About Us

About The Voice of Charlotte County Podcast

We are a group of engaged county residents that have the passion and tenacity to investigate and expose all things political. We promote local business and welcome community engagement. Our residents need to reengage our elected officials holding them accountable for every penny spent ensuring it is spent wisely.

As many know a new “voice” of the people and “for” the people is now among us.

We are using the “streaming” Website medium as our method to reach the Charlotte County residents. This is not new, but while we have our newspaper, TV coming from other counties, along with our social media sites such as “Next Door,” none if capable of allowing for more than a few lines of discourse.

Some will not allow you to speak to your concerns and some will keep your “Posts” from being seen in a timely manner. This site will not be one of a few speaking to or for many.

It will be a place for everyone to speak to legitimate arguments, concerns, problems, failed solutions and high expenses. It will not be about national problems, unless what is done nationally will affect our part of Paradise.

We will deal with local concerns, the local government, the school board and its direction, among others.

Where kudos are in order, they will be given. Where criticism is given, it will be given with explanations as to the facts.

For those who object, they will be given an opportunity to voice their opinion either by email, text, voice or in person, online in full view by your fellow citizens. We encourage ALL to participate.

The site will have its growing pains, but will soon be the “GO-TO” site for all the news that affects you and your pocketbook.

We are looking for those who can and will report on what is in the public interest. We have items that need immediate attention, so

let us get started.

David Kalin is a lifelong conservative who believes and advocates what our founding fathers created, a constitutional republic that protects the individual rights and freedoms of every citizen.

 Dave has lived in Florida, Texas, Pennsylvania and Washington DC. He grew up as an IBM kid, learning basic programing, electrical engineering and electrical theory at a very young age.  He started out working for Martin Marietta where he gained extensive knowledge in communications and space navigation systems.  He took a job in the construction industry working on large construction projects and was quickly promoted to a supervisory position, overseeing major projects.  Due to a construction accident Dave chose to go back to the IT Telecom industry in the banking industry.  Dave then opened his own business which served a four-state area and was very successful.

Dave rode the Y2K wave and in 2002 sold to a competitor and set out to open a small farm.  He recently retired from the airline industry and currently serves as a part-time minister and farmer.

Dave entered the political arena in Pennsylvania and was elected as a Township Commissioner.  During his term, one of his greatest achievements involved negotiations with the union to transfer from guaranteed pensions, which were bankrupting the local municipality (and the state) pensions, to a 401k pension.  This new union contract was a ground breaking landmark initiative within the State of Pennsylvania.  It has been adopted and instituted by several municipalities and counties saving taxpayers millions of dollars in property taxes.

 Dave have been married twenty years and raised four children with his youngest currently a senior at Charlotte High School.  Fatherhood has been one of his greatest joys and life experiences.  In 2015, Dave’s wife and he decided to seek a better life in Florida, away from Pennsylvania due to the liberal ideology and policies that continue to have negative and devastating results of high taxes, lack of growth and opportunities.  They focused on southwest Florida but it was Charlotte County that captured their hearts and they knew instantly this was the place that would become their hometown.  Dave and his family live in Charlotte County district two.  His family has a small gentleman’s farm, with his focus is as an apiarist (bee keeper) and his family is excited to expand their hydroponics farming which provides organic food quickly with higher production rates and is more sustainable then traditional farming methods.  The Kalins are opening a farmers market on their farm providing fresh products to the community.  Dave’s family has planted its roots and they hope to live out the rest of our lives surrounded by the beauty of Charlotte County.

 David Kalin ran for County Commissioner in the 2022 elections and is currently announced and running for Charlotte County Supervisor of Elections.
