Florida Representative Marleene O'Toole, who represents The Villages, was invited to attend to address the same issues and respectively declined.

In addition Senator Bill Nelson was represented by his assistant Lisa Marshall, who was able to discuss the attempt by Governor Rick Scott not to implement the Affordable Health Care act in Florida plus the down side not to accept the funding for the High Speed Rail in Florida which would have created more that 22,000 jobs.

We had released press releases to The Daily Sun plus delivered them in person .WE were finally contaed by a representative of The Daily Sunyet yet No one showed up. However US Representative Cliff Stearns speaks on the same day IN The Villages and it makes the front page of the Local section of the Daily Sun.

Please explain why Citizens of Florida who happen to live in The Villages are deprived of vital important information or only provided selected biased articles, by the printed press just because they Live In The Villages.
I do not understand why you would be confused here. You have a Congressman who represents The Villages and a State Legislator who lives some 255 miles away from the Villages speaking the same day. The Congressman is a senior member of the majority party in the House of Representatives and was crucial in bringing the the new VA Clinic to the Villages rather than to Ocala.

One of these two men actively represents The Villages while the other is concerned with his home district - Broward County. Had Senator Nelson shown up in person, more coverage of the Democratic Club meeting would have been appropriate. In addition, while open to everyone, the meeting of the Villages Democratic Club was just that - a meeting of Democrats living in the Villages. Congressman Stearns' meeting was an open meeting of all of his constituents, regardless of political philosophy.

I agree that The Daily Sun is conservative, but I believe in this case they went to the news rather than a party meeting.
