Of course not!
To be fair, Ulvert should not be the only head on the chopping block.
Chairwoman Allison Tant should have been the first head to roll, afterall, it was under HER leadership that the Florida Democratic Party was sent into absolute oblivion And irrelevancy!
Shouldn’t she be held responsible?
Getting rid of Ulvert wont erase the stench that still remains as a result of some seriously bad decisions.
In order to start the rebuilding process for Florida Democrats, there must be new leadership.
We need new direction.
We have been wandering in the desert for the last 20 years, and I, for one, am ready for the promised land. I also know that the current FDP leadership just ain’t gonna cut it.
I was told that major donors were calling for the removal of Tant and Ulvert.
While I agree with that line of thinking, it should be the grassroots Democrats calling for radical change!
Money is what got us into this Crist mess. It was thought that because Crist could raise money, the party should walk to the beat of the Crist drum.
That didn’t work out so well, did it?
The FDP needs to go back to listening to its base.
I’ve already made it known how I felt about the treatment of Nan Rich, a lifelong Democrat. No need to go into that any further.
That milk is spilled, and Im not going to cry over it any further.
In fact, I’m not going to cry anymore. No one should.
It’s time to get to work. We have to get to the drawing board and decide how to put this fiasco behind us and look towards the future.
That future has to include new party leadership.
Im not saying wipe out everyone on Bronough Street, that would be nuts.
There are still people in the FDP that can tighten this ship!
Alan Clendenin comes to mind. There are those who think he should have been party Chair to begin with, and would have been had Debbie Wasserman-Schultz not stuck her nose in things.
It is time to stop with the back room deals, bring some transparency to party dealings, and stop trying to persecute those who are willing to speak up and speak out.
We owe ourselves THAT much, don’t we?
It is time to be the Democrats we know we can be!
It is time to give our base a reason to fight. It is only when we are included that we have a vested interest.
