Well, no. What I was searching for was all I could find in the Pensacola News Journal on a candidate for Governor of the State of Florida, Farid Khavari. Instead, what I got was, ‘Did you mean caviar?’
Dr. Farid Khavari is a candidate for Governor of the State of Florida. Like most serious candidates, they will travel the state and visit the folks, and issue press releases, all in an attempt to get the word out about their platform and to gain some name recognition, and ultimately your vote.
Isn’t it the role of the media to pass along information about such folks? It’s called news. It’s called informing the public, for the public good, and with the public trust, so that the electorate can be as well informed as possible when it comes time to exercise our right to vote.
You will be surprised to know that Khavari has visited the Pensacola area twice in the last month, has issued press releases, and was interviewed by another media outlet after he visited with the Democratic Executive Committee.
That’s why I was disappointed to learn that, aside from my own input in the online comment area of a few relevant newspaper articles, there is no mention about candidate Khavari in the Pensacola News Journal, our predominant and only local daily newspaper, or any other local media.
I happen to support him in his efforts. Yeah, I know, a conservative supporting a democrat. What’s that about? It’s about issues, that’s what.
For a quick primmer about Khavari and his platform for the State of Florida, check these links. You’ll be glad you did.
