It has been a very quiet last couple of weeks but that doesn’t mean there isn’t anything to say. In fact, there’s a couple items we all almost count on! Mr. Wheeler, The Osceola Clerk of Court, and even the Osceola Rep. Party, who love having Hispanics as members so much they even placed one on their board. But that was after getting rid of a few! Oh what a County we live and play in. Some of us even work here, if you can call it work, but hey, enough about us, now on with the blog!

Only a couple weeks before the CHRISTmas Holiday and politics remains alive and doing well (sort of) in Osceola County and the State!

Saint Cloud’s registered voters, other than those who cared enough to vote, should be ashamed of themselves! Why? The candidates both worked for your votes and yet you disregarded their requests for your vote and went on about your own business! Voting today is just about the easiest thing to accomplish. You can actually mail your vote in (The Supervisor of Elections actually pays the postage!) or you could have voted early, at your convenience! But no, instead you did what you wanted, NOT VOTE! We honestly believe Mrs. Hopper, after all the time she’s spent on the city council, even if voting against, she deserved to have voters care so much more! :(
