Politically speaking, there is a widespread McCarthy-esque organized resistance from legislators to their constituents. Rather than merely complaining and venting on social media, one little known county is breaking new ground: they have organized, performed a factual audit on their leader and are mounting political pressure from within their entire county.
…It is no secret we are disappointed with our elected officials. The country is grappling with political frustrations, vented on phone calls to the Capitol regarding the Speaker nomination battle. However, what is happening in Volusia, Florida is radically different. Regular folks have united to examine and hold their House Representative accountable. In fact, they have organized an event to present their findings in a public forum. Notably it is the grassroots activist in this district who have done the heavy lifting – diligently doing the research, 📊🔍 examining voting records, and taking matters into their own hands.
…The Citizen Coalition of Volusia County, home to Daytona and Ormond Beach, has conducted an audit of their leader and armed themselves with compelling information. Their goal? To educate fellow voters about Representative Tom Leek’s job performance, terminate his reign of squeezing constituents, and ushering in a new era of accountability. Elected officials that do not deserve public trust will be exposed by their own voters.
Today the Citizen Coalition for Florida held an event at noon to discuss their Florida Rep. Tom Leek.
The speakers discussed the rising rates of insurance and electricity in Florida and Tom Leek’s actions and votes in these areas. Other speakers addressed those who contributed to Leek’s PAC. These people are not happy with their Representative Tom Leek.
When Alex Newman tried to run against Leek, underhanded efforts were used against Newman. Some of these tactics were noted below.
The speakers from the Citizen Coalition for Florida encouraged fellow Americans to vote against Leek in the primary.
Watch this event starting at the 21 min mark in the video below:
