Florida Governor Ron DeSantis is regularly vilified by the media.
So, when we see a story where he is getting a good slap on the back, we have to get it out there to everyone.
That is the case with former residents of Democrat-run cities and states who have moved to Florida and cannot believe the difference.
Both Florida and Texas have seen massive amounts of new residents moving to the area during the pandemic.
In most cases, they are very glad they did.
Less crime, fewer restrictions, and much cleaner cities.
Paula Miller was one of them, having left Chicago for Florida.
She stated, “I’m one who told myself when I was younger, ‘I am never moving to Florida. That’s where people go to die.’
“But I’ve changed my mind, and it really didn’t have so much to do with the weather.”
She continued, “The taxes I was paying in Cook County … were getting really insane. My property tax went up $1,000 in one year.
“And I realized that that trend was going to continue.”
Former Chicago resident Lauren Callahan offered similar praise to DeSantis.
She stated, “Our plan was to reassess in the summer of 2022 where we wanted to go, but with COVID and city life in general … we decided to come to Florida in November.”
On the crime issue, she stated, “It was creeping up into the North Side, which is where we lived. … You know, it’s a city, so everywhere has its issues, but it’s typically one of the safer areas. Carjackings, robberies — just to the point where I didn’t feel safe alone outside if it was dark out.
“It just isn’t a good way to live.”
Warren Cohn also recently relocated, stating, “It’s an opportunity to live outside, as well as get some tax benefits.
“And also, it’s a state that has …various freedoms. … I think that the governor has done a good job here allowing people to decide what’s comfortable or not for themselves.”
I don’t know if these people were Republicans or Democrats before they left their cities, but it seems pretty clear we know which way they will be voting in future elections!
Great job, Governor DeSantis!
