ALWAYS WORKING FOR
AND CARING LEADERSHIP
ELECTION DATE : NOVEMBER 8, 2022
LET’S MAKE IT HAPPEN AGAIN!
My sincere appreciation to the residents, supporters and volunteers for their support during the August 23rd Primary Election Campaign. With the overwhelmingly votes of residents I received in the Primary Election, our campaign moves forward to the November 8, 2022 General Election as I seek to continue being a State Representative who delivers results to District 105.
I am humbled and honored to be the State Representative for Florida House District 101. During the recent 2022 Florida Legislative Session, the Legislature approved new redistricting maps and the majority of the area I now represent will become District 105 for the next election cycle. I will continue to serve residents who now live in District 101 and am delighted to meet and be a voice for the additional residents who will become part of District 105. Since I was elected, I have been working hard in the District and Tallahassee on behalf of all residents. I am very encouraged to see the outpouring of assistance by local community leaders and organizations to enhance the lives of many.
Throughout the recent Legislative Sessions, I enthusiastically sponsored and supported legislation to make our neighborhoods, schools, and businesses stronger. As a determined freshman Representative, I met with colleagues, engaged community stakeholders, and constantly walked the halls in the Capitol to fight for my constituents. Those efforts led to the passing of many of my filed bills.
Our schools need the support of our state legislature. I will work with my colleagues to implement physical security upgrades in our schools; promote learning in a positive school climate while fostering open communication among staff and students; invest in our teachers by ensuring that their salaries reflect education as a priority while providing them with the appropriate training and resources to master the art of teaching, and facilitate parent feedback and involvement.
MAKE HEALTHCARE AFFORDABLE
America needs to move from a sick-care system to a healthcare system. I plan on working with my colleagues to make healthcare spending tax free for employees; address mental health issues in our communities; advocate for Medicaid Expansion and Revision; establish a medication pool for children with cancer or chronic diseases where medications and treatments can be unaffordable even for those with insurance; and advocate for caps on drug prices to make life-saving drugs and procedures affordable.
IMPROVE PUBLIC TRANSPORTATION
Our community needs a public transportation system that is convenient and cost effective for everyone. In order to achieve this, I will advocate for the Expressway Authority to divert more money to public transit and less to highway expansion. Residents also need more incentives to use public transportation or ride bikes to work that are in safe paths. In this regard, I will launch a campaign to encourage employers to provide tax-free transportation benefits to workers, such as bus, train, light rail, van pool, etc.. We can also make our communities cleaner and healthier by using public money as incentives for green transportation technologies and to convert city buses and trucks to run on alternate low emission fuels.
ENHANCE PUBLIC SAFETY
Public safety is a priority for all communities. I support better gun control to promote safer communities. I will support more funding to deploy more police officers while also providing them with the appropriate resources and training to enhance performance, and conduct effective crime prevention programs, such as community policing, drug awareness, and gun safety.
ESTABLISH PUBLIC/PRIVATE PARTNERSHIPS
Economic growth and stability is essential to our communities. I will collaborate and partner with the private sector to assist college graduates with housing and other services, establishing hubs in various communities that can provide them with an adequate support system and boost economic development in the district. I will work to expand valuable affiliations with businesses and large corporations to create incentives for hiring and mentoring graduates as well as individuals in underprivileged sections of our district.
Affordable and adequate housing is not available to many residents in our communities. As your State Representative, I will continue to advocate and support the replenishing of the Sadowski Fund as opposed to depleting it. I will also support and/or introduce
legislation to address the housing crisis and reduce the risk of homelessness.
