I’m a fifth generation Floridian and proud to be born and raised in the Sunshine State.  But, for millions, Florida isn’t just a place—it is a choice: A choice for lower taxes, limited government, personal freedom, and quality of life. 

I’ve built businesses from the ground up.  I’ve balanced a hundred billion dollar budget.  But the four words that make me proudest are these: I am a farmer.

For too long, too many politicians told us to vote for them and settle for less. They say it’s either low taxes or great schools.  But I know we can have both. They say it’s either family farms or clean water. But I know we can have both. They say it’s either Florida’s consumers or Florida’s businesses. But I know we can protect both.

Our problems are real.  The stakes are high.  And the solutions require someone who knows how to roll up his sleeves and get the job done. As a lifelong farmer, I know that the seeds we plant today – for our families, our businesses, and for our communities – are essential to tomorrow’s opportunities to grow a stronger Florida.

“I’m not a career politician.  I’m a farmer, a father, and a businessman.  I’d rather solve a problem than start a fight—but I’m not afraid of one either.”
