"I haven't turned off cable news since 2015. It's on in my house and in my car. I live and breathe it."

- Andrea Doria Kale, North Port Democratic candidate challenging Republican U.S. Representative Greg Steube for Florida's 17th Congressional District

[Politics]  Kale Feels Drawn to Challenge Steube
Jacob Ogles, jacob.ogles@srqme.com

Could a former IT director for Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign hack into voter frustration and pull an upset in a local congressional race? Andrea Doria Kale, a North Port Democrat, filed this year to challenge U.S. Rep. Greg Steube, a Sarasota Republican seeking his third term in Congress.

The long-time New Yorker spent 37 years working for a health care-focused nonprofit and bought a home in North Port in 2015. She initially thought it would be a vacation home but moved here full time in 2016 when National Institutes of Health funding was cut for her employer and she was laid off; the organization ultimately went under. 

Since that time, Kale became increasingly politically interested and involved.

“I haven’t turned off cable news since 2015,” she said. “It’s on in my house and in my car. I live and breathe it.”

She volunteered for Clinton’s presidential campaign and became the state-level IT director and deputy operations director for the campaign’s Florida headquarters in Tampa. But that didn’t go as expected. Donald Trump won, and Republicans running on similar agendas, including Steube, won seats in Congress soon enough. She did volunteer briefly for Joe Biden’s campaign in 2020, and now hopes in Congress to support an agenda close to the Democratic president’s.

She’s no fan of Steube, and took issue when he fought gun legislation in Congress aimed at limiting access to firearms. At at one point, Steube attended a remote congressional committee meeting and showed his own collections of guns and which would be illegal to purchase under a Democratic bill. When someone questioned if the guns were loaded, Steube replied, “I'm at my house. I can do whatever I want with my guns."

With the legislation proposed in the wake of a deadly school shooting in Uvalde, Texas where 19 children died, Kale found the exchange offensive. “I tweeted at him, ‘What’s wrong with you? Have you any shame?” Kale said.

But it’s unclear if a run for Congress will attract more attention than a Twitter notification.  Under a new congressional map in place this year, U.S. House District 17 includes all of Sarasota and Charlotte counties and part of Lee County. Around 57.49% of voters in the 2020 presidential election supported Trump, compared to 44.95% who backed Biden.

Kale hopes she can attract independent voters and disaffected Republicans into the fold with her personal story and demeanor. She also hopes for some voter outrage over federal actions, including the Supreme Court overturn of Roe v. Wade, will generate enthusiasm.

As an 18-year-old, Kale shortly after her father’s death had a child she put up for adoption and did not see again until the girl was 22. The two now have a good relationship as adults. She tells the story even as she supports a woman’s right to choose. And while she wants further gun control, she has owned a firearm since 2020. “I’m a woman alone and I’m in a state where people carry guns,” she said. “I have to learn how to protect myself and my home. So that’s where I am at. I am for responsible gun ownership.”

No-party-affiliate Theodore “Pink Tie” Murray also appears on the general election ballot. The general election is scheduled for Nov. 8.

[New Neighborhood]  Pulte Homes Launches Sales at Northridge in Babcock Ranch

Professionally decorated single-family model homes are now open with sales underway in Northridge, the fourth Pulte Homes-exclusive neighborhood located in Babcock Ranch. Northridge offers 322 homes with sought-after features, flexible home designs, and enhanced livability that makes Pulte one of the nation’s most recognized and trusted brands in homebuilding for 70 years. Northridge’s choices of nine one- and two-story floor plans include a selection of quick move-in homes available in time for the holidays, and homesites overlooking lakes, nature preserves, and landscaped areas. Homes feature 1,850 to 4,600 square feet of living space, two to six bedrooms, two to six baths, and two- or three-car garages.

“Homebuyers are excited by the opportunity to move in and enjoy the lifestyle Pulte offers at Babcock Ranch with our current selection of quick move-in homes,” said Danielle Calamela, vice president of sales for PulteGroup’s Southwest Florida Division. “They love our two new, beautifully decorated models in Northridge, the variety of home designs, and the quality and attention to detail Pulte is known for.”

The model has four bedrooms, two full baths, and a powder room in 2,894 square feet under air. Its open floor plan is enhanced by pale tile flooring recalling wind-swept beaches and a palette of white, sand, and driftwood with gray and blue-gray undertones.

[Partnership]  Education Foundation and Sarasota Military Academy Partner

Cadets at Sarasota Military Academy (SMA) found a new addition on campus when they arrived for the new school year—through a partnership with the Education Foundation of Sarasota County, a Student Success Center is open and staffed with two Student Success Coaches. At the Student Success Center on SMA’s campus, students will work one-on-one with a Student Success Coach to identify their purpose and interests and to map pathways for potential college, military, and career pursuits after high school. Individualized services that help cadets plan for their futures include workshops on paying for college, writing essays and resumes, and more. 

Jennifer Vigne, Education Foundation president and CEO, said, “We believe we have a responsibility to support each and every student as they develop their plans beyond high school, and we are building relationships in the community to identify those who need extra support and to meet those students where they are.” Located in downtown Sarasota, SMA serves approximately 700 students in grades 9 – 12.

“Having seen firsthand the difference made at our community-wide LaunchPad4U located in downtown Sarasota, this agreement with SMA is exciting because it gives us the opportunity to customize our Student Success Center model for SMA students and to connect directly with students. Expanding students’ options will prepare them to seize the opportunity to go further in life,” Vigne said.

SMA-COL Christina Bowman, interim head of school and CEO, said, “We are excited and proud to partner with the Education Foundation in bringing this level of comprehensive support to our students and families. We believe the benefits will expand their opportunities and have a positive multi-generational impact.”

She served as the National Program Manager for two groundbreaking programs of The Educational Theatre Association followed by service as a marketing professional in secondary education. “I’m really excited to hit the ground running and help move The Players toward its centennial and beyond,” says Franxman.
