Why does the State of Florida need a 12th state university when we cannot fund the ones we already have. The legislature approved and the Governor signed a bill to add Florida Polytechnic University and carved the assets from the University of South Florida. Meanwhile the budget the Governor signed cuts 300 million dollars from the funding of the current campuses. Florida Atlantic is looking at closing two satellite campuses in order to cover the shortfall. This is another example of playing politics with education and not being responsible with out tax dollars. We need to adequately fund the schools we currently have and make sure our tuition is as low as possible before we add anymore campuses. Besides, why couldn't this campus continue to operate as a satellite of USF? Did we really need another layer of bureaucracy in state education?
Amen

You have my vote buddy! Please stick to your guns and don't let the Party lead you astray. Don't let your voters down like Marti Coley has done. She completely turned her back on people and does exactly what The Republican Party tells her to.

Thank you amen! I fully intend to stick to my guns and vote my convictions if elected. I would be elected by the people of the 5th District and owe them, not the party or any politician.
