"Marion County is Moving Forward, And We're Starting With Our Children" -- Public Education Advocate Ray Seaman on Yes For Marion Schools

(I mentioned in the Site News that I'm dropping the podcast for a while, but still doing interviews. Here's my first "print-only" interview, a follow-up on an interview from April.)

“It’s time to stop letting the shrill and reactionary few determine the fate of so many. Let’s show ourselves and our neighbors that for the first time in a very long time Marion County is moving forward, and we’re starting with our children.” - Ray Seaman

Ray Seaman is the Founder of the Awake the State movement and the Online Director for Progress Florida. I interviewed him back in April; you can read it here, or download the podcast here. We talked about a lot of different things, but five months later I was curious how exactly his Marions United campaign is going, as well as how progressives and conservatives approach Get Out the Vote efforts here in Florida. Here are his emailed responses to my questions.
