Stop Our Governor From Vetoing Florida’s 4-H Funding
Nationwide 4-H is the largest youth developmental organization with more than 6.5 million members between the ages of 15 and 18. Last year Florida’s program included more than 192,000 youth and 13,000 volunteers across the state.

President Trump divulged information to an adversary, Russia. This was intelligence that was intended to be shared only between our closest allies. Trump admitted the action, one that will make those allies less inclined to share highly sensitive material with us going forward and has severely jeopardized ongoing intelligence operations.

Each day for the past two weeks the Gainesville Sun has published a letter to the editor from one of our members. We can not thank you enough for writing and submitting letters. Gainesville is Representative Ted Yoho’s hometown, and he is still a resident and property owner here. Let’s keep up the hometown pressure on him!
The Town Hall brought up many issues that are critical to our Nation. We must demand an Independent Investigation into Russian involvement in our election and collusion with Trump and top ranking officials. The movement for Impeachment requires consistent pressure or the GOP will not act. Furthermore, Representative Yoho has threatened healthcare, education, the environment, and so many other vital issues.
You have important thoughts on these topics. Please use your concern to fuel your Letters to the Editor.
While writing a letter for the Gainesville Sun might seem insignificant, your letters have a large effect. The number of letters that you have written shows the paper that residents have a significant interest for topics like health care, climate change, and more, which encourages it to increase coverage of those topics. The progressive viewpoint of your letters could move the Gainesville Sun to a position further to the left. Finally, politicians track public opinion. You better believe that Rep. Yoho reads the opinion pages of the local newspaper—as does the staff of Senators Rubio and Nelson.
Please, take the time to challenge the destructive and regressive policies posed by Rep. Yoho, Senator Rubio, and the Republican administration.
Your voice matters. We stand with you.
