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…

GUBERNATORIAL CANDIDATE BOB WHITE HAS STRONG WORDS FOR FLORIDA LEGISLATURE AFTER CLOSE OF SPECIAL SESSION

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…

Open Letter to the People of Florida

Uncategorized
My Fellow Floridians, I’m running for Governor because I love Florida. I’ve been a Floridian since the day I was born. I can’t imagine living anywhere else. I grew up in Polk County, in the heart of the Florida citrus industry. As teenagers, we earned our spending money picking fruit, pruning trees, and moving irrigation pipe before and after school. We even worked “firing” the groves when the temperatures dropped below freezing. As a fourth generation Floridian, some of my fondest childhood memories are of family reunions on the shores of Silver Lake, near Palatka, or at my grandparent’s home in Okeechobee. To be sure there are places in Florida where that idyllic lifestyle still exists. I hope we never lose that part of our heritage. But the reality is…
