As a former homocide and court reporter for newspapers in New England and Florida, I have witnessed many crime scenes and covered murder trials. The mass casualty shootings perpetrated by military style weapons must be dealt with by enacting stronger laws that would block access to bump stocks, high capacity ammunition magazines and military style weapons. While I support the second amendment and concealed carry for self protection, we must make certain that those with mental health issues and domestic violence charges, do not have access to these weapons.

Working hard to knock on doors to collect signatures and raise funds.

Getting out to speak with voters and introduce myself to them. I am finding  that water integrity, protecting the environment and making certain we are funding Florida schools to ensure we are providing a quality education for our students are the top issues for voters in State House seat 31.

Campaign created!
