A retired police officer, a realtor, a property manager, an insurance agent and financial planner are currently responsible for leading the county. Three of the five were political appointees. Between them they hold four-year degrees in the following subjects: political science, communications, and business. One of them holds a two-year degree in criminal justice. Is it any wonder, when faced with a global pandemic, we find their leadership, lacking?
They ignored the pleas for a stay at home order from the leading physician and CEO of Lee Health System, Dr. Larry Antonucci. Instead, they look to the office that appointed them for guidance, the Governor of Florida, a lawyer.
When faced with a fire, you call a fireman, when faced with a leak, you call a plumber, when stricken with an illness you call an attorney?
Now is the time to take the advice of medical professionals, epidemiologists, infection disease scientists, not a bunch of political appointees nervous about disappointing their political benefactors.
Our lives are at stake, their lives are at stake, and we are faced with the prospect of every man for himself, as they dither and delay a cohesive plan for testing, tracking, isolation and treatment.
This is not a hurricane. You cannot cluster in the bunker of The Emergency Operations Center and await the passing of wind, rain and floods. This pandemic requires an experienced leader with a background, license and continuous training in emergency operations, logistical planning, universal precautions and infectious disease control and management.
This county needs a leader with decades of healthcare management experience, a proven history of disaster recovery and front-line leadership in times of panic, fear and grief. A steely eyed, unflappable, rock in the stream, who can weather this viral storm and coordinate an effort to fight back and overcome this foe.
My name is Todd Truax, I am running to be the Commissioner Lee County needs to see us through this challenge and the many more that will follow. I have served this community for the past 22 years as a social worker, healthcare administrator, professor, and community leader. Join me now in this fight for tried and true leadership for Lee county. The election is little more than 6 months away.
