I just received an election mailer from Bob Rommel, running for re-election in Florida House District 106. It says he protected the beaches, but let’s do some research.
Look at the money he’s raised for this election. As of Oct. 10, he’s raised $112,000. Good for you, Rommel. Next, let’s look at who gave him money: those involved in real estate, finance, insurance (lots need for building), lobbying, transportation, agriculture, construction, energy and natural resources, who in total gave him $76,000. So 70 percent of his money comes from stakeholders in agriculture, land and energy development. Follow the money.
We all know the risks
to clean water: land development, agriculture, fracking, drilling, heavy trucks. They are all risk factors in protecting our water and the Everglades.
Rommel gets endorsements, too, from the PACs that support drilling, agriculture and land development such as Associated Industries of Florida.
I’m voting for clean water, so I am voting for Sara McFadden in Florida House District 106.
Plus, while I did my research, I learned that Rommel is highly endorsed by the NRA by 93 percent. Since I am voting for school safety, I’m surely not voting for Rommel.
There’s so much more to challenge Rommel with. Do your research! I’m sending Rommel a pink slip and I’m voting for McFadden in Florida House District 106.
