CANDIDATE INTERVIEW SERIES:
MARK LIPTON – DEMOCRAT – FL STATE HOUSE – DISTRICT 79
This episode we get to know Mark Lipton, a Democrat running for State House District 79, an open seat held by Republican Matt Caldwell who is the current Agriculture Commissioner Candidate chosen by Republicans in the August primary. Mark’s opponent, Republican Spencer Roach (who previously worked for, and is endorsed by, Francis Rooney), has been endorsed by Matt Caldwell and will likely continue the legacy of Caldwell and Rick Scott, a legacy of environmental destruction and corporate servitude. Roach is taking money from all the nasty polluters while Mark isn’t taking any corporate or dark money and will serve THE PEOPLE! Mark is, by far, the most qualified candidate in this race and a heckuva nice guy to boot!
The main reason Mark decided to run is healthcare, including expanding Medicaid that will create jobs and better access to healthcare for those who need it most. As an attorney who has represented working men and women, the disabled, and employer-sponsored benefit plans (health, pension, and apprenticeship), working with local, state and federal agencies, Mark learned what both small business owners as well as working men and women expect from the government — the ability to be successful. Healthcare, a clean environment, quality public schools, job training, tax credits and small business grants or loans can provide the opportunity.
The environmental disasters wiping out local economies and eco-systems along our inland and coastal waters are a direct result of the policies of Matt Caldwell and Rick Scott. Spencer Roach would be a continuation of those policies. Mark Lipton will put people and environment ahead of corporate polluters and campaign contributions so we can finally fix the water quality and Everglades restoration problems with science based solutions and break the cycle of environmental destruction!
Mark will work tirelessly to serve the people of District 79 and all of Florida. Mark is not taking any corporate or dark money/polluter funded PAC money so he needs all the help you can give him! Please vote for Mark Lipton on or before November 6th, 2018.

We’ve had 20 years of Republican Governors and heavy Republican majorities in the legislature. You can see the results in our environment and waterways. They’re being destroyed, along with countless marine life, people’s livelihoods, their way of life and our precious tourism and fishing industries. Rick Scott and Republicans have been an unmitigated disaster for our state and it’s time we try something different. Something for the people and the environmental of our state! Vote Blue in these upcoming elections, trying the same thing over and over and expecting a different result is the definition of insanity! Aren’t you tired of the insanity? If your answer is yes then LET’S DO SOMETHING ABOUT IT! Register to vote and then VOTE, as if your life depended on it, which in some cases it might. Then make sure you go out and find all of your family and friends who aren’t registered to vote and get them registered and make sure they vote! Drive them to the polls if you have to. Get their mail-in ballots setup for them! Do anything and everything you can to help elect candidates who will finally put an end to this insanity!
