Powell to Declare Candidacy for House District 39
Central Florida native, minister, community leader, veteran television and radio talk show host, speaker and business woman, Pam Powell, will declare her candidacy for State House Of Representative in Florida’s 39th District, in 2012. The incumbent, State Representative Geraldine Thompson, has announced her candidacy for the Florida State Senate.
On Thursday, September 15, 2011, before a gathering of friends, family, and supporters, Reverend Pam Powell will kick off her campaign at Chef Eddies’s Restaurant, 3214 Orange Center Blvd., Orl. Fl., at 5:45 p.m. The restaurant is located in the historic district of Washington Shores, which served as campaign headquarters to our 1st African American Elected State Representative, Dr. Alzo Reddick and hosted many dignitaries including Rep. Dick Batchelor, Senator Bob Graham and several Presidential candidates.
“Today, I formally announce my campaign for State Representative for Florida’s 39th district. Many of you know me as a neighbor, community servant, minister and entrepreneur, having been privileged to serve the Orlando Community for over four decades.
“Be it also known, that I am fully committed to ensuring that your interests (the esteemed constituency of District 39) will be served and that your voices will not only be heard, but that you will also be vehemently represented and respected. My sincere and very earnest commitment is to work diligently towards the ends of empowering, prospering and bettering our greatly diverse and stratigically situated community.
“I am acutely sensitive to the issues which adversely affect us, which include, but are not limited to: the overall declining economic climate of our communities; the need for more jobs and small business opportunities; the growing unemployment rate (particularly affecting our district); drastic cuts in the education budget; voter suppression efforts prompted by altering election laws (harboring the potential to adversely affect our working people) … just to name a few.
“My campaign for The State house is to make a positive difference in and for my community and to work with other policy makers in a bipartisan way as to safeguard the prosperity and liberties of the constituents of the 39th District. I will not waiver in my duties and commitments, as I am a candidate pledged to “working, for the people”.
It is my intention to broadly communicate our campaign ideas and agenda throughout District 39.
“I will be a tireless advocate for all whom I represent, as we strive to remain POSITIVE, PASSIONATE, PERSISTENT, PATIENT, PRAYERFUL , working together to become POWERFUL and PROSPEROUS, so that we can all experience “the thrill of victory, rather than the agony of defeat”, in our lives.
“I ask that you join me, as ours will be a campaign of accessibility, new and innovative ideas and real hope for the future of our community and our country. God bless America, God bless Orlando and God bless District 39!!!”
