Hello! My name is E.J. Ford - you may remember me! I'm running as a
Democrat for State Representative here in District 60, my home, the area
that includes Lake Magdalene, Lutz, New Tampa, USF, Temple Terrace,
Thonotosassa, and Mango. Let me tell you why I deserve your support.
First, I'm qualified for the job. I'm a trained social scientist, an
anthropologist with a background in politics. I'm a husband and a father
who sends his kids to Florida schools. I'm a Floridian who has lived in or
near District 60, my home district, for almost all of my life.
Second, it's time for a change in the state of Florida. The current
incumbents went to Tallahassee with a clear mandate to solve the insurance
crisis, the budget shortfall, the property tax explosion, and a number of
other problems. And the only lasting memorial to their work was a
Presidential Primary catastrophe that embarrassed the state and
Third, I want to do some things. I want to bring real homeowner's insurance
reform and real property tax relief to hardworking Floridians. I want to
protect Floridians: helping law enforcement focus on violent crime and
building the resources we need to protect our environment. I want to
protect the rights of Floridians, keeping the state out of our bedrooms,
churches, and gun cabinets, and keeping the state's hands off of our bodies.
And, I want to make sure that, unlike my opponent, I'm on the RIGHT side of
education issues. We need more resources for education, more flexibility in
how we pay for it, and more local control of curriculum and resource
I hope you'll join me in this fight. It's going to be a lot of fun.
