Who am I?
I am a former State Representative that saw redistricting prematurely end my term. I spent five of my six years serving as the Democratic Whip. In those six years, I devoted much of my attention to acting as a voice for the voiceless. This is evident in the awards I received. These included multiple awards for consumer advocacy in the realm of insurance, victim advocacy, education and Democratic organizations.
Why am I running?
I am running because I believe that I can immediately pick up where I left off. That is, offer a strong and dedicated voice for the middle class and those struggling to live in the state of Florida. Our Legislature has been bought by monied interests for so long that some do not even realize there is another option. That option is to stand up and fight for what is right.
My top three policy goals will be to stand for consumers in the face of monied interests, to advocate for our growing diverse population, both young and old, and to fight for adequate budgetary spending for our communities. I will achieve them by continuing to to speak to power every opportunity I am given. My voting record of six years proves this beyond question. Having the position of Democratic Whip for five years allowed me to be on the front line of each fight undertaken in the Legislature. My work as a board member of multiple organizations whose purpose is to lift up portion of our population in the most need underlines this point.
My DFA Values
My campaign will continue to reach out to every segment of the community I am seeking to represent. We have, and will continue to, seek out community organizations who embody this same notion. My campaign has volunteers from every race, culture and creed. All of these people believe in a oneness of community that I share with them.
My Campaign is People Powered!
I will engage the progressive grassroots the same way I always have. By going door to door and advocating my candidacy at Democratic organizations. I will attend gatherings of my community and introducing myself to every individual in order to explain my views on what our state needs to grow and evolve in a progressive manner.
