Frederica Wilson Cut From The Same Cloth As Her California Sisters
Is it a prerequisite for female Democrat Congress member to be blatantly insensitive, hateful, and full of bitterness? So what are the facts on Representative Wilson and who she represents? I love it when I get a chance to find out more about a Congress member, don’t you?
Frederica Wilson (D-FL) has represented the redraw District 24 area since 2011.
The district is said to be the most heavily Democratic district in both Florida and the entire Southeastern United States. The State of Florida overall receives about 33 percent of their revenue from federal assistance. There are about 750,000 people according to the 2010 census with just under 38 percent of the district being white while the rest is mostly heavily black and Hispanic. Oddly enough there were NO Native Americans noted in the district. The median income is below $45,000. The economy in the area is based a great deal on real estate, health care services, and retail trade. Technology, arts, and education innovations and projects were also noted.
The North Miami 2012 report notes that a $31 million grant for ground water remediation was issued to her district, along with a 99-year lease agreement with Oleta Partners, LLC to
convert the land into a premiere project that will benefit the residents of North Miami and
complement existing businesses in the City.
The area also upgraded bus transit shelters and other road maintenance like signage within in this period partly from North Miami funds and Dade County grants. They cited 272 new businesses moving into the area. Along with business, unions have a strong presence in the area. Plans in the 2013-2014 report showed expanding the district boundaries and upgrades being considered for the downtown area.
Interestingly OpenSecrets shows that she was worth just just under a million dollars before she decided to run for office in 2011. In 2013 something happened that spiked her net worth to just under $1.7 million which has apparently remained steady at that figure since then.
Projects Frederica Wilson has brought to the 24th District to improve their lives:
- Since 2014, Oleta Partners has donated $650,000 to the North Miami Educational Foundation to provide scholarships for North Miami students. (no mention of her name)
- Added her considerable presence and called for congressional hearing on improving Nursing Homes disaster preparedness after events pointed up flaws.
- Added her congressional pull to assist education both higher and pre-school.
- Marched with others to the Supreme Court to Demand Reversal of Anti-Refugee, Anti-Immigrant Executive Orders
- What is the odds of coincidence that she was in the car with the family to whom Trump called his condolences? and what are the odds that the family in their grief allowed her to listen in to the conversation between the President and the family? Miami Herald posted it wasn’t a coincidence.
- In 1993 founded the 5000 Role Models of Excellence Project for participating schools.
- Was contacted to get involved in Funding for School Readiness and Voluntary Prekindergarten.
- Was a 2014 Inductee in the Miami-Dade County Public Schools Alumni Hall of Fame.
- Involved in the National Black Caucus Foundation Scholarship program.
- Involved to some extent with Wasserman-Schultz on vetting and trolling principals and teachers in the area.
I am sure there is more but time to research and length restrain me in adding them.

FEC show the following campaign information:
2016 Cycle — $100,000 of her $483,779.75 total receipts came from Unions, V-Cap, Planned Parenthood, Insurance Companies in She managed to spend $392,311.07 during the cycle yet still reports $339,950.79 on hand and a debt owed of $15,250.00. She even had donations from the Turkish Coalition USA, Nat’l Broadcasters Association PAC, Seaboard Corp, McDonalds PAC, Wal-mart, CitiGroup, J P Morgan, Gridiron, Ameriprise, several sugar producing PACs, and others.
2014 Cycle — total receipts $403,132.90, ending balance $250,482.11, no loan payments, $323,000 receipts came from Political Action, Union, Insurance, Lockheed, Turkish Coalition USA, Nat’l Broadcasters Association PAC, Seaboard Corp, McDonalds, Wal-mart, CitiGroup, J P Morgan, Gridiron, Ameriprise, several sugar producing PACs, and others.
2012 Cycle — total receipts were $529,492.50, ending balance was $81,708.50 and loan repayments totaling $139,500.00, $347,000 came from Unions, Realtors, American Gaming, V-Cap, Congressional Black Caucus, Communications like Comcast and Verizon, Securities and Investment firms, Health, USA-Cuba Democracy PAC, Turkish Coalition New Jersey PAC, and others.
So, here is a woman who is so sensitive to the educational needs of young children and teens that she is deeply involved even stumping for “soul food for preschoolers.” Yet she receives donations from Planned Parenthood who we all have seen thinks far less of helping promote good practices and family assistance than money for destroying unborn babies.
She is so sensitive to gun violence that she promotes removing our Second Amendment rights but will not vote to remove dangerous gangs and drugs from her district or the nation.
She is so community conscious that she has to wait for disaster to strike in order to investigate the plight of senior citizen and nursing home businesses after a major disaster brings a problem to light. Yet she promotes children and education.
She marches on the Supreme Court like a rabid person on behalf of illegals yet is unwilling to vote for bills that might solve the problem.
She is so busy stumping for retail and real estate within her own district but can not see her way clear to help encourage job growth and revitalization nation wide.
She makes sure disaster relief is available for those she represents (especially businesses) but refuses to look into government violations, ozone emissions, or vote on anything that might help any other part of our country.
She has not as yet shown any inclination to stop or stem the tide of union solidarity and control, possibly because so many back her in campaign donations..
She comes into office with less than a millionaire status and within a three year span managed to move up in the wealth ranks of congress to be one of the higher wealth levels nearly hitting a two million mile marker all while the district is receiving lots of funds from real estate investment and grants.
Her impeccible timing makes her johnny-on-the-spot in a car with grieving parents for the exact moment in time President Trump places a call to express his condolences and she is able to hear every word spoken.
Now make up your own mind. I have given facts as they appear in reports and records. It is up to you to make your own decision.
For myself, she is a flamboyant figure flaunting her excesses through her hats and her outfits but with little substance and a lot of an eye to her own pocketbook. A hypocrite and NO Real help to anyone but those who show her the most attention.
PS Sorry for confusion in posting, lol. I don’t seem to have my timing down like she does today.
