As a retired Marine Major, I'm able, willing, and ready to support and defend the Constitution, Florida's people and our precious natural resources.

We are in crisis. Too many elected officials bow to the interests of their high-dollar campaign donors and neglect the needs of their own constituents. Policies are focused on quick-buck profiteering, to the harm of so many.  

The times call for true public servants to step up, retake control and stand watch over our own public systems -- health, safety, education, environment, justice; they are NOT to be picked or plundered by private interests.  We must restore balance in Tallahassee.

As a native Floridian, wife and mom, my heart belongs here to our home; the people, lands, waters, and future of our beautiful state. There's no reason why we can't embrace justice, fairness, and responsible innovation -- green industries to develop resilient infrastructure, good jobs, and sustainable practices. Together, we can build the type of future we all want and deserve.

October-funds-fest!

Friends,

First, thank you for your generous support of our campaign.  I'm grateful for every red cent, which speaks belief and confidence in our ability to win, bring hope, and make changes throughout Florida.

As we enter a new month this weekend, I hope you can help me.

We are designating October for our big fundraising push, on all platforms and channels.  Reason being, MOMENTUM.  We need a big kick to demonstrate a viable campaign, something worthwhile for future donors to consider.  Here's how you can assist in this important stage:

1 - If you're thinking about giving any more between now and next October, please think about attaching strategic advantage to your generous support by donating this month.

2 - If you can find 5-10 or more friends who believe in the same core values as we do, please ask them to consider donating in October -- in any amount.  I'd be happy to call and speak with anyone at their convenience (email MartinforSenate14@gmail.com)!

3 - If you prefer coordinating a fundraising event of some sort, WOW, thank you!  Again, just email me to coordinate a good date for you if you'd like me to be there.  :)

I'm very open to your thoughts and ideas; not only to benefit the campaign, but to better represent your interests (residents of Senate District 14, Floridians, or simply my fellow Americans who understand we need public servants to serve the public).  Do not hesitate to contact me.

So!  Can I count on you to help us this month?  I'm sure I can.  This campaign depends on your belief that we can accomplish great things, and the energy that rises up from such a simple but core, resonating faith.

Yours,

Mel

There were Republicans, Democrats and Non Party Affiliates in the meeting that day and she raised an issue ALL of us are concerned about on the Space Coast – OUR environment and the effects of big business harm to our way life. That was the first time I met Mel. She truly loves OUR State and OUR county. I thank her for her courage to step forward and run for office.
