WELCOME TO MY WEBSITE
where I will share my views and give you a chance to know me better. While I am new to politics with a capital “P”, my civic engagement has been lifelong. Having lived in District 80 for 22 years, I know our issues. Now I can see that I must work within the political arena in order to get meaningful reform. Please know that I will fight for the causes and issues that will improve the lives of the people in our community. I believe in people and know that we are capable of so much better. Sometimes you may not agree with me but I believe that mostly you will. I will listen to your issues and concerns and will always be transparent and honest when expressing my views. Together, we will build a better future.
Please join me on this exciting run from the 80th District to the State House.
Improve Water Quality
Clean water is crucial to our farming industries and tourism, as well as for residents. Dirty water is stunting Florida’s safety and economy. We must build more surface retention ponds, protect our ground water, prevent saltwater incursion, launch septic tank testing, ban fracking, and clean up Lake Okeechobee.
Everyone has a right to affordable health care, and that right protects all of us. The Corona virus pandemic makes it clearer than ever that when one person is sick, our entire community is at risk and impacted. We must expand health care access by expanding Medicaid, which would guarantee health care for an additional 800,000 Floridians.
The time to stabilize the climate has not passed, the time to act is now! We need new incentives for solar development, guarantee a reasonable energy buy-back rate, mandate solar collection and battery storage systems on new construction and expand development of a charging station system across the State.
The American Dream promises equality for ALL and yet, many of us continue to face discrimination. It is time to pass the Equal Rights Amendment, expand Medicaid, strengthen workplace protections that prevent discrimination in hiring and firing practices, and protect contraception and reproductive freedoms. Most importantly, every individual must be treated fairly, professionally, and humanely when involved with law enforcement.
