Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis took shots yesterday before last night’s debate at Nikki Haley for her “corporatism.” “We’ve seen corporations go very woke and you know, Nikki attacked me for standing up for the kids of Florida and she sided with Disney when we had a big fight over parents’ rights in education.” Haley accused DeSantis of having a “vendetta” against Disney earlier this year and called on him to “hash it out” with the company.

  1. @ David our Govornor should be looking into some form of punishment for what Jack Campbell did. Maybe not as severe as what was delt out to the wayward other 2 State Attorneys but punishment there should be. And Desantis is the only person on the planet with the authority to address what Jack did.
    To rely on the voters to address the problem much later at election time would be passing the buck when the buck should stop at Desantis desk.
    Help us Govornor Jackie’s gone off the chain.

  2. We have TOO MANY Organizations allowed to raise our Property Taxes on a whim. We had to Vote for the Penny Sales Tax and then Vote to renew it, we should have to Vote to raise our Property Tax.

  3. “He was ordered to not flee Georgia or Florida” ………. WHY would Jack give them such a HUGE Yard to play in, TWO STATES? For what they did to Jefferson County, part of the Bond Agreement should have been “House Arrest”. Losing $800K hurts Jefferson County bad.

  4. Shame on those who just raised our taxes. The property millage rate just went up 8.5% ON TOP OF the 7% or more increase just from property values increasing. Curtis is cruising for a bruising in 24. Taxed enough already
