Renee Is For The People!

In CITRUS COUNTY DISTRICT 1 VOTE TODAY, Renee Christopher-McPheeters, Renee Is For The People! on kp08 at 311209

Renee Christopher McPheeters-The People's candidate, you can vote today, Aug. 9, 2012 through Saturday Aug. 11, 2012 and the polls will be opened on Tuesday Aug 14, 2012   EYEONCITRUS.COM

Even though I appreciate the many times the Citrus County Chronicle has published my letters, and the political coverage they have provided me, including the Chronicle Forum, I was still not expecting the Chronicle’s endorsement.  And of course, I was not disappointed when they did not endorse me.

However, they failed to mention that in 2008, I received 46.09% of the votes from the Citizens’ of Citrus County.  Many have told me in no uncertain terms that they shall be voting for me again.  To them I say thank you for your vote of confidence.

The Chronicle Editorial Board referred to me as a "political activist" but they failed to explain why they have done so.  I want the readers to know that I am the only candidate running in District 1 that publicly opposed the Ottawa and Meadowcrest multi-million dollar BOCC giveaways while one of my opponents pushed and voted for it.  No other candidate stepped up to the plate as I did to fight for the citizens in our community.

I also publicly opposed the unconstitutional Crystal River ordinance that restricts the Flying of U.S. Flags which reached the national media including FOX News.  This was supported by  my other opponent who is a member of the Crystal River Council that voted for this flag ordinance.

I have also stood firm and spoken successfully before local governmental entities to protect children from pornography and for a 9/11/01 Memorial, the Public Service Commission and the BOCC -  specifically against Progress Energy rate hikes and for a Resolution stating just that.

My political activities are not new, nor where they undertaken because I was part of a political circle.   I participated because there was a need to push back against unwarranted government dictates.  And, I have no intention on remaining silent in support of the status quo if elected either.  Governments are instituted to protect your rights, and I promise to do that.

The Chronicle also failed to mention my political platform regarding being on  BOCC Agendas for a Conservation Land Acquisition Fund, an Ethics Commission, and for providing a Senior Homestead Exemption for seniors whose property values and earnings are below the average.  Additionally, they did not mention either that I have been against the Interlocal Centralized Sewer Agreement that both of my opponents voted for.  Regardless, of how it is presented, the project will negatively affect many seniors to the extent that many could lose their homes.

My work in the community includes the First Official 9/11/01 Memorial in Citrus County with a part from the World Trade Center and laser art of the three tragic scenes – now on display in the Citrus County School System for the education of all of the youth of our county. Also, out of concern for Children of Citrus County and outside of Citrus, I have obtained Nine Original Proclamations Against Child Pornography from two Counties, Marion and Citrus and Seven Cities.

I would also like to remind the women voters of our county that Citrus County is comprised of approximately 54% women, but we do not have comparable representation in our government.   We need to break up the "little boys club" and balance the equation.

Lastly, I want to reiterate again that contrary to what the Chronicle said, and in addition to the aforementioned information for which I have been labeled a "political activist," I do have a very serious platform. I consider myself to be a concerned citizen  motivated from the heart – because I care about the Citizens of Citrus County.  I am against unnecessary spending, borrowing and tax increases which seems to be the new norm in our county government.  We need to lower our debt, stick to a reasonable budget, and tighten our belts the same way the taxpayers of our community have been forced to do during these difficult economic times. I am for BOCC funding of the Small Business Development Center, contrary to the incumbent – who prefers hiring a lobbyist for Port Citrus instead. I support existing businesses and will work to attract others to our community to provide more jobs.

Government must set an example and not bury their heads in the sand while kicking the can down the road for others to address.  That is not proper government representation.

If you agree and believe that we must put our financial house in order, and that the people must have a voice – then I ask for your vote.  I do solemnly promise you that I will take my oath of office seriously, and to do my very best to represent all the Citizens of our County and not just a chosen few.  I think it is also important to mention that I have recently won the tea party straw poll.

My door will always remain open to all because I will never forget who elected me and who I represent. 

I respectfully request your vote.

Renee Christopher-McPheeters

Candidate For Citrus County Commissioner, District 1

Please have the following Letter to the Editor published as the 7/8 Out
the Window implies that my last name is illegitimate/fictitional and
that I have a "low name" recognition in all places except the "west
side " of Citrus County - these theories are untrue!

Thanks and have a good day!

Renee

In response to the 7/8/12 "Out the Window" article, I do take exception to the reference to myself, Rene Christopher-McPheeters, Candidate for Citrus County Commission, District 1, as "changing" my name, as "Christopher" was my last name at birth, and as having "low name recognition", being in fact, well known throughout Citrus County, this is a very unfair and biased article, and I truly feel that I deserve having my reply published! Instead, both of my opponents in this District 1, race for county commissioner, fall into your "low name" category: as on the campaign trail throughout the county, I have found that both of my opponents - the incumbent commissioner and incumbent councilman are either unknown or are known and the Citizens are "tired" of their "good old boy" cronyism. Whereas, I have stood for the Citizens not only on the "west side" issues such as the Unfair Crystal River Invalid Annexation (one opponent was for), the Unfair Interlocal Sewer Agreement (both opponents voted for) and the restriction of Flying US Flags(one opponent voted for/the other did not oppose) The publisher was correct in referring to myself as a "citizen activist" yet he failed to note that I have stood on countywide issues, as the only District 1, Citrus County Commission Candidate: Against the "Ottawa Fiasco"/Meadowcrest Multi-Million Dollar Giveaways on the Most Important BOCC Voting Days! Furthermore, many throughout Citrus County are aware of my ongoing project against child-porn: by Proclamation - receiving a Citrus BOCC Proclamation Against Child Pornography, a BOCC Resolution Against Progress Energy Rate Hikes, and also being Founder of the First Official 9/11/01 Memorial in Citrus County!

I Am A Countywide Activist Candidate For The People!
