Doris Weatherford has claimed this slogan was created by George Sheldon in protest to reforms that he disagreed with. Sheldon was a campaign aide to Governor Reuben Askew in Tampa in the 70s.
Sheldon’s connection to the motto stems from his work in the mental health field and his work by reforming the foster care system when he ran the administration for Children and Families within the Department of Health and Human Services in Tallahassee.
Weatherford teaches at the University of Florida and is a published author of women’s history.
