2010 is set to be a watershed year in Florida politics. For the first time in Florida history, every cabinet position is open. There's a U.S. Senate seat open. Half of the state Senate seats are available, as are ALL state House of Representatives positions. There are also constitutional ballot initiatives that could significantly impact the economy. The PAC for the Florida Realtors recommends voting 'NO' on Amendment 4.

The bursting of the housing bubble had significant impact Florida's economy. If the realtors want a "no" vote, then figuring out why would be a good place to start.

^^ I'll pass your comments along. And for the record, I did not say whether I was either in favor of or opposed to Amendment 4. On the surface, it sounds like a good idea, but I haven't thoroughly researched the advantages versus the disadvantages. What are your thoughts?

I'm not totally sure. I'm a nature lover, but I understand that if people want to develop land that's their right. I just think that every area around the world needs to develop smartly and in a sustainable way. Plus there is so much developed land that has been left as blight. I wish that cities would fix up their old run down parts of town before clearly land to make another new part of town.

To be clear, I'm not a Floridian yet. But I love the state and plan on moving there in the future. I love Florida for its natural beauty and wildlife, not the suburbs and strip malls.
