SARASOTA, Fla. (Dec. 10, 2017): With the Feb. 13 special election field now determined, Alison Foxall wants the voters of Florida House-District 72 – and Sarasota media as well – to know she will continue to have an open-door, ‘here to listen’ approach during the final 65 days of the campaign. Alison believes the media is the ally of the people to disseminate information and keep government accountable.
Alison released a statement to the voters on Dec. 10:
“Voters of District 72, I am listening. I have heard from hundreds of you and there are many more issues to discuss prior to Election Day on February 13th. I will always listen to you, no matter what your views. Ultimately, I will be taking your voice to Tallahassee with me, not just mine, and not just my party. That’s what being a representative is all about. I will never run away from an opportunity to have public discourse. Tell me your concerns, I am listening. I want to learn what is most important to you. And, thank you for taking the time to make an informed decision with your vote.”
Alison added that she hopes to see and meet concerned voters at one of her campaign’s upcoming special events (www.foxallforflorida.com/events) or they can contact Alison
directly by phone (941-840-0369) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org). She is also available on her campaign Facebook page (‘Alison Foxall, Libertarian’) or Twitter (@AlisonMF).
This Special Election was called because the previous office-holder failed to fulfill her obligations to the constituents of District 72. Alison realizes this and wants to convey to the voters she is 100-percent dedicated to the job. One of those duties is making oneself
available to the voters by attending forums so voters can meet and greet the candidates.
There are candidates in this very race that have refused to meet those obligations. Alison — being a proud native Sarasotan herself — believes Sarasota voters deserve better.
The next campaign meet and greet will be on Tuesday (Dec. 12) at Coffee and Bagels, 3800 South Tamiami Trail in Sarasota, 4:30 to 7 p.m. Come and enjoy a cup of coffee with Alison and let her hear what’s on your mind. Alison has been doing this the grassroots way since throwing her hat in back in August. Her campaign team beat out the Democrat candidate in the petition drive, and was only nine
petitions behind the Republican – and she is one of only two Libertarians to have ever qualified for ballot access in a Florida special election via the petition route. A recent fundraising push was also successful, again proving the grassroots nature of her campaign.
FL House Dist. 72 encompasses parts of Sarasota, along with the unincorporated areas of Siesta Key, Sarasota Springs, Gulf Gate Estates and Fruitville are also part of District 72.
