    A statewide moratorium on evictions and foreclosures has been extended and is now slated to expire on August 1st. Once the moratorium is lifted some fear a massive onslaught of evictions.

    Need help paying your bills?

    Your first step is to dial 211 on your phone and follow the prompts. Or, you may visit the 2-1-1 website at www.211.org and enter your Zip Code. Follow the on-screen prompts.  This puts you in touch with the North Florida chapter of the United Way, where you may be able to receive help in all areas of need (not just electric bill payment assistance).

    SECO Energy Pennies from Heaven Program

    SECO Energy’s “Pennies from Heaven Program” was established to make a difference locally one penny at a time.  

    NOTE:  The Villages Democratic Club donated $3,000.00 to Pennies from Heaven in June. A thank you letter received from SECO’s CEO can be seen in the link below.

    SECO Letter-062220.pdf

    SECO members who enroll in Pennies from Heaven agree to have their bill rounded up to the nearest dollar.  According to SECO, THIS MEANS THAT, AT MOST, YOUR MONTHLY ELECTRIC BILL WOULD INCREASE BY $0.99. 

    The extra pennies are donated to support allocations by social service agencies for bill payment assistance. These pennies also allow SECO to provide support to worthy causes in their service area.

    To enroll in Pennies from Heaven, you may click the following link in your web browser to go to their website and fill out a form:

    You will need your SECO account number to complete the form.

    Joining FDP Chair Terrie Rizzo on Saturday, June 18 at 6pm ET are Vice President Joe Biden, House Majority Whip Rep. Jim Clyburn, DNC Chairman Tom Perez, and Florida Commissioner of Agriculture & Consumer Services Nikki Fried.

    We are so excited to welcome Vice President Biden back to the state of Florida and to our annual Leadership Blue Gala. Be sure to join us to hear his message for Florida Democrats!

    The 2020 Leadership Blue Virtual Gala will begin at 6pm ET on Saturday, July 18. While the virtual convention will be streamed publicly to Facebook and YouTube throughout the weekend, the gala is a separately ticketed event.

    All funds directly benefit FDP programs that are critical in creating the electorate we need to win up and down the ballot on November 3rd.

    You can see the tentative weekend schedule and purchase gala tickets at leadershipblue.com.

    The Florida Democratic Party is committed to providing a Leadership Blue 2020 convention experience that is accessible to the widest possible audience, regardless of circumstance and ability.

    More than 400 Villages Democratic Club members responded last week to a brief survey sent by the Board of Directors, asking how they might prefer to meet next.  As you can see in the graphics below, members overwhelmingly chose a virtual meeting, expressing a desire for collective actions that allow people to stay safest from the corona virus.

    The Board is evaluating your responses and will shortly discuss options and present them to you.

    Thanks for participating and for your determination to find ways to help our candidates.
