WHEN IT COMES TO AGRICULTURE, I BELIEVE IN THE FOLLOWING CORE PRINCIPLES –
As someone born and raised in the heart of Florida’s 15th Congressional District, I have grown up with a deep respect and appreciation for our local agriculture and its importance to our community.
Our Congressional District is blessed with a diverse and rich agricultural history, and we produce some of the finest products in the entire State of Florida, and even the country.
Since being elected, I have fought for legislation that provides certainty to farmers, growers, and ranchers across Central Florida and the Tampa Bay Region.
I have also been proud to champion efforts to increase federal funding and resources to combat the deadly citrus greening disease that has devastated the citrus industry across the State of Florida.
Finally, I believe nobody appreciates our environment more than the people who rely on it to put food on our tables. Unfortunately, in recent years, federal regulations have threatened many of these vital industries. This must stop.
As your Congressman, I am committed to protecting Florida Agriculture for generations to come. I will continue to support efforts to repeal the Death Tax, to protect family farms, and to ensure the next generation has the opportunity to continue on the traditions of their parents and grandparents.
