I Believe in the American Dream.
I also know that this Dream, my Dream, and your Dream, is in danger because the politicians in Washington will not work together on simple solutions to balance the budget and protect the way of life that we have come to enjoy.
I am running for State Representative because I want the American Dream of owning a home, owning a business, and living in freedom and security to be just as sure for my children and grandchildren as it is for me today.
I know that many of the problems that we face must be dealt with in Washington, but there is a very important role for our State Legislators to play in the process.
I pledge to you first of all that as your next State Representative, I will do everything in my power to help lead the way by making sure that Florida’s budget is balanced and by making sure that we are creating an environment for small businessmen and women to succeed. Florida can be an example to Washington.
Second, I pledge to you that I will work to bring resources back home – not pork from Tallahassee or Washington – but real resources. Every year, we send our hard earned money to Congress, only for them to turn around and give it back in community assistance programs that are tied up in red tape and bureaucracy. We know better how to help our communities, and I want to be a part of the generation of leaders that transferred responsibility for the safety net from Washington back to the states and local governments. We can help more people more responsibly and return our hard earned tax dollars back to our communities, but we’ve got to get Congress and the nameless, faceless federal agencies out of the way.
