It is too easy for companies and bureaucrats to make decisions without caring what people think. My career has focused on lifting the voice of people to be on the same level as CEOs and government officials. That is why I am running as a Democrat for Florida Congressional District 19 - to bring the voice of the people of Southwest Florida to Washington.
COMMUNITY: HAPPY, HEALTHY & CONNECTED
Putting My Experience
A Southwest Florida community where everyone is happy, healthy, and connected – a place where the sun shines on everyone
Bring the voice of Southwest Floridians to speak truth to power
Families go bankrupt everyday trying to keep their loved ones alive in our broken health care system. Our waters are polluted, and hurricanes and flooding threaten our homes and businesses. I am willing to think together with all leaders and act on the issues that most affect us. I’ve researched and published on community development and governance and am part of the Department of Political Science and Public Administration at Florida Gulf Coast University. I have the desire, knowledge, and skills to craft meaningful and effective policy that will improve the lives of Southwest Floridians for the long run. I’ve dedicated my entire career to making communities and organizations work better to reach their goals. These are assets that Congress desperately needs right now.
Having a mom and a business owner represent Southwest Florida in Congress means your voice will be heard. I live here. My kids were born here, go to school here. I’ve worked tirelessly to listen to what people here think and want for our community and I’ll continue to do that as your rep. I will not sell out my values and our community to enrich big companies, big donors, and the political elite. I will work for you to craft policy to keep your family safe, to make sure there are good jobs and strong local businesses, and our beloved Florida environment is clean. I promise to protect, promote, and preserve.
