Terry Power Files Residency Violation by Opponent

Letter returned to Clerk of the Court

REPUBLICAN HOUSE CANDIDATE TERRANCE POWER FILES RESIDENCY VIOLATION COMPLAINT WITH SPEAKER CORCORAN

     Florida House Candidate Terrance Power has filed a formal complaint with Speaker Richard Corcoran asking him to remove James Grant from office due to residency violations.


     The Florida Constitution provides that members of the Florida House of Representatives must reside within the boundaries of their District. It has become overwhelmingly apparent that Grant has completely violated this requirement.


     Local investigative reporter Mike Deeson first broke the story last week that Grant does not claim a Homestead Exemption on the property that he has owned since September 2012. There is also ample documentation of several letters being returned to the Clerk of the Hillsborough County Court noting that Grant had “Moved”, and “Left No Address”.


    This is just the latest surprise in a long string of developments as Grant attempts to be elected to serve for a ninth consecutive year in office in clear violation of Florida’s Term Limit laws. The discovery that he has funneled over $300,000 (so far) from his campaign account and PAC to his business partner/girlfriend/”Campaign Manager” even though he was virtually unopposed since his original election to the Florida House in 2010 was also recently discovered.....not to mention the 24 page Grand Jury report involving millions of dollars of squandered taxpayer money in the infamous Hardee County IDA fiasco. It’s beyond shameless.


     The voters deserve better. And they will get that in November 2018!

Terry Power Files Suit To Enforce Term Limit Laws

 

For Immediate Release

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.
