Candidates Rally to Haitian Relief Effort
Florida (Statewide) – Human rights leader and congressional candidate, FL-23, Bernard Sansaricq has announced the formation of a coalition of candidates to rally to the aid of Haiti in the aftermath of yesterday’s devastation 7.0 earthquake. Candidate for Florida House District 91, Yomin Postelnik, will chair efforts among candidates on the state level. The effort is in tandem with the relief effort launched by congressional candidate Tom Garcia, FL-24, who traveled to Haiti this morning to begin relief efforts.
Sansaricq on the federal level and Postelnik on the state level are seeking to gather supplies and direct funds to Non-Governmental Organizations within the Port-Au-Prince area. They will also reach out to congressmen and state representatives to join in the initiative. Former Naval Commander Tom Garcia leading the ground operations in Haiti, where he is flying with a team of water purification experts to ensure the availability of drinking water, the first and most severe side casualty of the disaster.
The three leaders of this project were chosen for their varying expertise. Bernard Sansaricq is a human rights leader in South Florida, who has made it a priority to end child slavery in immigrant populations and bring running water and electricity to areas of Pahokee that are without. Garcia is a former naval officer with hands on leadership experience. He also has extensive experience in disaster relief and purification of drinking water in devastated areas. Postelnik is an expert in non-profit development, as well as media consulting.
Sansaricq said, “this is a most needed project and we hope that everyone in South Florida will participate. When I sounded the rallying cry, I did not expect any candidates to take part. While I strongly wish that were no need for this program, I was relieved when Garcia and Postelnik, two of the greatest innovators in Florida politics, agreed to take lead roles in this necessary project.”
Postelnik added, “Bernard and I have been working on a proposal to bring small business to impoverished areas within Florida by way of both federal and state tax incentives. As we seek to better the lives of all Floridians, we must also take a proactive role in minimizing disaster and eliminating the suffering that has taken place so close to Florida’s shores. We are also very fortunate to have the hands on leadership of Commander Tom Garcia. His ground efforts are nothing short of heroic. The same can be said of Bernard Sansaricq’s leadership on all issues that pertain to human rights.”
