1….’About Us

We are fathers and mothers, brothers and sisters, husbands and wives, sons and daughters. We are residents, citizens, taxpayers. We love living in Deerfield Beach. In short, we are you. And like you, we are frustrated by our local government, our elected officials, and the influence that special interest groups have over them.

So, we have established our own special interest group. Our interests? Truth. Integrity. Taxpayer protection. We vow to shine a bright light on all the things that your representatives would prefer remain in the darkness. We will work hard to uncover the truth, as shown by their actions, and not be fooled by the words that come from their mouths.

Community leaders that exhibit the proper content of character that their constituents deserve and demand will benefit from our efforts, as they should.

Those who do not will be exposed, as they should.’

Brown moved from Washington to the small oceanfront community in southern Florida after Roemer retired in 2003.

“I didn’t have the energy to start over and get another Congressman,” he said. “I decided if I wasn’t going to stay in the government and in the center of the real action, there was no reason for me to stay in Washington.”
