      I took my endorsements very seriously. Part of my criteria for my endorsement was that my endorsements have already contributed greatly and in many ways to the community and Humanity for reasons other than campaign contributions by Insiders and special interests. Which is the most prevalent problem at the present. Tallahassee voters could end the corruption in one day with voting for the best candidates that aren’t tied to special interess. You are not just voting out special interests you are voting in people who will hit the ground running focused and working for you and not their special interests. Everyone has a right to their opinion, but I would prefer that you give details on why you feel that way rather than name calling.

    Lotane had to resign from his state position due to an ethics scandal he caused. So much for prioritizing ethics.
