• A Democrat for Small Government:
Adam is an advocate for local government control. He wants to end the attacks on small government by legislators backed by special interest groups. Many of our current State Representatives have been pushing for a concentration of power in Tallahassee, even though it is their job to speak up for the people they represent. The concept of Home Rule, or the ability for small, local governments to govern themselves, is an issue near and dear to Adam. Let's bring power back to the people!
• A Small Business Proponent: As a small business owner himself, Adam understand how taxes and other regulations affect small business owners. He believes that when tax cuts are available, small business should be the ones receiving them - not corporations that do not return the investment to the local economy. Adam will advocate for small businesses in any way possible.
• Clean Water Funds Our Economy: Florida's natural environment is something that we all appreciate. Not only is it something that we can enjoy for our own recreation, but Florida's beautiful environment is also what funds our economy. Florida's economy is reliant on tourism, and without clean water, people would not continue to come back to Florida every year. Adam has spent much of his life cleaning up Florida's waterways with a hands-on approach that is unique to politics.
• Caring for Our Elders: Florida is full of retirees, as well as natives, that often live on a fixed income as they get older. Adam wants to do whatever he can to make it possible for seniors to stay in their homes instead of moving into more expensive assisted-living facilities.
• State Energy Policy: Living in the Sunshine State, it makes no sense that our residents cannot easily afford renewable energy systems - especially solar. Adam would like to see more competition in our energy markets that would lead to a lower cost for our consumers.
• Marijuana Legalization: Though an overwhelming number of Floridians voted for the legalization of Medical Marijuana in the 2016 election, little has been done to make this a reality throughout the state. Taxing and regulating marijuana would be a great boost for our state economy, and a way to stop wasting resources that are spent on enforcement and imprisonment of marijuana users.
Born and raised in southern St Johns and Flagler Counties, I am as much a part of the community as you are. As a small business owner, entrepreneur, environmental educator, and your neighbor, I am uniquely qualified to lead our district and communicate your voice at the state capitol.
As a citizen, a husband and a father, I am morally obligated to help protect our communities for future generations. I want to make sure meaningful opportunities are plentiful and diverse in our state without compromising the foundation we were built on.
