A woman reached out to me on “Elect BANKS for Florida House” Facebook Messenger to ask, “ Is Banks a Republican?” Within 12 hours, I responded, “Banks is a NPA – Non Party Affiliation. Banks is not a Republican.”
I was told by a political consultant that some people vote for a party instead of a candidate. He called it party politics.
She came back with “I only vote Republican.” I thanked her for the question and she responded by thanking me for answering. We disagreed on one issue, only one issue and that issue was whether I have a “R” at the end of my name on the ballot. A single letter separated us.
My nephew reached out to me on Messenger to ask “Did I agree or disagree with an issue?” I answered, not to his liking and he flatly said, “I can not support you.” We spoke on one topic, one subject and that decided his non-support. I offered other topics to discuss. He decided on one topic to make up his mind.
I believe we agree with each other more than we don’t and if one issue separates us let’s dig deeper to see what brings us together.
Candidate for Florida House,
As a native Floridian, I love this state. As a resident of South Lake County, I love farming and teaching sustainability to this community. As a Candidate for State House, I love finding solutions to the issues of our time.
