July 8, 2010 - PRLog -- All registered voters in Florida House District 86 will have a choice on August 24th. Carole Kaye qualified for the ballot on Thursday, June 17th becoming the only resident candidate in the Democratic primary. Kaye, who has lived in the district for the past five years, is running as a grassroots progressive on a platform advocating social responsibility, economic innovation, protection of rights, and improving democracy in Florida.

In citing her motives for running the candidate said, "The voters of this district deserve a choice and I feel once they get to know me and my policy solutions to serious public problems, I will earn their vote." In referencing the voters, Kaye cited the little known, and unadvertised, fact that when the only contested election in a district is one party's primary, as is the case in 86, all registered voters within that district may vote in that primary. August 24th will be the only day residents of District 86 will be able to cast a vote for their State Representative.

Kaye noted that she is pressing on in the face of undemocratic obstacles to her candidacy, "Despite the opinion of behind the scenes power-brokers, issues of social justice are core values of the district I wish to serve. As part of the democratic process, I anticipated effective and open public discourse in my primary. Instead I have an opponent who is not a resident of District 86 refusing to debate me, local clubs that will not permit me to speak, and threats of harm to me for remaining in the race."

Florida State House District 86 includes parts of Boca Raton, Delray Beach, and Boynton Beach.
