting in a conservative leader who shares our values, which is why you voted for…

Should Mayor Curry be endorsing a Liberal over a Conservative for City Council President?  If you're a conservative, you know Hazouri is NOT the right choice for this city, yet if City Council doesn't hear from us he will likely be the next City Council President and control the direction for his tenure!  Our Republican Mayor continually cozies up to the Liberal candidates.  Hard to imagine?…

Collecting for our Bahamian Neighbors

Good morning!

We spent last week wondering if we would be hit by Hurricane Dorian.  Thankfully we were spared.  However, the Bahamas were not so lucky.  I am sure you have seen the devastation there.

My daughter has a friend (a nurse) who is arranging multiple trips to the area and will be collecting supplies to take to those areas.  If you would like to help, we will collect things at…

As a Candidate; you then need to raise funds for your campaign

Unless you are very wealthy and can fund your own campaign, in order to succeed as a candidate, you must raise funds. Events, mailing campaigns, printing, signage, advertisements, etc. all add up to huge expenses. If you've received enough signatures, you won't need funds to qualify.  However, if you fall short, in order to be a candidate you must pay the amount for postitions listed in the previous blog.

A common misconception about political fundraising is that it…

As a Candidate; first you have to get signed petitions...

Petitions need to be signed for candidates that run in order for them to qualify. THIS DOES NOT MEAN THAT YOU ARE VOTING FOR THIS PERSON. BUT, if only one candidate gets enough petitions signed, we will see only one candidate on the ballot.  We need choices!  FCTP cannot stand behind any one candidate, but we can help get good conservatives on the ballot.
