Robert Wexler is asking for money for Agriculture Commissioner candidate Scott Maddox:
It has truly been an honor to represent the people of Florida – and our values – in the United States Congress. In doing so, we faced many battles. We fought to defend President Clinton, and vigorously disputed the unfair recount in 2000. After our tireless efforts, Florida now has voter verifiable ballots, and most memorably, we made history by electing President Obama.
Through each of those battles, Scott Maddox has fought alongside me. As Mayor of Tallahassee, he was a consistent voice for fairness during the recount, and as Florida Democratic Party Chairman he fought strongly for a fair voting system. Now it’s time for us to fight for Scott in his bid to become Florida’s next Commissioner of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
I’m not one to back down from a fight and neither is Scott. As one of four elected members of the Florida Cabinet and the top watchdog for consumers, he will stand up to special interests and large corporations if they try to take advantage of Florida’s families, seniors and children. He will be a leader who will work for everyday people, represent their values, and keep the status quo in Tallahassee from dictating what is best for Florida.
You know I wouldn’t ask for your support if Scott didn’t have a tough fight on his hands. He needs our support before the deadline tomorrow at midnight:
I know that Scott will fight skillfully and passionately for all of us, and Florida will be a better place with a true consumer advocate like him in office.
Thanks, and keep up the fight,
