Meek: "Floridians need to hear solutions to our economic woes, not political doublespeak and ideological rhetoric. I stand with Floridians who need leaders to fight for them, not politicians who fight with each other."
Orlando, FL - Kendrick Meek met today with Orlando families and workers living through Florida's worst economic downturn, before continuing to Gainesville and Tallahassee to attend campaign events with students concerned about their job prospects in this economy.
"Florida's middle class, who have worked so hard to provide for their families, are paying the price for other people's recklessness. Floridians deserve an economy that works for all of us and that produces long term jobs transforming this state from recession to recovery. Floridians need to hear solutions to our economic woes, not the political doublespeak we've grown accustomed to from the governor, and the ideological rhetoric from the former speaker - neither of which creates one more job in Florida, nor expands our struggling economy," said Kendrick Meek, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate. "We hear about economic recovery in other states, but don't see it in Florida. I stand with Floridians who need leaders to fight for them, not politicians who fight with each other."
On Wednesday, Kendrick met with Florida's law enforcement community and citrus growers. Later this week and next, he will travel to Pensacola, Orlando, Jacksonville, and Daytona Beach to meet with Florida teachers, firefighters, faith leaders, scientists, and engineers to discuss ways to grow Florida's economy.
