Tax, Lies, and Videotape

PSL Councilman caught with his lips moving.

prior to his August 30th primary election Ron Bowen talks about paying down Port St Lucie’s debt

Everyone knows the old joke, “How can you tell when a politician is lying to you?”  Answer: “His lips are moving.”  Well, the WPSL/League of Woman Voters candidate forum always seems to have a never-ending supply of moving lips. You just need to listen and know where to look, or you have to sign up for Because This Matters and wait for another impactful installment.  (more…)

Taking Back Our Schools

Taking Back Our Schools

Two School Board seats up for grabs on August 30th.

The time for action has come.
