Ron DeSantis Outed as Administrator of Racist, Conspiracy-Sharing Facebook Page – Miami New Times

Dog whistles are meant to be heard by A specific group. In the case of Ron DeSantis that group is racists. if you don’t believe that then you haven’t seen him in action. With the unexpected win by an African-American for the Democratic nomination for Florida governor Ron DeSantis has gone on the offencive. And his offencive is a objectionable. The governor of Florida like the president of the United States needs to be the leader of all the people not just those who vote for you. And yet that seems to be a recurring theme with the Republican Party. Do things for your base and ignore The rest of the country because they didn’t vote for you. That’s not how government was supposed to work and shame on the GOP for making it so.

Fight for Your White to Party Week 1999 – Miami New Times

One of the accomplishments in my life that I am the proudest of is my founding of White Party Week in Miami, first as a fundraiser for Health Crisis Network then for CareResource.

The first White Party took place at Frank Wager’s home in Coral Gables when people were dying around us and we had no idea of what was causing it. It then moved on to Viscaya one of the most beautiful places in Miami. By 1994 Keith Cromley the assistant director of development of htn came to me and said that there was no more room for growth in fundraising at one event in Viscaya. So we worked together to create White Party Week.

Along with 550 volunteers we created an event that was so spectacular that Sky one broadcasting from the UK did a three-hour documentary on how we accomplished it. In my last year as chairman we raised 1.2 million dollars after all expenses. In 1999 that was a lot of money. I resigned from my chairmanship in 2000 with a heavy heart but thought giving it to others to carry on would be the best after having been the chair for five years.

This was taken at the inception of White Party Week

We started off in 1995 with six events and grew to 23 events by the year 2000.

Lark Bennett and Keith Cromley we’re both instrumental has staff members in making sure that this huge event ran like a well-oiled machine. When Lark became the director of development for Care Resource she took it to the next level.

Being on the board of directors of HCN or Health Crisis Network and being the founding chair a white party week are two of the things I am most proud of in my life and I am so grateful that I was able to do so.
