Over the past several months I have given great consideration to running for the State Legislature as your next State Representative for District 100. Today, I am pleased to formally announce my candidacy and I hope to count on your support.
I know the issues we must tackle and with the encouragement and support from leaders across South Florida and our State, I can assure you that I will work to properly represent you and our community.
As your future Representative in Florida’s House District 100, I will continue to protect families while fighting for efficient, effective and ethical government. My time in public service has been focused on making government work for the people and protecting those who need our help the most.
Our seniors deserve someone who will protect them against cuts to Medicaid and the social services they need. As a local elected official, I voted to increase the low-income senior’s additional homestead exemption and expanded social services by brokering a partnership between the City of Hallandale Beach and the Jewish Community Services of South Florida.
We must also invest in our future. As a product of public education, I know how crucial it is to give teachers the proper resources for them to educate our students and prepare them with the necessary skills for the workforce.
Our legislature needs someone who has a proven track record of standing up for social justice and equality. I was proud to champion an historic first-in-the-nation initiative to bring tax equity to our domestic partner employees in Hallandale Beach. Social justice is a deep seated value my parents bestowed in me at an early age. Equal pay for equal work, livable wages and individual rights are not talking points or bargaining tools. They are the fundamental principles of freedom and justice this nation was founded on.
These are just some of the reasons why I have decided to run to represent you in House District 100. South Florida is my home and it has given me so much. I am proud to serve the Hallandale Beach community and I humbly ask for your support so that I can continue to serve you at the State level.
I invite you to join me in this campaign by making a contribution today. You are crucial in establishing a campaign that will ensure you have a strong candidate representing you.
