Tea Party Fort Lauderdale Founder Danita Kilcullen has died. Ms. Kilcullen lost her battle with cancer over the weekend. Since 2009, Kilcullen has been the leading Tea Party voice in south Florida.
While we did not always agree with her political views, Danita was a staunch fighter of local corruption. Whether it was rallies on street corners, meetings at loca restaurants, judicial forums or recruiting school board candidates, Kilcullen knew the best place to make real changes were in her own backyard.
Danita was eager to share our stories with her vast email network. She appreciated a hard-hitting story even if she didn’t agree with it. Danita was always quick to call with compliments. She will be missed.
Rest in peace, Danita.
