TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (CNS) – After six months without a federal disaster relief bill following Hurricane Michael, a Panhandle-based group known as Michael’s Angels has taken matters into their own hands.
Over 150 Panhandle residents brought their voices and their blue tarps to the Capitol Wednesday for their rally Rally in Tally.
The non-partisan, non-profit group of women are calling on legislators for Hurricane Michael relief funding from both Congress and the State Legislature.
Lawmakers like Senator Bill Montford, Florida CFO Jimmy Patronis and Attorney General Ashley Moody lent their voices to the cause.
“Our people in North Florida, especially children, are suffering because of the gridlock in Washington. It's wrong. It's un-American. People need to start doing their job in Washington,” said Montford.
The women now have their eyes set on rallying in the nation’s Capitol.
