EYE ON MIAMI: September 26, 2016. Written by Gimleteye.
State House District 79 is in Fort Myers. It serves Florida voters well to understand a little of what makes Tallahassee tick. This is one race where the choices facing Florida are fully visible. It is a David versus Goliath race, and I support John Scott, the underdog challenging Big Sugar's salesman in Tallahassee, incumbent state representative Matt Caldwell.
Scott was born and raised in Hialeah. He lives and works in North Fort Myers in information technology and is a volunteer leader for Sierra Club. Although this is Scott's first venture into politics, he has chosen an extraordinarily important effort: to challenge an incumbent who represents a status quo that is wrecking Florida.
