Fighting for Responsible, Responsive Government

VOTING RIGHTS

Our Democracy, as well as individual freedoms and opportunities, depend upon free and equitable access to voting for all citizens.
  • Restoration of full representation for all Lee County voters, by replacing countywide districts with single member districts
  • No-cost restoration of voting rights for eligible former incarcerated individuals
  • Fair and equitable redistricting based on new census, not gerrymandering
  • Distribution of polling locations, equipment and drop-off boxes based on voter population
  • Easy voter registration
  • Expanded access to early voting No-excuse vote by mail
  • Safe & convenient access to voting regardless of physical ability and language limitations

CLEAN WATER

Our lives and livelihoods require clean water at our beaches and in our rivers, canals, lakes, and homes.
  • Our livelihoods depend on our tourism-based economy, which employs 1 in every 5 people
  • Clean water is a basic human need; our lives depend on it for drinking, household use, and recreation
  • Polluters must be held responsible and accountable
  • Responsible development and investment must protect our aquifers, lakes, rivers, coastline, and water infrastructure, now and for the future
  • Full enforcement of regulations is crucial to maintain responsibly managed water resources

EQUALITY AND JUSTICE

We are all safer when the Justice system is fair and equitable.
  • Expose and eliminate police violence and aggressive behavior to our Communities of Color
  • End over-policing of minority communities
  • End Inappropriate arrests and excessive sentences for the same offenses (Sentences are 18% longer for Black people, 12% for Hispanic people)
  • Reform the cash bail system
  • End the school-to-prison pipeline Strengthen, or implement where needed, the authority and process of Citizen Review Boards
  • Decriminalize minor offenses

HEALTHCARE

Our community and our economy are stronger when everyone has equal access to affordable, quality healthcare, including mental health services.
  • Everyone has an equal right to healthcare services. The current system provides abundant opportunities for some but denies even basic access for too many.
  • Medical treatment should be equal, regardless of race or gender
  • No one should face bankruptcy or death because of lack of health insurance
  • Medicaid should be expanded in Florida
  • Decisions about access should not be dictated by the insurance industry, lobbyists, campaign donors or personal beliefs
  • Access to COVID vaccines and testing should be administered by non-partisan partnership

ECONOMIC OPPORTUNITIES

When everyone has equal access to education, good jobs, living wage, and affordable housing, we all enjoy better economic opportunities.
  • Access to economic opportunity must be inclusive, regardless of race, gender or economic circumstances
  • Economic opportunities depend on free and fair markets, private enterprise, banking and mortgage equality
  • Wages for equal work must be equal and independent of sex, race, or sexual orientation Government must ensure everyone has safe and fair access to America’s world class services
  • Medicaid should be expanded in Florida
