Subject: [AntConn] EJ FORD FOR STATE REPRESENTATIVE DISTRICT 60!
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 disenfranchised Floridians.
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 management.
I hope you’ll join me in this
fight. It’s going to be a lot of fun.
In the short run, here’s what you
can do to help me bring the fight to the field. Please tell your friends
I’m running! Then, please volunteer and help us win this race!
Then, please make a donation –
even ten bucks would help.
Please help! Just send
your check to this address:

REMEMBER: Campaign finance law mandates
that you include your occupation, as well as your home address, with every

Right now, we need to raise
money to qualify for the ballot, so the need could not be more
urgent. Please help! Even $10 will make it possible for us to make
a positive change for Florida.
