Senate leadership battle gets ‘insulting,’ personal | POLITICO
Negron couldn’t be reached for comment.
The six words above – “Negron couldn’t be reached for comment” – have been proven true to me personally, over and over again, by Joe Negron’s failure to respond to emails.
It makes me wonder just how broad his disdain for his constituents is (and perhaps most of mankind), as I’ve addressed a variety of subjects, and none of them interest Negron: not property insurance fraud; not conviction corruption; not Floridians who’ve died as a result of Rick Scott rejecting Medicaid expansion. Negron acknowledges petition participation only, and conflates those responses as if the contact had been individual.
Now Negron wants every Floridian to be his constituent, as our senate president.
Perhaps the thrill of ignoring just one glaringly gerrymandered district’s worth of Floridians’ concerns has worn off.
As bad as Florida Legislature is right now – childishly walking out before the scheduled end of two sessions already this year – Floridians can count on their legislature becoming even more callous, corrupt and cantankerous should Negron be selected to lead the senate.
