A.J. Brent is a sharp contrast to Socialist David Maynard for Soil and Water post

From the Soin and Water Conservation District Group 1 race poses a stark contrast between A.J. Brent and David Maynard.

SPUSA_logo Socialist Party workers of world uniteMaynard, touting his 2010 victory and role revealed his Socialist Party alliance: “David Maynard was elected to one of the seats on the Hillsborough County Soil and Water Conservation Board.  He received 84,578 votes and won his 3-way race with 40.0% of the vote.  He is a dues-paying member of the Socialist Party USA, although during the campaign he was, and is, a registered Democrat.” (Source)

There is no derogatory attack here, Maynard’s post is a point of praise, even making the Socialist Party of Florida’s wiki page.

“Hillsborough County has five soil and water conservation districts, established by the Florida Legislature in 1946, which receive about $250,000 a year from the county….Most of that funding pays the salaries and benefits of three full-time staff, including two engineers who conduct irrigation audits for farmers, and educational outreach such as the annual “environmental Olympics” and a poster contest for public school students,” summarized by TBO before getting to the 2014 candidate opposing Maynard.

“It’s a total waste of taxpayer dollars,” says A.J. Brent ahead of his 2010 campaign bid.

Brent said county agencies such as the Southwest Florida Water Management District and Tampa Bay Water operate similar conservation programs and many landscaping companies offer cheap irrigation audits.
If elected, he wants to eliminate its funding.

“Our property taxes shouldn’t be used to judge poster contests,” Brent said.

A Socialist versus a man who wants to cut funding for the group he’d be a member of….fascinating.
