Since the State of the State address was delivered last week, news articles and economic data point to a worsening of Florida's economy, noted Kendrick Meek.
"States are beginning to emerge from this economic downturn, while Florida is being left behind. Floridians are hearing about economic recovery, but we are not seeing it. Our families are struggling, paying the price for other people's recklessness, and relief is nowhere in sight. Failed policies in Tallahassee and Washington, DC that took root over the last decade have left many of our communities broken. My fight is against this status quo that got us into this mess in the first place. Sustainable, long term job creation is what Floridians want and I am working tirelessly so that the problems we are seeing today will never be repeated again," said Kendrick Meek, Democratic candidate for U.S. Senate.
Over the last week since the State of the State address was delivered, Floridians have read and learned about the following issues:
St. Petersburg Times- "Florida slow to spend federal grant money to refurbish housing"
Orlando Sentinel- "Office that handles jobless benefits in Florida not meeting standards"
South Florida Sun-Sentinel- "2.5 million Floridians on food stamps"
Fort Myers News-Press- "Florida fails to get its fair share of census aid"
