During the course of the past several months we have editorialized on this website about the importance of local elections and a renewed focus on local government for progressives. In that spirit, TFS will be launching a series of locally oriented sites beginning May 1st.
The Broward Squeeze will launch later this week and will compliment the good work of other blogs and websites that cover the Broward County political scene. The focus of this site will be evaluate/handicap local races and keep an eye on elected officials.
During the summer we are also looking to launch The Tampa Bay Squeeze and the Central Florida Squeeze to cover those areas of the state. Again, a focus on local races (including legislative races) and local government will be a major component of those projects.
The content from these regional sites will appear on The Florida Squeeze homepage as well as on a separate permanent page within this website. Look for the launch of The Broward Squeeze on May 1, and for more regional/local sites and content as the summer comes.
