Issues vital to our well-being are decided in Tallahassee. Things like hurricane preparedness, solar power initiatives, gun legislation, and school funding. I believe legislators should push back against special interests and create policy based on objective facts, not fake news.
I support life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. To me, this encompasses safe schools delivering exceptional educations that allow our children to compete in an ever-changing global environment and contribute to our communities. It is a vibrant and diversified economy. It is addressing environmental challenges as the staggering risk — both financially and to our ways of life — that it is. It is ensuring that the right to vote is valued, protected, and held sacred. It is guaranteeing that those who have been incarcerated once again obtain their constitutional right to vote. It is ensuring that our neighbors and loved ones receive quality healthcare. It is tackling opioid addictions head-on. It is enjoying the equal rights, personal autonomy, and freedoms of expression and association that make us Americans.
