• Why the name Florida Watch?

Our state legislature wields a lot of power, making decisions and passing legislation that impacts our daily lives. Unfortunately, wealthy special interests and campaign donors exert an undue amount of influence over Florida politicians. We’re sending a clear message to Tallahassee—the voters are watching. We won’t let them continue passing harmful legislation, cutting backroom deals, and stacking the deck against Florida’s families.

  • Who is Florida Watch?

We shine a light on shady politics and empower voters for change.

For too long, our state politicians have sided with powerful interests over the interests of the people. When given the opportunity to lead, they put partisanship and their wealthy campaign donors ahead of solving problems.

That’s where we come in.

Florida Watch is dedicated to empowering and educating the public on the policies that impact our quality of life. Through effective research and innovative ways to reach voters online, we arm Floridians with the tools and knowledge needed to make their voices heard and elect officials who will represent all Floridians, not just the powerful few.

  • What issues do you cover?

We cover state issues that impact the daily lives of Floridians. A Florida for all requires a solid foundation: good quality jobs, healthy and secure communities, tax relief for middle-class families, and investments in education, infrastructure, environment, and health care.

Democracy and Voting Rights: Implementation of Amendment 4, elections reform package, Automatic Voter Registration ballot initiative

Healthcare: Medicaid expansion, a potential ballot initiative

Education: Public school funding, charter school growth

Environment: Algae blooms, water management, climate change

Gun Violence Prevention: Repeal of arming teachers, CFO’s role in weapons permitting, assault weapons and potential ballot initiative
