Florida Kossacks.. Please attend Terri Wonder's Jamobree in Manatee County !

FILE- In this April 29, 2014 file photo, Florida Gov. Rick Scott speaks to members of the media after a ceremony during which he presented  

Terri Wonder is running for Comissioner in Manatee County Florida and one heck of a person with the credential to help on Climate Change !   She is planning a huge BBQ based on our idea and successful meetup of August 9th of the Fiorida Kossacks. ( Thanks Sem Dem and all).  There is some extreme talk of the pors and deep well drilling, along with fracking and Drilling in the everglades.  Her opponent is helping Scott do all the talk along with just plain evil Koch money.  

I am planning to attend along with some other Kossacks , and I am posting this here to have us all be aware of this important issue.  This especially applies to those living in and around St. Pete next to Manatee County.  

I have been busy with Vet issues and wish to announce progress, ( slow but sure) has been pushed to the forefront of making noise against Privatization and Bonuses, thanks to oversight from McDonald and Sloan Gibson.... ( I still miss Shinseki who tried his best to do this thing).   Town Hall meeting are taking place all over Florida VA's and issues addressed.   The Gainesville VA Townhall meeting is set for September 25th at 5 PM at the Malcolm Randall VA.  This may sound off topic but the truth of the matter is, I have been talking to Terri and helping as much as I can to help her.  I will also be speaking on Vet issues at this event.  

Terri Wonder's Old Fashion Jamboree is set for the 27th with music, BBQ, Fishing, and

Bonfire.  from 5 PM till 10 PM..  Here are some details of why Manatee County and Climate change and electing this lady is so important

But there’s something about the situation in Manatee County that feels… different. There’s an anger and disbelief over local scandals and backroom deals made by the county’s government that have shocked and disturbed people, while galvanizing many more. The county’s chief administrator moved to impose a half-cent sales tax on the county that will direct funds to hospitals already recording record profits. And there was the Board’s tone-deaf response to a wave of outrage in Manatee over the callous and universally-condemned mistreatment and killing of former pets and strays in animal shelters, which appalled most people in Manatee and inspired activists to take the fight to the Board of Commissioners, which had appointed the County’s chief administrator, Ed Hunzeker, to the position where he oversaw a departure from Manatee’s “No Kill” resolution. And then there was the Board’s vote to allow phosphate mining in Manatee, which activists see as a deadly environmental hazard. The 7-0 vote in favor of handing a five-year mining permit to Mosaic Fertilizer left many people in Manatee wondering why the Board was prioritizing a corporate handout over making sure the residents had a safe supply of drinking water. Terri Wonder (Campaign photo) But the biggest grievance has to be the willingness of the County Board of Commissioners to open up the pristine shoreline of Manatee County to the development of a sprawling hotel, the pet project of the powerful and well-connected businessman Carlos Beruff. - See more at:

A second-generation Floridian, Wonder has built a life that’s been based on public service. For several years she served in Iraq as a social scientist and demographer for the United States Army, forging a record that earned her the Superior Civilian Service Award in 2010. She currently works as a consultant to an international organization that fights human trafficking, and now her activism has led her to a struggle in which she will certainly be outspent, but never be outworked. “It’s very difficult for a David to unseat a Goliath in a county-wide race,” Wonder told me. “But that makes it all the more noticeable. If I’m elected, it’s a signal to other commissioners that the ways of this Board have got to change.” “Our Democrats are working hard to get out the vote in Manatee this November,” she continued. “The NAACP, the Hispanic Caucus, they’re all involved. We’re focusing on Districts 1,2, our local core, where most Democrats win. And we’re waging peripheral battle in GOP precincts.” - See more at:

Her opponet has Scott's hospital people behind this nonsense and the people of Florida will suffer from poison drinking water if Scott and his big developer donor's  have their way with this county of Manatee.

With the Governor’s favor and an unrivaled Rolodex, Beruff is one of the most powerful developers in Florida. He bundled tens of thousands of dollars to Rick Scott’s election, and the love was requited. Scott has appointed Beruff to the State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota District Board of Trustees, while also putting him on the Governing Board of the Southwest Florida Water Management District and the Sarasota Manatee Airport Authority. - See more at:

Come on Kossacks and Kogs.. Let us support this candidate and be at her meetup and try to help Climate Change and STOP the fracking and Mining.  I will have to let you just read how bad the animal abuse is in that county.
