Vote for Mucarsel-Powell in District 39! Good Letter in the Miami Herald on Aniterre Flores and FPL Ties. By Geniusofdespair

Debbie Mucarsel-Powell
Anitere Flores, State Senator from District 39, wrote on July 7th, (“Protecting our water supply, economy") that she wants to protect consumers from environmental harm and Florida Power and Light’s (FPL) Turkey Point nuclear reactors. That is absurd.

Over time, Flores has been a friend to FPL. She has taken campaign contributions from the company and its executives. Flores has also taken over $10,000 from sugarcane producers; polluters whose discharges helped create the toxic algae nightmare threatening our state.

Flores’s “newfound environmentalism” is one benefit of redistricting, but it doesn’t change the fact she voted to raid environmental trust funds, taking $172 million intended to protect shorelines water and air quality.

Flores November opponent is Debbie Mucarsel-Powell, a non-profit executive and community activist. While Flores sides with her campaign contributors over what’s best for our community, Mucarsel-Powell actually worked for our communities. She stated that she will refuse money from FPL, the utility company contaminating our drinking water aquifer and polluting a national park, and also from sugarcane producers.

Those who prioritize profits over the health of our citizens, environment, and our economy should not be in elected office.

I hope voters aren’t fooled by Flores and her foxhole conversion.

My issue with Flores is that her corrupt behavior directly affected my own children. Flores pushed through the Senate Bill 1620 requiring every high school student to take at least one online class. My girls were forced to take these classes and found them worthless and a waste of their precious time (though the online teachers were nice enough). Flores was working for a company that provided online classes and admitted that she got the idea from lobbyists for the course providers.
