Why I'm Running

I am running for office to move Florida forward. The actual youth unemployment rate is 15.8%; the average UCF student graduates with $20,000 in debt; and insurance costs have increased by 39% for individuals and 56% for families since February 2013. I am concerned that if this becomes the new norm, the innovation and potential of the millennial generation will be stifled by chronically low expectations. The time-tested principals of limited government and personal responsibility, while being in sharp contrast to the Democrats’ failed policies, will move Florida forward and improve the lives of its diverse citizens.
