In order to remain free from political pressure from any source of donations to my campaign, I am announcing that the donation limit I am asking for from any donor is $10. I only need to cover the ballot access fee and advertising costs such as a few radio spots and yard signs. I intend to show from the start that I am a fiscal conservative.

There is a growing coalition of like minded candidates running for Federal and State offices in 2022. These are true Patriots who believe in values and integrity that drive this country to be the best in the world. Fighters who will defend the Constitution and ensure equal rights are afforded to everyone - fairly and justly - regardless of race, religion or political affiliation. We will work together from day one to move beyond our troubled past, heal the division and defeat any agenda that threatens our Constitutional Republic. I am proud to be a member of this Coalition, and I strongly endorse this growing list of brothers and sisters who bleed Red, White, and Blue.
The radical left love to bash the America First movement, calling it racist, bigoted and xenophobic. What it really is - the recognition that resources are limited and that the PRIORITY of expending those resources should be on the legal residents of this country.

There are two main industries that bring in the majority of the revenue in this district - NASA and Tourism (specifically the Cruise Industry). The Cruise Industry still has yet to begin recovering from the COVID pandemic, which means for the last year only NASA has been the major contributor to revenue. We need more diversity to keep our District profitable.
The average income in the District is around $57,000 annually, which isn't horrible, but we can do a lot better. Also, the poverty rate is around 12%. To me, that is unacceptable because it means there's a big gap between the higher income earners and those living at or below the poverty line. My goal is to attract higher paying jobs to the area and bring the poverty rate down below 5%.
We need to create a more skilled workforce that will entice Technology companies into this area. That means encouraging and incentivizing students to complete college and growing the number of students majoring in Technology and other STEM fields.
Did you know that Florida wasn't even being considered for Apple's new Eastern Campus? That means Florida missed out on an opportunity for jobs that started at $130,000 per year.
With the world microchip shortage, there is a huge opportunity to make microchips here in the United States. I want to make District 8 the pioneer of U.S. microchip production. This industry would open the door to more technology research being conducted right here. The possibilities are endless and translate to a huge bump in average income here in the District.
I want to hear about the issues that are important to you. I want to be YOUR voice in Congress.
I can't win this race without your help. I am attempting to unseat an incumbent, which is a tough, uphill battle. That being said, I am only asking for $10 from each donor. Your help is greatly appreciated.
There are many ways to help the campaign other than donating. Contact me if you want to help distribute flyers, put up lawn signs, or even help collect the signatures I need to get on the ballot.
Let's win this together!
