Please describe your positions on the legislative responsibility for protecting the public interest in the Education, Health Care and Criminal Justice systems. Do you have any specific proposals to improve these systems? (limit 150 words)
We need to fully fund education, we should honor the voters decision to limit class size amendment, stop teaching to tests. Access to healthcare in imperative, we are a working community and most don’t have any coverage. We need to consider a less expensive tracking system for non-violent crimes.
Over 500,000 working poor Florida citizens remain without health insurance. Would you support tapping federal dollars to cover these people? If not, what kind of plan do you support? (limit 150 words)
An estimated 300,000 people died from gun violence between 2004 and 2014. Here at home in Orlando, the June 12 nightclub shooting saw 49 people killed, and 50 more wounded. Do you support or oppose a state ban on assault weapons and/or more thorough background checks? (limit 150 words)
Yes, but with the power of the NRA that wont happen. I would like to propose a ban on cop killing bullets to start with. In addition we need to close the gun show loopholes, and require background checks.
