Making Our Senior Citizens a Priority

If you are a senior citizen living in Florida’s beautiful 12th District, you should know that I have your back. I’m watching like a hawk for any developments, trends, speeches, proposals, hearings or anything else that has to do with our senior citizens.

The two top issues for me are increasing access to top quality health care that is affordable for all, and ensuring the long-term viability of Social Security and Medicare.

I’m in Washington standing up for you in Florida, and I will continue to do so. You can count on me to be your conservative voice.

Will You Stand With Me?

Keeping Prescription Drug Prices in Check

Two things will help us keep prescription drug prices in check: innovation and competition. We are fortunate in the United States to have plenty of both.

U.S. pharmaceutical companies spend billions on research every year. We in Congress must make sure free market competition is present, and to incentivize where it isn’t.

We also will remove unnecessary regulatory burdens to:
• Clear the backlog of generic drugs waiting FDA approval
• Get new medicines to market faster
• Permit insurance companies and drug makers to work together to help lower costs

Next time you fill a prescription, remember I am working on this issue night and day. I will never back down from standing up for Florida’s best interests, and that means making the people of the 12th District a top priority in Washington.

You Can Count on Me

I remember every single day why I am in Washington, working around the clock to make you proud and our future safer and brighter. I’m focused on putting Washington back to work, holding fellow lawmakers accountable, and upholding my promise to put the safety and security of Floridiansand all Americansfirst.

And while we can’t expect everyone to agree on every issue, we should expect our Members of Congress to listen to constituents, address their concerns, and find common sense solutions to issues facing our country.

You can count on this: I will never hide from my constituents. I’ll always listen. And I’ll always fight for what’s right for this district.

Regardless of how the political tides change, or how chaotic Washington gets, my commitment to you will not waver.

That’s why, I’ve always run grassroots campaigns. I want to connect with constituents throughout the district as often as possible. It’s why my campaign has made a tradition of asking voters to help to put my name on the ballot via petition.

Would you take a moment to download this petition and return it to my campaign office? I’d very much appreciate it.

PO Box 606, Tarpon Springs FL 34688

I hope to see you on the campaign trail. We’ve got a lot of work to do and I want to know where you stand and how Congress can work on your behalf.

Thank you for allowing me to serve you.
