Bob White for Governor Releases Sweeping Education Reform Proposals

Press Releases
  Today, Bob White, Republican candidate for Governor of Florida, released his “Children First” Education Policy Paper. Included in the paper are a number of controversial and far reaching reform proposals designed to completely overhaul education policy and practices in the state of Florida. Among the more controversial proposals, White intends to completely sever the relationship between Florida and the Federal Department of Education. “The Federal Department of Education is a wholly unconstitutional agency of the Federal government. The Feds are a burden, not a benefit” said White. “Their unconstitutional involvement has made education worse in Florida, not better. It is time for them to go. We will waste no time kicking them to the curb”. According to White, ending the involvement of the Federal Government will allow for the…

Bob White Responds to Florida Legislature Proposals in Response to Parkland Attack

Press Releases
What happened in Parkland is a heartbreaking tragedy that, by all accounts, could have been prevented many times over. I applaud the Florida House on it's call for the removal of Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel. If he had any concern at all for the people of Broward County he would resign his post immediately. His department failed in every aspect of this situation. It failed miserably and it failed over and over again. The FBI also failed in it's duty to protect the students at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. Today, the Florida legislature will begin discussing how to react to this tragedy and to prevent another massacre like we saw in Parkland. While I am glad to see a number of measures in these proposals to fortify our…

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…
