Florida takes steps to protect its most vulnerable populations
Florida has been hit hard by the global economic recession. Today, more than ever before, there is a need for experienced leadership in Tallahassee. Our community needs a trusted leader who has successfully led the state out of previous budgetary crises.
My career in government leadership spans more than three decades; from the House of Representatives to the Florida Senate and the Board of County Commissioners of Miami-Dade County. During my tenure in the Legislature I chaired the Appropriations Committee and the Finance and Tax Committee where I helped guide the state from economic distress to renewed prosperity. I was chair of the Miami-Dade County Commission for 6 years.
I have long supported ethics legislation, government in the sunshine and the rights of women and the elderly and know that I can make a difference for the people of Florida and District 35.
I’m asking for your help to bring my leadership and experience back to the Florida Senate.
I ask you to cast your vote - early, absentee or on Election Day - for the future of our community and State. I promise I’ll bring honesty, integrity and a lifetime of valuable experience to the Senate and, together, we’ll work though these troubling times.
