Petition

Feb 15 2021 - 7:08pm

PETITION:  Florida won’t always have a Governor who respects the Constitution and the individual liberties and freedoms guaranteed to citizens.  Most government officials don’t understand that individuals, like you and I, are best equipped to make healthcare decisions for ourselves.  The Governor of Florida should NOT have the emergency power to MANDATE what you put in your body.

    Campaign to support Superintendent Adison Davis Local

    On-going

    Feb 15 2021 - 7:03pm

     Addison.Davis@hcps.net   and please pray for him
    Superintendent Addison Davis has had a rough first year. With only two conservatives on the board Mr. Davis needs to hear from us. Show your support and appreciation.  I am sure there are many people who are upset with his new policies.  Just a note of support would be meaningful.

    • As a conservative is struggling to manage the school spending which was in dire need of  budget oversight. 
    • To have the wisdom to trust the people around him who are trying to help him succeed and recognize those who want him to fail. 
    • To have patience when leading others and when implementing strategies to help our students succeed academically.
