WHY I'M RUNNING

After college, I returned to Florida because I know what an extraordinary place this is and how important it is to stand up for the interests of my fellow Floridians. I’m deeply disturbed by the lack of leadership in Tallahassee, and, in particular, from our current state Representative. Florida should be a land of opportunity, and I will do whatever it takes to make sure it’s a fair place for all of us.

Wherever I travel in our fine state, I’m confronted by the effects of an economy that favors the super-wealthy and punishes the American worker. I witness the scourge of substance abuse, the corrosive results of systemic poverty and the long-term impacts of power concentrated in the hands of corrupt, out-of-touch elites.

I have always preferred leaders who govern with wisdom and self-restraint. I admire public servants who are humble enough to acknowledge they need to work with others to solve the challenges facing the State of Florida

THE FIGHTER WE NEED

Since I began this campaign for the Florida House of Representatives, I have tried to remember what my parents and teachers taught me -- examine the issues, listen carefully, resist the temptation to engage with unreasonable people, keep my own counsel and think for myself. 

 

These are just some of the forces which have shaped me and some of the tools I will take to our state’s capital. I’m ready to embark on a mission of public service. The Sunshine State has given me much, and it’s time for me to give back. I’m ready to serve the people with leadership that benefits all Floridians. I will be a strong voice for our shared values and work to build a state where no one gets left behind.

If I am fortunate enough to serve as your next Representative from District 22, I will fight for every Floridian's freedom to be healthy, prosperous and safe. I will work tirelessly to ensure that the greatness of our nation is affordable and accessible to all Floridians. I will do my part to help make the American Dream available to all of our fellow citizens.

I AM RUNNING TO STAND UP FOR THE COMMON MAN AND WOMAN, FIGHT FOR OUR WORKING FAMILIES AND DEFEND THE VALUES THAT WE CHERISH HERE IN FLORIDA.
