Oakland Park – The National Women's Political Caucus (NWPC), Gwen Cherry Chapter, recommends Mark LaFontaine for the District 92 House seat.  Founded in 1971, the NWPC is a bipartisan, multicultural grassroots organization designed to achieve equality for all women.  The Gwen Cherry Chapter represents Broward County.
"I welcome the support of the National Women's Political Caucus, because it underscores that my campaign is reaching out to everyone in the district," LaFontaine said.  "The NWPC knows how my community activism and grassroots background will benefit the residents of the district as I work for them in Tallahassee."
In addition to the NWPC, LaFontaine has been endorsed by the Broward County Council of Professional Firefighters; the Florida Professional Firefighters; Florida AFL-CIO; Gay & Lesbian Victory Fund; Equality Florida; US Rep. Barney Frank, chair of the House Financial Services Committee; and Florida Rep. Kelly Skidmore, as well as a host of Broward's other leaders.
Owner of a successful accounting practice based in Oakland Park, LaFontaine is a board member of Oakland Park Main Street, which is guiding that city's development, and also has been a member of the Fort Lauderdale Audit Advisory Board, which oversees the city's finances.  He promises to help bring fiscal accountability to Tallahassee and to continue reforms of property taxes and insurance.
Florida House District 92 includes parts of Deerfield Beach, North Lauderdale, Oakland Park, Lazy Lake, Poinsettia Heights, Pompano Beach, Tamarac, Victoria Park and Wilton Manors.

State Rep. Darryl Rouson (D-St Pete) got caught making homophobic comments on youtube. He has a Democratic primary opponent who appears to be getting some traction.

Here is the link to the story about Darryl Rouson's anti-gay comments and Republican ties
