    FLORIDA 2010: I now have my Florida 2010 Act Blue page up to support Democratic efforts to turn Florida bluer. Florida has been the supposed "must win" state for Democrats since 2000. I am not sure I buy that, but I do think it is well worth trying. And I think we could win it. If we do, then we almost certainly will win the Presidency. So it is well worth focusing on Florida.

    Florida could be the hottest election in 2010. Republicans are in the midst of a civil war with teabaggers attacking their fellow Republicans. However Democrats have not yet gotten their act together to put up a good fight. So it will come down to which party can get their act together better. At stake is Florida's Senate seat, Governorship and at least two House races, FL-8 where we need to defend Alan Grayson's seat and FL-10 where we have an excellent chance to take a Republican seat. So lets get OUR act together and win big in Florida in 2010.


    BET.com's 21 People to Watch in 2010 list includes FL Democratic Representative and Senate Candidate Kendrick Meek:

    Rep. Kendrick Meek (D-FL)
    Representative Meek is a leader in Congress and the CBC, spearheading legislation to further education initiatives. But did you know that he’s making history as a candidate in the 2010 Senate elections? If elected, the congressman will be the first African-American U.S. Senator from Florida.



    News from Florida:

    Latinos Overwhelmingly Support Health Care Reform

    Florida CFO Alex Sink calls foreclosure order 'important step' to help Florida homeowners (from the Florida CFO Newsletter):

    Florida CFO Alex Sink today commended the Florida Supreme Court order recommending a statewide managed mediation program for Florida’s homeowners. Given her previous work to aid Floridians struggling with foreclosure, CFO Sink was tapped by Chief Justice Peggy Quince to provide a delegate on the Task Force that developed these recommendations.

    “With Florida facing the worst foreclosure crisis in the nation, our state must take meaningful action to help Floridians stay in their homes, and I commend the work of the Task Force and Supreme Court,” said CFO Sink. “Requiring a uniform mediation program is an important step to improve communication between homeowners and their lenders, something vitally important as we work to provide real relief to struggling residents.”

    Florida Housing HelpCFO Sink has started two initiatives to bring real, tangible help to Florida homeowners facing foreclosure, including the Florida Housing Help initiative that holds workshops for homeowners across the state. In 2009, CFO Sink’s Department of Financial Services held 79 Florida Housing Help workshops across Florida, helping more than 12,000 Florida homeowners connect with their lenders or housing counselors. Florida Attorneys Saving Homes

    CFO Sink also called for the creation of the Florida Attorneys Saving Homes program, which pairs volunteer lawyers with Florida homeowners who are behind on their mortgage payments, to help these homeowners try and find solutions with their lenders. Over 1,000 lawyers across the state have volunteered their time for the program.

    Details on CFO Sink’s work to help Florida’s homeowners and a calendar of upcoming Florida Housing Help workshops can be found at: http://www.MyFloridaCFO.com/FloridaHousingHelp.

    Florida Democratic Party Netroots Coalition

    The Netroots Coalition was created to help bring together bloggers and Netroots activists who support the Democratic Party. The mission of the organization is to contribute to the growth and influence of the Democratic Party, to establish and maintain a Democratic online community, and to promote the party and all party candidates for Democratic leadership throughout the state and nation. We also seek to assist and encourage Florida Democrats, including clubs, county, and grassroots organizations to get online and establish a communication network and promote online participation among Democrats. Go here to join.

    Florida Democratic Party Small County Coalition

    The SCC is made up of the counties in Florida that have less than 35,000 registered Democrats, which includes more than half of the counties in Florida. The mobilization and organization of small counties through the SCC is an important asset to Florida Democrats. As one of the finest examples of what cooperation within the Party can achieve, the SCC, Florida's largest Democratic voting block, gives Democrats from smaller counties a chance to deliver our message in underrepresented areas of Florida.

    Go here to get active in the coalition.

    Mark your calendars for the next Smal County Coalition Convention on June 20-22 in Nassau County. Learn more here: http://www.doug2008.net/scc2008.html


    Continuing the Fight for Healthcare reform in Florida: sign up here to volunteer for the Health Care for America Now campaign in Florida. About Health Care for America Now:

    Health Care for America Now (HCAN) is a national grassroots campaign of more than 1,000 organizations in 46 states representing 30 million people dedicated to winning quality, affordable health care we all can count on in 2009. Our organization and principles are supported by President Obama, Vice President Biden, and more than 190 Members of Congress.

    We are building a national movement to win comprehensive health care reform by helping mobilize people in their communities to lobby their U.S. Senators and Representatives in Congress to stand up to the insurance companies and other special interest groups to achieve quality, affordable health care in 2009.

    Alternative Energy in Florida:

    Some statistics from Repower America:

    * NextEra Energy began construction on three solar energy facilities that will prevent the release of nearly 3.5 million tons of greenhouse gases – or the equivalent of removing 25,000 cars from the road per year!

    * Florida Power & Light claims to be the nation's No.1 utility for energy conservation. FPL's programs have helped the company avoid the need to build 12 medium-sized power plants since 1980.

    * Governor Crist’s Action Team on Energy and Climate Change adopted a fifty-policy climate plan that, when fully implemented, will provide a net cost savings of more than $28 billion and reduce GHG emissions by 64% by 2025.


    Alternative energy and YOUR energy bill: YOU can be part of the solution for America by signing up to purchase your energy through a Green Power Provider. My wife and I have been doing this in NYC for years. All our energy usage is provided through wind energy generation on American farms. So we use clean energy AND help American farmers. It costs us three cents per kilowatt-hour more per month, but we feel great about it. Although our actual energy may come from anywhere, we are paying to purchase wind energy for the energy grid. Each state has different programs available, usually through yuor existing energy provider right on your existing energy bill. To find such options in Florida, go here and pick your energy provider from the list. If you need help, you can email me and tell me who you get your bill from (don't give me any other info!) and I can tell you who to contact to go green through that energy provider. Or you can do the same thing using Renewable Energy Certificates through an organization that works with utility companies, though in this case it is a separate bill. One off the cheapest (.4-1 cent per kilowatt-hour), but still e-Green certified, ways to do this is through Good Energy. Or, for about half a cent per kilowatt-hour you can purchase renewable energy certificates through Carbonfund.org. ANY of these ways you do it, you are helping the environment, helping America, and helping cut carbon emissions.
