Tuesday Morning Political Headlines: Orange Sick Time Most Likely Gone, Long vs. Grayson at Tiger Bay

In Uncategorized on September 18, 2012 at 1:20 pm

It was a busy Monday that had political fireworks on multiple fronts in Central Florida.

The Orange County Sick Time Measure will most likely fail to make it on the November ballot. The 3 judge panel ruled in favor of the Activists that submitted the petitions that would allow voters to make the call on the measure that would force business owners with more than 15 employees to award them sick time. The court however, granted the county time to reply and that time extends beyond the deadline for printing November ballots.

Then, at Tiger Bay we had Todd Long vs. Alan Grayson. If you’re a local politico, this showdown requires no introduction. If not, both men aren’t shy about presenting their opinions and pulled no punches during the debate yesterday. That full debate can be watched HERE.
