Hispanic lawmaker worries 'disastrous' election means Florida Democrats in reverse
There are several lessons to be learned from this election cycle and a new course must be charted for our Party if we want to turn things around. It is perfectly apparent to any political layperson that the current Florida Democratic Party is out of touch with the voting electorate. I believe a change is needed! The first step should be the leadership at the top. Bringing fresh ideas and more importantly, the transformation that must occur should be inclusive and representative of the constituents we represent. I believe in my heart that we must turn things around because we are the only Party who believes in advancing an agenda that puts everyday Floridians and working families first.
But in order to move that agenda forward, we must get our house in order. I respect your hard work and dedication to the Florida Democratic Party and hope you can see the need for us to rebuild with new perspectives and fresh faces. This is the only way we will build a sustainable Florida Democratic Party; one that works to inspire new opportunities for Floridians and works for a better and stronger Florida for generations to come.
