Alex Sink launches “Take Your Voice to Washington” for CD 13 voter feedback

in Uncategorized by

Democratic candidate Alex Sink launches a “campaign within a campaign” in her bid for Florida’s 13th Congressional District.

“Take Your Voice to Washington,” is a new program to give Pinellas residents an way to share thoughts on key issues, with the purpose of providing Sink information to become an “effective, problem solving representative for them in Congress.”

In a statement announcing “Voice,” Sink made a not-too-subtle jab at GOP opponent David Jolly, a former Washington lobbyist and 20-year General Counsel for the late U.S. Rep. Bill Young.

“We all know that Washington lobbyists and special interests have too much power in D.C. – that’s why nothing gets done,” Sink said. “Here in Pinellas we want Congress to focus on tackling the challenges that matter most: stopping the flood insurance rate spike, protecting Social Security and Medicare and helping businesses create jobs.

“That’s why I will bring the bipartisan, results oriented values I’ve practiced as CFO and a business leader to Congress in order to take the voices of Pinellas back to Washington.”

The campaign is featured on a page on Sink’s website: Individuals will be able to submit videos, send feedback or choose an issue they believe Sink should focus on.

Sink’s campaign will soon be holding “Take Your Voice to Washington” house parties throughout Pinellas County, where her campaign will invite community members to information sessions and discussions.
