Episode 9 w/ Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo

On this week’s podcast we have the Chair of the Florida Democratic Party Terrie Rizzo. Chairwoman Rizzo and I discuss the state of the Florida Democratic Party and the efforts that the state party is taking to win this November.

On our panel discussion we talk, again, about Coronavirus and the resurgence in Coronavirus cases here in Florida. We also dive into the Supreme Court decisions dealing with discrimination against LBGTQ people in the workplace and the repeal of DACA or Dreamers.

In an effort to support our candidates, we are putting on Candidate Spotlights so that voters can listen to the candidates and here their plans on how to help their constituents. Our first is on Tuesday June 30th with County Commission District 5 Candidate David Turrubiartez, Jr. You can sign up for this event on our website.  

Each subsequent week will focus on another candidate so check on our website for those dates and sign up. We will have audio and video of each spotlight available on the podcast and on our website as well.

As always there are a lot of ways you can step up and volunteer. We have virtual phone banks going on throughout the month and we encourage everyone to get involved in that.

Our Voter Protection team needs volunteers to counter the Republican stated effort of intimidation. Republican have stated that they plan to have thousands of volunteers prepared to question voters on their eligibility to vote. We need people to step up to counter this act of intimidation.

All of this information can be found on our website, www.collierdems.org. That’s www.collierDEMS.org.

Finally, we have generous donors who have announced that they will match July donations dollar for dollar. If you can donate, any amount to help us this election, please do so now and your donation will be doubled. We need every dollar possible.
