Dr. Brenda Snipes – Long a thorn in the side of dark blue Broward

Jeb Bush appointee, Dr. Brenda Snipes, administrative incompetence, unwillingness to make voting more accessible to large numbers of Broward County residents without prodding from outside activists and other Democratic elected officials has long prevented Broward – the most Democratic metropolitan county in the southeast United States, from reaching its full potential.  Snipes administrative incompetence has […]

Ron DeSantis’ imperial governorship – a mixed bag with great potential

Governor Ron DeSantis has entered office with a bang.
