Response to Revanchist (Original post)

Tue Nov 6, 2018, 01:36 PM

19. I had two unopposed when I early voted, both republicans.

I live in a red county that is moving toward purple. Hospitals, healthcare and the police forces are the biggest employers in the area. The ratio of government to other workers is the highest that I have seen anywhere. I own my business and I have two brothers that are business owners, one deals some with government agencies.

The problem in my county is the lack of high tech businesses like biotech or even medical research facilities, all of that is in Gainesville, which is bright blue politically. If my county had more knowledge based businesses, I believe that it would become blue due to a higher percentage of educated people that have science backgrounds.
