Along the Treasure Coast of Florida, there exists District 32. According to a Dec. 2013 article on TCPalms.com, Senate District 32 runs largely east of Interstate 95 from southern Indian River County to northern Palm Beach County (inclusive of St. Lucie and Martin). The seat is 42 percent registered Republicans, and 33 percent Democrats. Joe Negron, a Stuart Republican and top budget official in the Senate, easily won his 2012 re-election against Stuart Democrat Ray D’Amiano. Negron now faces two challengers; one Democrat and one fellow Republican.

Bruno Moore: “I have always wanted to be in a position to make a difference. I will be vocal about issues that affect our area and I need your help! Come on November!” Bruno Moore is a former traffic reporter for WPTV NewsChannel 5 and disc jockey for WIRK-FM and the Fort Pierce native is a critic of the Republican Party’s tea party faction. He wants to address gang violence in Fort Pierce, raise the minimum wage and focus on the Indian River Lagoon’s pollution problems, according to his campaign’s Facebook page. Moore also is targeting voters age 18-30, a group he considers disenfranchised from the political process. He said he’s a relatable candidate, since he knows firsthand the struggles of unemployment and needing government assistance.
Senator Joe Negron currently represents Senate District 32, which includes parts of Indian River, Martin, Palm Beach and St. Lucie Counties. Senator Negron also serves as chair of the Senate Committee on Appropriations, chair of the Senate Select Committee on Indian River Lagoon and Lake Okeechobee. As appear on website: As your Senator for Senate District 32, thank you for your continued support and commitment to the Treasure Coast. I was born in Palm Beach County, and my family and I are proud to call the Treasure Coast home and raise our family here. I am committed to working with you to ensure we are doing all we can to better our region and great state in Tallahassee. It is vital that we continue down a path of job creation, responsible government spending, lowering taxes and fees, and crafting quality public policy that helps Florida’s families and small businesses flourish for years to come.
With the current three announced candidates, Treasure Coast voters must decide whether to flow with a young Republican with entrepreneur experience and qualities, a hard working Democrat familiar with the struggles of the working class yet optimistic for the future, or continue “as is” with the incumbent. The choice is in the power of the people----as long as our voting rights are not infringed upon, hindered or obstructed in any way regardless of our race, creed, color or financial status. Together, “we the people” stand!
