Sandy Parker, author of Sparker’s Soapbox, will speak about our Collier County elections as her mission is to encourage informed voting. She will explain that Florida is a “closed primary” state and how the legality of Florida’s “write-in loophole” has shaped Collier County’s political environment using Byron Daniels 2020 election to Congress and the election last year of Chris Hall and Daniel Kowal to the Collier County Commission as examples. She will also give a heads-up on the more than two dozen state and local offices that will be on the August 2024 ballet.
Sandy received her BA in American Studies from Rutgers University and an MBA from the Wharton School. She retired as a Vice President and Treasurer of the Dun & Bradstreet Corporation.
