At this point, we know what to expect from Ron DeSantis’s town hall so we wanted to make sure folks know what he won’t mention:
Ron DeSantis is prioritizing culture wars and risking higher taxes for his constituents instead of delivering results.

WFTB9: “What would dissolving Disney’s Reedy Creek mean for local taxpayers?… According to lawmakers, though, there is as much as $1 billion in debt on the balance sheets that for which taxpayers would become responsible, possibly amounting to as much as thousands of dollars per household.”
While DeSantis chases his political ambitions across the country, Floridians are facing skyrocketing housing prices, some of the highest health care costs in the country, and now potentially a huge tax increase for hundreds of thousands of Floridians.
