MAGGIE’S LIST PROUDLY ANNOUNCES FORMER FLORIDA LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR JENNIFER CARROLL AS NEW NATIONAL SPOKESWOMAN

A patriot and a servant ready to elect more conservative women to office

Jennifer Carroll

Our nation’s Independence Day is upon us and the time is fitting to reflect on the accomplishments and advancements of this great nation. One of those reflections is how far our nation has come to embracing and including women in the work place and in government. As we celebrate women in 2019, Maggie’s List is excited to announce that former Florida Lieutenant Governor Jennifer Carroll will be the new National Spokeswoman for the organization.

Jennifer emigrated with her parents from the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago at the age of eight. She and her family assimilated in the United States and embraced the opportunities afforded them. Jennifer is no stranger to challenges and adversity having to adapt to a new culture as a young child, to joining the Navy as a jet mechanic in a field that was male dominated and unwelcoming at the time. She worked hard and ascended to higher heights when she received a commission and after 20 years retired as a highly decorated Navy Lieutenant Commander.

Jennifer gives credit to her training and experience in the armed forces for her successes in government. She was the first black Republican female elected to the Florida legislature and as Florida’s Lieutenant Governor.

“My accomplishments in the military, in government and serving on many non-profit boards has been my way of giving back to a nation that embraced my family and opened doors that may not have been,” states Jennifer. “My role as a national spokeswoman for Maggie’s List is to encourage conservative women to take the challenge and run for congress and help further expand diversity among the congressional ranks for us to have a true representative government.”

“This Independence Day I hope all citizens and those who adopted the United States as their home, would give appreciation for the liberty and freedom so many take for granted, said Jennifer. “I know for many the struggles still exists, but I believe the work of Maggie’s List in its support of conservative women running and elected to congress will help bring about greater opportunities, improvements and independence,” continues Carroll.

“Maggie’s List is ecstatic to have a mom, grandmother, Veteran, former legislator, former Lt. Governor and Maggie’s List Founding Member as our National Spokeswoman. She has done it all with honor, grace and integrity. There is no one more qualified than Jennifer to do this job of advancing the compassionate conservative cause to elect more women in government,” states Maggie’s List National Chair, Sandra Mortham.

What Happens in Politics Next?

Russell Tuff
Collier County Republican Chairman

Last weekend, I literally laughed out loud watching an evening news segment during which a Democratic candidate for President offered his big idea of giving all adults $1,000 per month. It appears to be a competition to see how much taxpayer money these candidates can offer up to the masses. I mean really, who wouldn’t want an extra $1,000 per month? The problem is, how to pay for it.

While President Donald Trump’s New York street language often confronts my “Minnesota Nice” upbringing, I can’t ignore his success and his ability to offer real solutions to our nation’s economic and domestic woes.

We’re seeing upward mobility in the job markets, the lowest unemployment rates in history across the various demographic categories, and continued progress towards keeping our enemies at bay.

While I wasn’t raised to speak like Trump, the reality has set in for me that to make progress under our current legislative conditions, the mold has to be broken.

Our legislators of all parties have failed us. They have reached a stalemate. Smashing through the political stand-still can only be accomplished by someone who can stand up to political correctness at a time when the national media would rather encourage outrage rather than provide meaningful analysis. It’s soul searching time for the media and Congress.

Our legislators, like our media, have misplaced their charge of serving the public. They serve their own agendas and are not tending to their constituents’ best interests. Media pays reporters cash for clicks rather than aiming for excellence in reporting and long-term credibility. Congressmen position themselves for re-election by appealing to emotions rather than taking appropriate actions to improve the state of our country.

The major media and Congress have approval ratings that are lower than the President’s, yet they insist on continuing business as usual.

The President’s approval rating continues to improve despite his brash methods. He is moving America forward the only way it can be done under the current climate.

Those who don’t appreciate Trump will have to continue to contend with him until our elected officials in Congress begin to work for America’s improvement. Roaring crowds at Trump rallies are the envy of his opponents and the bane of his detractors. Could the Media and Congress be missing something?

Here is a list of successes of the Trump administration to write a letter to the editor about:

Social Media “Don’t’s When Promoting on Social Media

Here Are Some Don’t’s For Social Media

Try to do everything. Remember your goal. How can you use social media to achieve it? Post only when it make sense, and where the content works (on the right platform).

Forget that everything is public. No matter what your privacy settings are, everything on social media can be documented!

Engage with trolls. Don’t get into fights on social media. It never wins anything for anyone.

Go negative. It’s a bad idea. Always stay positive!

Treat social media as a soap box. Remember, social media is a group activity. It’s a tool for engagement, not a place for arguments and rants.

Fight with trolls. Did we already say that? Well, seriously don’t.

Obsess over timing. Timing is important… but not that important. Consistency is much more important than timing.

Join the Trump Watch Party – Create Your Own

Create a “Watch Trump Party” in your home, invite guests, and get inspired as President Donald J Trump holds a Rally in Orlando on Tuesday, June 18th. He is expected to kick off his re-election campaign.

How can you help spread the word? Donald Trump wants to spread a positive message, and capture voters by attraction, not trashing his opponents.

Below are some topics to share in letters to the editor, social media, and talks with others. Click Here to a link on our website to make it easy way to write a letter to the editor.
