Since being elected in November, 2012 it has been a wild ride for me and my family. It has been my honor to represent the residents of District 59 as your State Representative.
During my first legislative session representing you in Tallahassee, we made some tremendous progress. I was able to co-sponosor several bills that were ultimately signed into law. These bills protected the victims of human trafficking and our veteran populations, increased teacher preparation and accountability and protected businesses from organized retail theft and theft of utility services, thus saving them money.
This year I am working hard to continue this work. We are continuing the fight to attempt to eradicate the problem of human trafficking in Florida, protecting homeowners’ property rights and pocketbooks and removing Florida’s death tax.
I promised you that I would work hard every day to represent you and your families and now I need your help. I am running for re-election and cannot accomplish the goal of continuing to represent District 59 without you. Will you stand with me? Will you support my campaign? I need your help to wave signs, make calls, walk neighborhoods and tell your friends why you support me. Together we can do this!
If we ever forget that we are One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.
Jobs, Economic Growth and Prosperity
The number one issue for me is to make sure we have a business environment that allows for and incentivizes job creation. Understanding that government cannot create jobs, we must continue to remove the limitations placed on our small businesses by reducing taxes and removing burdensome regulations. This is not only a business issue. The ability for us to work hard and support our families is essential.
With a state budget approaching $75 Billion, it is important to have Representatives that will work to hold our state government accountable. There are many taxes and fees that fund our government. This government belongs to you…to me…to all of us! I am always looking for opportunities to return some of these dollars to you. They are your dollars in the first place! Reducing taxes and eliminating fees are one of my highest priorities. You know how best to spend your hard earned money. Our government must be reminded whose money they have. If your tax dollars are spent efficiently, our government will be much more effective in serving our community’s needs.
It is an unfortunate fact that there are people in our state who seek to victimize vulnerable individuals for their own personal gain. This includes protecting veterans against being targeted for fraudulent financial schemes, corporations engaging in deceptive tactics and criminals who steal from businesses, ultimately costing the consumer more. I have done significant work in this area and am committed to fight these individuals at every turn. I will continue to fight to protect your consumer rights, so that you can focus on your work and family.
