Happy were able to head home for Sunday night, but so many people in Florida won’t be able to do the same. I’ll be making a donation to the Florida Disaster Fund to get things started, and I’m hoping the rest of the NFL family in our state will follow suit volunteerflorida.org/donatef…

Acknowledging the coordinated efforts of both @POTUS and @GovRonDeSantis - That’s refreshing from my current Representative.

The NRA and supporters of relaxed gun laws often cite mental health as the primary reason for school shootings and gun violence in the United States. Today, 205 Republicans voted against funding school-based mental health services.

Besides their never ending “RETWEET IF” tweets, $577,000 of the $797,000 they raised this cycle went directly to "fundraising consultants," with no contributions to candidates. The top consultant the 2 brothers of Occupy Democrats paid - themselves, at the price tag of $250,000.

The Daily Beast and Politifact have reported on the shady practices of the two brothers behind Occupy Democrats previously. Most recently their questionable fund raising and self-payments were explored in Newsweek. newsweek.com/occupy-democrat…

Hurricanes and natural disasters can be triggering for many recovering alcoholics and addicts. If you are fighting the urge right now, get to a meeting! If you can’t, find one online. Don’t fight this daily battle alone. We have your six! #ODAAT

Storm Update - On Friday, we will assess damage to schools, close down shelter operations (once we confirm with the city that shelters are closed), and begin clean-up on our 155 campuses. We will announce a final decision regarding Monday school activities on Saturday morning.

How many more Floridians could have been evacuated with the $12 million @GovRonDeSantis is using to relocate migrants from Texas?

Watching Lizzo play that flute was so moving. If you feel anything other than joy seeing this, I feel sorry for you.
I want to watch a tv series of just @lizzo playing famous and rare instruments. Video: @librarycongress

Local reporters, stop showing videos and pictures of people at the beach or retweeting their pictures. You’re encouraging this dangerous activity. THE BEACHES ARE CLOSED!
The beaches of Jacksonville are CLOSED! This is not the time to go “check it out.” And certainly, DO NOT GET IN THE WATER. Not only are you risking your life, but the lives of those who would have to respond.
