been in more than a decade. The seasonally-adjusted
state unemployment rate in July was 3.7 percent. The
nation’s was 3.9 percent. The state has gained about
210,600 jobs over the last year, a 2.5 percent increase.

Dossantos said barring for extraordinary events,
St. Lucie’s common summer jobs slump should be
close to ending. He said not-seasonally-adjusted un-
employment rates will fall below the 5 percent line.
“Come fall, I think we’ll see it in the 4 (percent range),
or high 3,” he said.

There is a rub to the positive numbers.
“One thing we’ve noticed is the labor market is
tight, so the employers are casting a wider net,” Dos-
santos said. That signals a shrinking available labor
pool, which can slow the growth of new businesses.
If workers aren’t available, companies can’t throw up
shingles.
Dossantos said CareerSource Research Coast is
working with local school districts and will, in com-
ing months, host the inaugural Treasure Coast State of
Jobs Conference.
The aim is to convince high school youths that op-
portunity is at their feet, so they join the local work-
force out of high school and after college.
“We’re trying to develop (worker) pipelines on
demand for the Treasure Coast,” Dossantos ex-
plained. 

Let’s Set The Record
Straight!

A Lot Of “Fake News”
Is Being Distributed By

My Opponent.

HERE ARE THE FACTS!

A Candidate And Her Enemies.....

Written by David DiCrescenzo, Publisher and American Patriot.

Belinda Keiser is doing well, and I can prove it. Before I sat down with her, I
learned that she has made lots of friends, and she has also made some potent
enemies; the kind of enemies that spew lots of half-truths and flat out lies. As Sir
Winston Churchill said, “You have enemies? Good. That means you’ve stood
up for something, sometime in your life.” Good job Belinda.

There are mailers claiming she’s weak on immigration, and that she doesn’t live
in the 25th District where she’s running, that she owns property in Broward
County, and all sorts of things to paint her in a bad light. I imagine that if I were
running against her and didn’t really have anything going for me, I’d do some of the same stuff. I’d probably dig up anything that people
might believe and that sounds plausible, because even if it is all nonsense, it’s out there and all the retractions and apologies in the world
can’t change that people heard and believe the nonsense.

So what to do in the face of all that…?! She could spend time and resources going after the perpetrator(s) of such nonsense; but she
isn’t wasting a moment on it. Instead, she is getting out there and meeting with the people in the district,
talking about what’s important to them and how she plans on addressing their concerns. She explains her
qualifications and successes; how while she has lived in other areas, her business interests, (not the least of
which is a major and growing University) have her firmly rooted in the district. She owned a property there
where she was a caretaker for her father.

They spit out the very real fact that she once ran for office as a Democrat but became a Republican. Maybe Cong. Allen West and Belinda Keiser
I’m the only one who bothered to ask her why; however, her answer is simple and straight forward enough.
Raised in the north of Florida where the borders to our northern neighbors are as fuzzy as a Georgia Peach,
she was what was once referred to as a “Dixie-Crat” Those were Democrats who actually loved America
and what she stands for; the type who understood what the Founders had in mind. The type of right thinking
Democrats who were around before the entire party got hijacked by a lunatic fringe, left wing, anti-American
ideology.

So yeah, she was a #walkaway before it was
cool. Make no mistake, she didn’t leave the
party, the party left her and countless others.
