Rep. James Grant's Company Caresync Collapses

292 Floridians Thrown Out of Work With No Notice or Insurance

June 22, 2018 - The saga that never ends with Florida House Rep James Grant took a sad but inevitable turn in late June when the company he founded with Hardee County taxpayer money abruptly shut down.

Employees had been assured at a Monday meeting that the company was on solid financial footing. But by Thursday, they were all out of work and without the ability to even elect COBRA Health Insurance coverage.

Grant made statewide news a few years ago after questions were raised about the $7.25 million he and his partners received from the Hardee County Industrial Development Agency. A Grand Jury Investigation into the matter found that Grant "brought no equity, no start-up capital, no business track record, and no business credibility to the table".


But Grant and his partners still benefited handsomely from the charade.

A State Ethics Investigation was also launched that found wrongdoing by elected officials involved with the scheme. And then there's the Investigative Reporting by ABC Action News watchdog Mike Deeson that really blew the lid off of his games.

Voters have a clear choice in 2018. Ethics and Integrity, or more of James Grant's self-serving games. I'd be honored with your support and your vote in the August 28th Republican Primary.

Together we can #PowerDistrict64!

NO TRESPASSING Signs on Florida's Beaches? Yep!

It's Happening Right Now In Pinellas County!

July 3, 2018 -  Remember to thank House Rep James Grant for voting in favor of this ridiculous bill that went into effect statewide this week. And while some legislators came out to explain that they didn't fully understand the negative ramifications that the bill could have and that they'd work to fix it in 2019, Grant doubled down and defended his indefensible position in a press release from his office. smh.


I'll work with a new team of legislators in 2019 to repeal this disaster. Here's the link to the story by WFTS ABC Action News in Tampa.

TERRY POWER SUES STATE OF FLORIDA TO DEMAND ENFORCEMENT OF FLORIDA'S TERM LIMIT LAWS ON BEHALF OF THE CITIZENS OF DISTRICT 64 AND THE STATE OF FLORIDA


Oldsmar, Florida - Terry Power, Republican candidate for Florida House District 64, filed a lawsuit in Tallahassee this week to demand that the Secretary of State, in his capacity as chief election official, remove incumbent Representative James W. Grant as a candidate for re-election in the Florida House in the August 2018 primary and November 2018 general election.


"Florida voters approved installing term limits in 1992 for their state legislative and executive branch officials by an overwhelming 76.77%. I believe that Representative Grant, who was first elected to the Florida House in November 2010, is ineligible to run for reelection in the Florida House in 2018 due to his having served for eight consecutive years. I believe the Courts will agree with me on this important issue", said Power. 


"To rule against us would have a chilling effect on our term limit laws and open the door to even more shenanigans by career politicians. I am confident that the Courts will stand with the citizens of Florida and grant our request for a Declarative Judgment and remove Representative Grant from the ballot", he added.

 

A native of Buffalo, New York, Terry has lived in North Pinellas County for the past 33 years. He is a successful small business owner and first-time candidate for public office who has pledged to donate his salary as a House Rep to charities located in his District.
