We lived in Lakeland (Polk County) from 1979 to 2005. I visited some friends in 2012. The area has gone to hell IMO. I wouldn’t move back there for love nor money.

Adding to my files. Did this happen in a Democrat area?
Part of the county is gerrymandered into the Dem area west of Orlando for Congressional purposes, but Polk County is mostly solid red/GOP.
