Best Watchdog: STATE REP. DWIGHT DUDLEY (D—ST. PETERSBURG)

Best Watchdog

If you reside anywhere west of center-right on the political spectrum, Florida politics can be very depressing. But there are some bright spots. We’re not highlighting Dudley just because he’s a Democrat in a sea of red who goes up to Tallahassee every year to fight the good fight. A stalwart critic of the utility industry long before it was in vogue, Dudley is a dogged fighter on the pro-consumer front. Without him, there would be no one to call out the Republican majority for its non-action on holding utilities accountable for screwing consumers.
