Alex Sink campaigns in Dunedin



DUNEDIN -- Democratic congressional candidate Alex Sink toured stores on Main Street  in Dunedin this morning, presenting herself as an advocate for  small businesses, and asking supporters to spread the word about her campaign.

    “I’ve spent my career trying to figure out how to help small businesses thrive and survive,” Sink, a former banker and Florida chief financial officer,  told Jane K. Sweeney of MJ Fashions & Gifts.

   Sink also visited Salon GW, the Candy Bar and the Dunedin Chamber of Commerce.

   Sink told the people she visited that among other things, she wants to work collaboratively with others in Congress, whether they’re Republicans or Democrats, to solve problems. She said the recent flood insurance legislation that passed the U.S. House was a good example if an important if imperfect bill which should not have taken so long to pass.

   Sink also said she spent a few hours recently talking to undecided voters on the phone. She said they told her they felt confused by the barrage of negative campaign advertising in the race.

   She said she was hoping to cut through that confusion as much as possible with a “friend-to-friend” approach, having her supporters reach out to their friends to spread the word about her campaign.
