Alston (District 2) and new board member Brenda Fam (District 6) dissented. Fam motioned to keep Alston as chair, but that became moot when Alhadeff, who was reelected in the Aug. 23 primary with 61 percent of the vote, was elected chair............................................................

4. A request to radical right wing Christian conservative lunatics.

As President Obama would say, Please Proceed. The sane reaction to your nonsense may save our democracy after all.

“A rising Republican star.” In other words desantis is a turd in a punchbowl. Please conservatives Keep on rocking and rolling with those conservative values. And when the next wave of Covid hits keep on denying.
