Issues

Fighting For Clean Water & Protecting The Environment

The most important issue for our community is the devastation of our water.  This impacts everyone: businesses forced to close, people getting sick, animals killed, and our environment destroyed.  Health and safety needs to be made a top priority to prevent these discharges.  Our work in this area is not about one party or any […]

Making Healthcare More Affordable

There’s no doubt the rising cost of healthcare caused by Obamacare has burdened American families and created a massive increase in bureaucracy resulting in less choice.  In fact, Martin and St. Lucie counties now have only one provider on the individual exchange. We need healthcare in the United States that increases choice and enables Americans […]

Ensuring Care For Seniors

I will always protect Social Security and Medicare, ensuring our government keeps the promises it has made to current retirees and those planning to retire.  I absolutely do not support cutting benefits for current retirees or anybody nearing retirement.  In order to accomplish difficult objectives in times of crisis, I know that we must work […]

Improving Care For Veterans

Every Veteran who the VA serves must be treated as the most important veteran to ever be served. Anything less is unacceptable because every veteran who has sworn the oath, worn the uniform, and offered to give the last beat of their heart cannot not be taken for granted. That’s why I support giving veterans the […]

Boosting The Economy

We must fight for working families by expanding opportunities and creating an economic environment that allows for job growth.  The explosive growth of government regulations during the previous Administration hurt both economic growth and job creation.  Making life work for families in our community starts with reducing government interference in every-day life, reducing government-imposed costs, […]

Cutting Taxes and Balancing The Budget

Our current spending is unsustainable, which is why I’ve voted against irresponsible spending packages. We must pass a Balance Budget Amendment that will force government to live within its means. The tax cuts passed have allowed you to keep more of your money, stimulated the economy, and led to more investment. Now, we must continue working […]

Stopping Brightline

I am 100% against Brightline (also known as All Aboard Florida). This is a vitally important issue in our community, as the train routes go right through the heart of our district without stopping. It would bring down property values, disrupt emergency responders, and with so many more proposed train routes, it’s going to put […]

Strengthening National Security and Rebuilding Our Military

As a former combat soldier based in Afghanistan, I have seen the enemy face to face. I also know the war we are in is not only a war of military force; it is a war of ideology. ISIS seeks to destroy western civilization, and our very way of life.  President Obama’s half-hearted, inconsistent policy […]

Supporting Our Ally Israel

As a strong supporter of the state of Israel, I believe we must continue to repair the U.S. – Israel Relationship that was strained under the previous Administration.  It was a great honor to volunteer alongside the Israeli Defense Force (IDF) following my service in the Army because the United States and Israel share common […]

Securing The Border & Fixing Immigration

We all know our immigration system, illegal and legal, is broken.  For far too long, politicians in Washington haven’t had the will to fix it. For starters, we must secure the border and prevent visa overstays.  We must also reform our legal immigration system to end arbitrary policies that continue to hurt our economy so […]

Defending The Second Amendment

I have carried a rifle and a pistol for most of my adult life and fired both in defense of every American and myself. The right to defend ourselves is God-given. It is not a right provided to us by our federal government, but rather, the right to keep and bear arms is a right the […]

Working For Safer Communities

I see my mission in Congress the same way I saw it in the military: keeping Americans safe.  That’s why I’ve made community safety, health, and strength top priorities during my time in Congress.  That means equipping our local law enforcement with the support they need to fight crime, prevent terrorism, reduce gun violence, stop […]

Defending Life

As a father of three beautiful children with a fourth on the way, I’m a strong supporter of the right to life. I believe we must defend life at every stage and protect the most vulnerable members of our society. After serving in the Army for more than 12 years, I know what it means […]

Making Education Work For Everybody

Washington should not be mandating curriculum for states.  On the contrary, each state should be a laboratory for innovation so states compete with each other for the best results.  School choice is a very important issue for me, and I will continue advocating for dollars to follow students so parents can decide which school is best for their children.

Increasing Accountability

Washington, DC wastes far too much money on programs that either don’t work, have outlived their usefulness, or should never have existed in the first place. Members of Congress love to create programs, but they don’t spend much time checking to see if taxpayers are getting their money’s worth.  I pride myself on being a taxpayer watchdog and supporting efforts to make the federal government more efficient, effective, and accountable.
