A Miami Herald headline following the November 2014 elections read: A Fight Over Democratic Leadership in Florida.

In its last meeting, the Bradenton City Council engaged in some shady business, hastily approving plans for a major riverfront apartment project involving a politically connected developer without having properly advertised the item or otherwise soliciting public input.

Who doesn't want to reduce the amount of their electric bill, increase the value of their home, protect themselves against rising energy costs and remove billions of metric tons of global warming pollution from ever being produced? The answer is: your elected officials.
