It will be my privilege when re-elected to continue striving to prioritize the issues most important to you, my constituents: public education, affordable healthcare, small businesses, healthy environment, and sensible gun legislation.
There is another issue that is an umbrella to the others, and I will continue to defend it if I am re-elected: Home Rule. I first noticed the increasing attack on our local governments when I served on Maitland City Council. The state took greater control over our local government making it harder to protect our local tree canopies and waterways; to support and protect our public schools; to make significant strides in affordable housing; and to create stability for our small businesses.
Our local officials serve closest to us working directly with citizens to build the vision of where we live, work, and play. State lawmakers should not shut us out from this process. It is time to take back our government and fight for our community. This is not my campaign, it’s everybody’s.
Join me to Keep Joy in the House keeping smart balanced government and common sense in district 30.
