Jessica Barrett shares her struggles organizing the powerful red county. The only red county south of the famous I-4 cooridor. She began a Young Dems of America Chapter in Polk, and a lil history folks so you can get your head wrapped around the courage this lady has. Big Ben HIll Griiffin, who built the "Gator Swampbowl" for the UF. He owns cattle, potassium farms, you name it. Well he has a Grandaughter named, Katherine Harris, (who grew up in Bartow Polk County) you may recall the name for she was the Sec of State of Fl who called the race for Bush against AL Gore in 2000. COincidence, we think not....
Jessica and I left a Purple county, just ready to claim it's voting rights, although voter suppresion and collusion to committ fraud was seen on 2010. Very powerful people control outcomes, but in the midterm 2010 we almost won a congressional race due to our high volunteerism and indeed Polk County was the ONLY County called out the night before the elction fro the exceptional work the county did. It was the people, and Jessica started the way. I can't wait to do this interview! Hope you will join us for encouragment on mid-terms and take away suggestions that worked for us In Florida 2010!

It took generations of struggle for women and minorities to gain the right to vote. With the voting rights act in 1965, finally every vote counted.
One generation later, 34 states have passed voter ID laws, disenfranchising millions of voters. Most are women, older, or minority voters.
RuralVotes and South Forward have teamed up to launch a new Voter ID Project. to help voters.

Rules To The Game: Personal Development - Raw & Uncut with host Issa EL
Tune in every Monday & Tuesday @ 8 AM PST/11 AM ES
The City re assessed all properties early this year - assessments went up - so taxes went up.
The City THEN wanted to INCREASE the tax rate by 17,5%
The citizens flooded the Commission meeting. The Mayor panicked and called the police, who were very calm and just asked the crowds that could not get into the meeting room, to keep the noise level DOWN so that the meeting could proceed.
A special meeting was called for the second hearing of the tax increase at a larger venue.
The tax was voted down.
The City, without calling any public meeting, put 50 items on the ballot
The citizens put 2 quarter page adverts in the local newspaper advising people to vote NO on all 50 propositions
One week after elections - the Commission meeting which is held on the first and fourth Tuesday of every month was MOVED with very short notice to Wednesday.
There are a bunch of resolutions to be voted on at this meeting which will be the first time they are brought before the public.
One of these is the use of excessive force in the event of "non violent civil rights demonstrations".
The others give immense power to the City Manager - who was an Engineer doing some work for the City and when the City Manager left he was appointed "interim City Manager". That was 25 years ago, and he earns twice what is the average for a City Manager in a town our size. He has NO experience related to City Management
