December Meeting

We meet on the First Thursday of each month at 4pm. We are currently conducting our meetings in person with a 1/2 hour social gathering time prior to the formal meeting. 

Our featured speakers is: Jason Garcia is Florida’s leading corporate-accountability reporter. He is the author of “Big Profits, Tiny Taxes,” which exposed how corporations dodge taxes, and a 2021 series tracing dark-money used in a “ghost candidate” election scheme.

Jason is the author of Seeking Rents, a newsletter and podcast (available on Substack) devoted to producing original journalism that examines the many ways that businesses influence public policy across Florida.

Our Democratic Way of Life Is At Risk!

If you want to save our Democracy, you have to VOTE!

If you want a say in what gets put into law – VOTE!

(You know what the Republicans stand for! If you want that, vote Republican)

That means vote in local and county elections. That means vote in State elections. That means vote in National elections.

That means vote in EVERY election!

DON’T LET DEMOCRACTY DIE FROM APATHY

80 MILLION REGISTERED VOTERS DON’T VOTE!

DON’T LET DEMOCRACY DIE FOR YOUR CHILDREN

Save yourself time and frustration… Vote by Mail!

America is Leaning Towards an Autocracy

That was the highest voter turnout in the 21st century. Many third world countries have voting participation approaching 90%. The largest number of people who didn’t participate in the voting population was our youth.
