CF100: 2017 07 23 – A Tuesday Tradition

Each week, the Orlando Sentinel asks two questions of 100 community leaders in Central Florida. Those with access to the online Sentinel can read all of this week’s 100-word responses when there are published online,  usually late Saturday. For those without access, my responses are below. Selected responses appear in the Sunday print edition.

What was the biggest story of the week?

Although it started as an event to take place for the first 100 day of the current administration, the Tuesday Rally in front of Senator Rubio’s downtown Orlando office has become an institution. Every week a diverse and dedication group of folks gathers to highlight issues brewing in Washington. Recent highlights have been healthcare and Russia. This is just one way that people are making sure that we do not accept our current situation as normal. It is one way, though certainly not the only way, we practice democracy and ensure that the voices of the people are heard.

What will be the biggest story in the coming week?

No offering this week.


The series focuses on state and local news.
