As Your Congressman I Will
As Your Congressman I Will
  • Work for you. Throughout my entire term. You will be my sole interest. I won’t be raising money for my next campaign or another office. 
  • Continue my lifelong fight to level the economic playing field for people like you and me, and to make government accountable. 
  • Improve and expand our nation’s Health Care system, to make it more affordable. I support a “single payer” system. 
  • Protect Florida waters from pollution, over pumping and water poaching by overpopulated counties. 
  • Protect the 2nd Amendment and the safety of our citizens by recognizing that such a consequential right comes with grave responsibility. 
  • Support free, high-quality public education through the community college level. 
  • Keep our promises to veterans when they muster out of service. Provide health and mental health care if needed, and job and educational support. Offer Medicare option. 
  • Support a strong military that can defeat our 21st century enemies and protect us from new threats as they arise. 
  • Support campaign finance reform to get covert dark money out of politics. Overturn Citizens United. The democratic process must belong to the people. 
  • Raise the minimum wage so that a person working 40 hours a week does not have to live in poverty. 
  • End corporate welfare and support transparency for all government corporate subsidies.
When I’m elected to Congress, I’ll make all of my decisions  based on FACT, not ideological fiction.
 
I’ll work to chart the best course for our country, and for the families, communities and businesses in the 2nd Congressional District. 

I will do that without regard to the corrupting influence of big-money special interests. I’ll be working for my fellow North Floridians, not outside groups with agendas.
