David vs Goliath Dist 79
A Southwest Florida man, who says his dreams of public service have been unfairly crushed, is now getting help in his battle to fight back.
Democrat Larry Aguilar is running for Florida House seat 79 (which covers much of northeast Lee County) against incumbent Republican Matt Caldwell.
At this point, however, Aguilar isn’t on the ballot.
The Division of Elections says he didn’t submit his paperwork in time.
But time-stamps from certified mail paint a different picture.
“I’ve again confirmed that we did send someone Friday morning and the post office would not release it to him for pick up and he even went back after the qualifying period was over Friday afternoon and it was not available.” said Brittany Lesser Communications Director Florida Department of State
Attorneys representing the Florida State Democratic Party, along with Aguilar’s own legal counsel, are ready to take action against the state election office.
