Why I Am Running
“I believe in Florida, but we have gotten a little off track. We need a plan to bring quality, clean, and high-wage jobs to our state. We need to protect the quality of life that we all enjoy and want for our children. But I do not believe that more or bigger government is the answer. If we limit government spending, reduce costly red tape, end frivolous lawsuits, and bring a more sensible approach to our property tax system, we will grow our small businesses, attract corporate re-locations, and improve the economy for everyone. I want to work together with you to keep Florida special.”
