The Will of the People

The Will of the People

April 16, 2019

Ron and his guest host Mike Shlasko discuss how the Florida Legislature ignores and undermines the "Will of the People". This isn't new in Florida, in fact it's a pattern. The citizens of Florida  spend years collecting enough signatures to put an Amendment on the ballot. The people overwhelmingly support the Amendment. Then, once passed, the Republican led legislature passes bills that block and undermine the will of the people. Or, worse, they simply ignore the Amendment completely. It's the "will of the people" that should determine how our state manages its resources and  responsibilities to our citizens. That's not how it's been working.   

 

Mitzi Fiedler & Venice City Council

Mitzi Fiedler & Venice City Council

April 1, 2019

If you wonder how and why the City of Venice is run, this show might just answer a few questions. It might also open up some new ones. Mitzi tries to give us some perspective on the City Council and how it may not be looking out for the best interests of the people where the big name builders are concerned. There is a great opportunity right now to make a difference and "Be Democracy in Action". There are two city council positions and the Mayor's position up for election in November. If you want to make a difference, this might be a great opportunity. You must live within the city limits to run. Contact us through our website www.indivisiblevenice.com if you think you might want to take a shot at one of these positions.

Six Gun Steube

This is Ron's first solo show and it covers a lot of ground. We start with Venice City Council ignoring their own development plans by allowing a local builder to get a pass on the zoning. Next a little review of what our representatives are doing in Tallahassee, mainly defying the will of the people and passing some extremist bills. We end with "six gun" Steube and his horrible extremist positions.
