Broward Bulldog has a new name, Florida Bulldog.
The change recognizes what you already know – that the Bulldog’s brand of nonprofit, nonpartisan watchdog news coverage often extends beyond Broward County.
In 2014, we expanded our investigative coverage to Miami-Dade. We reported on the county’s new heroin epidemic, and the dearth of treatment beds for addicts. More recently, we disclosed how new Miami Congressman Carlos Curbelo’s campaign failed to properly disclose contributions from political action committees, while also accepting thousands of dollars from individuals tied to companies that benefitted from his vote while he was on the school board.
Other coverage has focused on issues of interest across the state. For example, how Florida’s flawed “blind trust” law failed to prevent Gov. Rick Scott from knowing where his money is invested; and an analysis of the governor’s investments that found he owned a stake in a company that’s building a controversial $3 billion natural gas pipeline in north and central Florida.
On the national front, we continue to report developments regarding the FBI’s once-secret investigation in Sarasota of a Saudi family with ties to both the royal family and the 9/11 hijackers.
2015 promises to be another interesting year.
Our expanded coverage will provide stories you need to know about our South Florida region, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. Our new, primary URL is www.floridabulldog.org, but you can still find us at www.browardbulldog.org. What won’t change is Florida Bulldog’s dedication to report news you can sink your teeth into.
