Statement From Gubernatorial Candidate Bob White Regarding Sexual Harassment In The Florida Legislature

Statement From Gubernatorial Candidate Bob White Regarding Sexual Harassment In The Florida Legislature

Press Releases
Extremely serious charges of sexual harassment have been brought against Senator JackLatvala. Charges which he has denied, insisting that he will fight to clear his name. To pile on for political purposes, which we have seen others do, would be irresponsible at this point. An investigation has been initiated by the Senate President. We need to let that investigation run it's course and see where it leads. If the allegations prove to be true then decisive action would certainly be required.    What I find especially disturbing is that apparently many female staffers, lobbyists, and even legislators have remained silent in the face of this type of behavior, fearing backlash and reprisal if they speak out against it publicly, or even privately to leadership. Has the Florida Legislature become a hostile work environment for women? The investigation…

Jack Latvala’s hypocrisy calls into question his qualifications to be Governor

Press Releases
Republican Gubernatorial candidate Bob White is challenging Jack Latvala’s judgement and qualifications for the office of Governor. White is taking exception to comments made by his opponent before and after hurricane Irma made her devastating landfall. In comments critical of Rick Scott and widely reported by Florida media outlets before Irma made landfall, Latvala was quoted as follows … “I have lived in Florida for 50 years. We have hurricane season every year. We try to use good judgment,” Latvala said. ”I’m not sure that we haven’t overdone it a little bit … Do you have to close down the state four days before the storm gets here? He said he had heard from constituents asking him, “Why are we doing this so early?” White contends that Latvala is singing…

Bob White Welcomes Jack Latvala to Race for Florida’s Governor

Uncategorized
Melbourne, Florida –  Jack Latvala announced today that he will be joining Bob White and Adam Putnam in the Republican primary for governor of Florida. The longtime state senator, a fixture of the Tallahassee political establishment, will have served a combined 16 years in the state legislature when the 2018 session ends early next year. His tenure and in some cases Chairmanship of various powerful committees during that time put him in a position to raise millions of dollars in dark money contributions from special interests with business before the legislature and he took full advantage of that opportunity. “Jack is a far cry from the traditionally conservative candidate that he claims to be. His support for issues like in-state tuition for undocumented students, medicaid expansion, corporate welfare and high speed rail will…

FLORIDA GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE BOB WHITE QUESTIONS ADAM PUTNAM’S RECORD AFTER PUTNAM CLAIMS TO BE ONLY REPUBLICAN IN GOVERNOR’S RACE

Uncategorized
Melbourne, Florida – Monday, July 3, 2017 –Adam Putnam, Republican candidate for Florida governor, was purposefully misleading potential voters on Thursday when he hit the airwaves in the greater Tampa market claiming to be the only Republican in the race for Florida's governor. Fellow Republican gubernatorial candidate and chairman of the Republican Liberty Caucus of Florida, Bob White, not only called this notion preposterous but also questioned whether Adam Putnam could really call himself a Republican based on his prior record in office. "The poster child for career politicians, with a republican in name only voting record, claims to be the only republican in the race. He's the only RINO in the race but certainly not the only Republican" White, who will be doing his own media tour in the…

Uncategorized
Melbourne, FL- Bob White, Republican Candidate for governor of Florida, put out a statement today with harsh words for legislative leadership at the close of the special legislative session. After a regular legislative session that ended with several back room deals on budget issues and a controversial education bill, the legislature was called back for a 3 day special session dealing with the budget, education and in the end, the implementation of medical cannabis. It was yet another back room deal between legislative leadership and the Governor that resulted in the call for the special session. On the first day of the special session, Mr. White wrote an open letter to the Florida legislature as a whole imploring them to stay true to their conservative principles. At the conclusion of the…

Open Letter to the Florida Legislature

Uncategorized
An Open Letter to the Legislators of Florida, For years I’ve traveled back and forth to Tallahassee attempting to have an impact on the legislative process. I’ve watched the way things have worked in Tallahassee and have become disgusted by it. The people of Florida have been shut out of the process. We have had our voices muffled and silenced. As one back room deal paves the way for the next back room deal, the people of Florida have continually footed the bill for pet projects, higher regulations (that we then have to live under), corporate welfare schemes and crony capitalism projects. I had hope for this this legislative session. Commitments were made. The process was going to be more open and transparent. Accountability to the people was to be…

The bill itself is made up of several pieces of legislation largely comprised of house bills that had not made it through the entire committee process and was mostly not seen by the Florida senate chamber prior to the vote on…
