Another Month Passes and DeSantis Fails to Convene Clemency Board

1 min read

TALLAHASSEE — In response to DeSantis’ decision to postpone the Florida Cabinet and Clemency board meetings yet again, the Florida Democratic Party Chair Terrie Rizzo released the following statement: “It is completely unacceptable that DeSantis continues to ignore his constitutional responsibility to convene the Florida Cabinet.

Not only is DeSantis failing to resolve critical issues facing Florida during a time of crisis, he is also denying Floridians, time and time again, the opportunity to restore their voting rights through the clemency process. I commend Commissioner Fried for fighting to see that the Cabinet works as it is supposed to do and continuing to push to address the pressing issues facing our state.”  Related content:  Miami Herald – What are you accomplishing by muzzling Nikki Fried, Gov.

That is why we champion the middle class and cherish the principle that all Floridians should have the opportunity to work hard and succeed. That is why we will never stop fighting for better public schools, because education is the surest path to a better life for millions.

From standing for affordable health care and better schools to fighting for civil rights and access to the ballot box, Florida Democrats are leading every day to move our state forward.
