Progressive Club to hold monthly meeting
The Progressive Club of the Islands will hold its virtual monthly meeting on Oct. 15 at 4 p.m.
The guest speakers will be Dr. Cindy Banyai, Todd Truax and Maureen Porras, three candidates who have been vetted and endorsed by the club. The meeting is a chance for voters to meet and question all three. Given the restrictions of COVID-19, many people have not had the opportunity to personally interact and question candidates seeking their support.
Banyai, a small business owner in Fort Myers and an adjunct instructor with Florida Gulf Coast University’s Department of Political Science and Public Administration, is running for the U.S. House District 19 seat that is being vacated by Congressman Francis Rooney. The district covers Lee and Collier counties.
Truax has experience as a healthcare administrator, college instructor, social worker, salesman and volunteer in community agencies. He is running for the District 3 seat on the Lee County Board of County Commissioners.
Porras, a prominent immigration lawyer, is running for the Florida House District 105 seat. The district covers parts of Broward, Collier and Miami-Dade and will not be on local ballots. However, given the importance of the House in redistricting following the Census, the seat will affect all Florida voters.
