AFP-FL to host summer town hall series with Ron DeSantis

Americans for Prosperity-Florida is hitting the road to energize activists about tax reform.

The grassroots organization is scheduled to hold “Un-Rig the Economy” town hall meetings in Miami, Fort Lauderdale and Orlando in August and September to talk with activists about the current situation in Washington, D.C. and energize them for what’s to come. The AFP-FL team will be joined by local leaders and members of the federal affairs team to discuss the need to enact comprehensive tax reform.

Rep. Ron DeSantis, a Ponte Verde Republican, is scheduled to join AFP-FL at each of the town hall events. DeSantis, who is believed to be mulling a 2018 gubernatorial bid, is expected to discuss how Congress can act to fix the tax code.

“AFP has been leading the charge on calling for Congress to un-rig the American economy,” said Chris Hudson, the state director for AFP-FL, in a statement “We hope the rest of the Florida delegation will join Congressman DeSantis in fighting back against the current rigged tax system by joining our effort to pass pro-growth tax reform. Americans want a system that’s based on simplicity, efficiency, equitability, predictability, and creates no new burden on taxpayers. We want to speak directly to Floridians who want to help fix our broken tax code.”

The summer town hall series kicks off on Aug. 24 with a town hall in Miami, followed by a town hall scheduled on Sept. 19 in Fort Lauderdale and Sept. 28 in Orlando.


  1. This man has yet to do a town hall for his constituents in FLAGLER county..rubber stamp Ron

  2. Americans for Prosperity (AFP), founded in 2004, is a conservative political advocacy group in the United States funded by David H. Koch and Charles Koch. As the Koch brothers’ primary political advocacy group, it is one of the most influential American conservative organizations. Their idea of tax reform is to lower taxes on the 1%. No thanks, Ron.

  3. The man is a Palm Coast resident Representing Florida’s Sixth Congressional District, please correct this error.

  4. Both the headline and the article are misleading: the meetings will not be held in DeSantis’s district, and they are intended for his supporters. They are NOT “Town Halls”. Also, Americans for Prosperity (AFP) is funded by the Koch brothers, and is NOT a “grassroots advocacy group”.
