We've got your back

From Scott Arceneaux:

In less than a week, over 3,000 people stood up and pledged to do what they can to end the culture of cronyism and corruption that is Republican leadership in Florida.

I started as the new Executive Director of the Florida Democratic Party just a few weeks ago, but even I know Charlie Crist's appointment of his political crony George LeMieux was just the latest in a long list of wrongs stretching from disgraced former Speaker Ray Sansom to former lobbyist Bill McCollum to the Republican Party's AmEx slush fund.

And for months, activists like you haven't stopped working after the 2008 election - working in their local parties, exposing wrongs, and even filing ethics complaints against those Republicans that have broken the public trust.

Even then I was amazed when Eric, our Communications Director, showed me how many people took the pledge to stand up to bring new and different leadership to Tallahassee and end the status quo. After seeing the overwhelming response, I knew what I wanted to do right away. I am sending a letter with your pledges to every Democratic legislator next week - so we can say one thing together:

We've got your back.

Everyone can see that Floridians are ready to dedicate their time to rid Tallahassee of the corrupt Republican status quo. Over the next 15 months, we have the opportunity to make real strides in our efforts to bring change to Florida thanks to people like you standing up.

Thank you again.
