I know what it’s like to feel helpless, scared and alone. I also know that many Floridians — working families, retirees and average everyday people all across our state — have watched Tallahassee politicians turned their backs on them.

I am running to change that.

I am running to make a difference for the hardworking families of Florida, to give a voice to those who often feel left out and to fight for Broward County.

We need someone who will stand up for Democratic ideals and for the values that made our country great…things like rewarding those who work hard, building world class schools, and fighting for those who have no voice.

I know we can change the culture of failure in Tallahassee and I know we can put people — real people — first.

THAT is why I am running.
