Lone Democrat on Cabinet Wants to Build Party

January 2nd, 2007 by Mike Vasilinda

While Democrats have a plurality of registered voters, they are still a minority when it comes to sharing power in the state capitol. As the only Democrat elected statewide and sent to Tallahassee, CFO Alex Sink says she wants to work to build a stronger party.

“Well, I’m certainly thrilled as a democrat to hold a statewide elective position. I believe that a strong democracy rests on a two party system and I’m going to work very hard to strengthen and build the Democratic Party because I think the balance of opinion and having diversity of opinion leads to better decisions for the people of our state.”

The only other Democrat elected statewide is US Senator Bill Nelson. Nelson was on hand for today’s inauguration and says Charlie Crist’s call for an end to political bickering between Democrats and Republicans is a breath of fresh air.

Nelson was reelected in a landslide this past.
