Florida 8th District Congressional Candidate Patricia Sullivan
Signs the “Contract from America”
Eustis, Florida – Patricia Sullivan announced today that she has listened to the wishes of her constituents and signed the “Contract from America” a grassroots legislative blueprint for 2010 and beyond.
In signing this bottom-up call for economic conservative and good governance reform, Patricia stated, “This contract embodies the voices of the Tea Party movement and I am honored as a Tea Party Patriot to fight for their voices to be heard”.
Robin Stublin, who helped spearhead this grassroots effort, noted, “We are very glad that Patricia Sullivan is listening to our concerns, and believes wholeheartedly that the people have a very important active role to play in government”.
Grassroots activists from across the country, including the North Lake TEA Party, visited the Contract from America website from February to April to choose their top ten priorities from a list of 21 action items that committed Americans from all walks of life proposed. The top ten issues comprise the final Contract. By asking website visitors to propose and vote on the agenda, the result is not a list handed down from on high by old-bull politicians, but one handed up from the true grassroots in this country. After garnering nearly half a million votes in less than two months, the Contract from America has now been finalized into a blueprint that will serve notice to public officials about what the people want for their future.
When voting was completed, the top ten planks were: (1) Protect the Constitution; (2) Reject Cap and Trade; (3) Demand a Balanced Budget; (4) Enact Fundamental Tax Reform; (5) Restore Fiscal Responsibility and Constitutionally Limited Government in Washington; (6) End Runaway Government Spending; (7) Defund, Repeal, and Replace Government-run Health Care; (8) Pass an ‘All-of-the-Above” Energy Policy; (9) Stop the Pork; and (10) Stop the Tax Hikes.
