Florida enjoying youth wave in politics

This is heartening news – more young people drawn into political activism in Florida. This particular story in the St. Pete Times is about the Tampa Bay area, but I’d guess it will apply to most of the state. Note that it’s not only Democrats who have been energized by our youngish presidential candidate. The Republicans are on to this, too.

I have a comment pending there to toot Dade’s horn, since we elected 29-year-old BJ Chiszar to be chair of the county party leadership body, the Democratic Executive Committee. We have plenty of wise old gray heads and new blood, too.
