Welcome State of Sunshine
Jim Johnson is one of the best commenters on this blog. He has started if own weblog called The State of Sunshine. He's off to a good start. His post on the county mayor petition is worth checking out. I have doubts about the legality of the petition's wording.
BALLOT TITLE: REPLACING THE CURRENT APPOINTED ADMINISTRATOR WITH A NONPARTISAN ELECTED COUNTY MAYOR.
If you remember, the Florida Supreme Court did not believe that the redistricting panel would be nonpartisan. I doubt anyone who follows politics for more than five seconds believes that a Mayor would fit the nonpartisan description. The truth is Hillsborough County has such a horrible commission is because voters put up would Ronda Storms' Ann Coulter shtick and Tom Scott's silly turf battles with City Council over Central Park. When Joe Redner looks like a possible voice of reason for the commision - it is easy to see how an ex-professional wrestler becomes a Commissioner.
