Why I'm Running

“As a first-generation American, born, raised and educated in Orlando, this community is my home. I decided to run because Washington insiders have turned their backs on the very people they swore to represent. I’m running to safeguard faith, family and freedom so generations can continue to experience the American dream.”

Key Issues

On Job Creation and Rebuilding the Economy. Our recovery from the COVID-19 crisis must focus on getting people back to work as quickly and safely as possible. I’ll always work to keep taxes low, so wages will increase thereby stimulating the economy and bringing economic stability to individuals and families, where new investment in America is possible, and jobs increase.

On Health Care. We must ensure that high quality health care remains accessible, affordable, and convenient, even for those with preexisting conditions.

On Immigration. Our immigration system is broken. We must strengthen our border and port security by building the wall, putting more border patrol agents on the ground, and using more technology.

On Veterans. We are duty-bound to ensure that our veterans have immediate access to the best health care in the world. We must also prepare our veterans for transitioning into civilian life and employment after separation.

On Education. All children should have equal access to a quality education and parents should be able to decide what education option best meets the needs of the student and their families. In addition, I believe reigning in college costs by reforming the federal loan program.
