Drawer 15709 Tallahassee, FL 92317 Hello, am filing an Ethies Complaint against Broward School Board Member Debbi Hixon, State of Florida financial documents (attached) show Broward Schaol Board Member Debbi Hocon worked for eryptoourrency giant FTX. The company filed for bankruptoy on Friday, Nov 11, and CEO Sam Bankman-Fiied resigned. Published reports say Bankman-Fried lost nearly $15 billon dollars over the last week.

Some of people photagraphed with Hixon included Barbara Miller, School Board Member Lori Alhadoff and School Superintendent Vickie Cartwright. The FTX Foundation Group funded the FTX Hackathon, a contest fer Broward, Pain Beach and Miami-Dade students which offered a grand prize of one milion dollars. Information provided by FTX urged interested parties to contact Debbi Hixon at a gmail account. Democrat palitical consultant and lobbyist Barbara Milleridentified Broward School Board Member Debbi Hixon as part of her “team” that organized the FTX Hackathon and Crypto Summit in March (Post Attached). Published reports said FTX announced it was halting donations by the FTX Foundation Group amid “questions about legitimacy.” Marketwatch reported, “The senior staff of Bankman- Fried's philanthropic FTX Future Fund publicly quit Thursday night, saying that the fund could no longer operate or process grants, and that they ‘have fundamental questions about the legitimacy and integrity of the business operations that were funding the FTX Foundation and the: Future Fund.” Barbara Millers also the Aunt of FTX GEO Sam Bankman Fried.

Who will be held responsible for giving aut Scholarships to Students who were promised Scholarships like Broward Students Chad Jordan, YeWande Shitta-Bey and Alexis Buggam?
