“I don’t think you understand us right now.

I think you think this is about politics.

I think you believe this is all sour grapes: the crocodile tears of the losing locker room with the scoreboard going against us at the buzzer.

  • The Villages is promoted as a Republican stronghold. Yet 30% of the registered voters in The Villages are Democrats. Put a different way, there are upwards of 18,000!!! registered Democrats residing in the Villages. With another 16% registered Independents that means there are almost 50% potential Democratic voters in 2016.
  • Our Democratic Club has well over 1,500  members and is the largest in the state of Florida.  Let’s continue growing our membership. Try to bring a neighbor or resident friend to the meeting and help them see that they are NOT ALONE.
