I’m a wildlife ecologist and I want to use my scientific experience to make Tallahassee better.
One of the biggest challenges I have in my job is removing exotic, invasive plants that take over our natural areas and make them less bio-diverse, less effective. That’s what we have to do in Tallahassee. We have to remove the politicians who take special interest money. We want a state government that’s effective for us. We want a Tallahassee that listens to our voices.
And that’s why I’m running for Florida Senate.
The environmental issues we are facing now—toxic cyanobacteria pouring out of Lake Okeechobee into our waterways, the prolonged red tide—these are manmade problems, and the source is an ineffective state government.
I know I can turn these environmental issues around. I just need your vote on Nov. 6.
Unlike my opponent, I’m running as a candidate who does not accept money from special interests. My donors are regular citizens like you. People who want a change in Tallahassee.
And we do have to change the way our state government operates if we ever hope to solve not just our environmental problems, but also deal successfully with a range of issues from affordable housing to improved health care.
To do that, we have to weed out the invasive species of special interest money and politicians who care more about their political careers than the people they are supposed to represent.
I hope you’ll help.
