Awake the State Treasure Coast a Great Success

Awake the State Treasure Coast a Great Success!

On January 12, 2016 we had our first “Awake the State Treasure Coast” in Martin County.

Awake The State is an organic, grassroots movement of everyday Floridians fighting to protect and restore our middle class.
This was  a non partisan event.
Mary Wescott Higgins, candidate for State Representative in District 82, brought the event to us.  Participates went out on the foot of the Roosevelt Bridge. There were speaking talking about Fracking, Amendment 1, the water bill and medicaid expansion.

 

Michelle Jones added the key lime pie contest that was a huge success.

From the “Awake the State” website.

Floridians are fed up with their governor and legislative leaders insisting on extreme, regressive policies that hurt hard working Floridians. Enough is enough.

It’s time to Awake The State and urge our state legislators to end the war on our middle class and instead work to protect and restore our middle class by investing in our future.”

We are being assaulted by all sides by the very people who were elected to protect us.

I’m hoping we can all move forward as citizens and make OUR FLORIDA great again. Hope to see you on the road.
