Occupy Alex Sink
We are seeing Occupy Wall Street movements spread to cities across America. I wonder how these progressive activists that are mad about the bailouts and tax loopholes feel about former (and likely future) gubernatorial candidate Alex Sink being the keynote speaker for an event co-sponsored by the Manatee Chamber of Commerce.
Sink, former Florida chief financial officer, will speak to attendees about the work of a new non-profit and non-partisan think tank, dedicated to reinvigorating and re-envisioning Florida's small business and quality of life.
This luncheon is in cooreration with the Lakewood Ranch Business Alliance, Leadership Florida Calusa Chapter, Leadershipship Sarasota County, the Manatee Chamber of Commerce and the Sarasota League of Women Voters.
The luncheon will be held at the the Polo Grill & Bar in Sarasota County on October 27th. It will cost you $35.00 to get in and hear the charismatic speaking skills of Sink. The Sink event is part of a series of workshops being run by Suntrust Bank. Tickets can be bought at the Sarasota Chamber of Commerce web site.
Sink's banking history and current connections does not strike me as someone who cares about the bottom 99 percent in Florida. Progressives should ask themselves if Sink is someone they want being the Democratic nominee for governor in 2014. Democrats feel that Rick Scott is beatable. You know who Rick Scott can beat? Alex Sink.
