Up in Newberry, Florida, just a few miles outside Gainesville, our party has found its first sitting officeholder! Popular local mayor Jordan Marlowe recently switched his registration to our newly formed state Forward Party, making him the first elected officeholder in the nation to be registered officially with our nascent movement.
As Mayor Marlowe puts it, "I’ve never really felt at home in either of the two main political parties. Today it is my pleasure to officially announce that I am ready to move ‘Forward.’ I’m ready to move Newberry forward, move our county forward, and move this country forward. Together we can solve problems. Together we can get things done. Let’s move forward together.”
It's the latest in long line of Forward Florida milestones, and you can read the full story here.
