Dockery's inbox: "Run, Paula, run!"

Paula_dockery A sampling of recent e-mails to state Sen. Paula Dockery: **GREAT JOB ON CSX !!!!!! Run for Congress or Governor.Real proud of you.Never say never.Those who believe will prevail.Thanks for all your hard work and to your staff.

**I am offering my support for your campaign to  become the next Governor of the State of Florida.   Please let me know  where to send my contribution.   I want to be the first to donate to  what I consider a sure winner to be the first female Governor of the State of  Florida.   I do not live in your district so I can't vote for  you yet.  When you make the run for Governor, I will finally have a chance  to make my vote count.

**I am hopeful that someone with the ability to stand  up to Party insiders for the right causes gets a chance in the primary. In  this area we have had to suffer through an ongoing Stanaki Land Deal that cost  20 year veteran incumbent SA John Tanner his position and will undoubteldy  cost  MCCollum the grass root support he will need to win the north end of  the I-4 corridor in a general election. McCollums inaction in the Ray Sansom  Issue is also troubling to many Conservatives. I think you are better  prepared to lead us through the next decade as we rebuild our economy  as well.

**As a lifelong Democrat living in Lakeland, I probably don't agree with you on many issues, but I think you have done a great job overall.  You are one of the few politicians that are trusted!  I believe you would have tremendous support if you decide to go for either the US Congress or the Governor.
