As a businessman, I believe in lowering taxes, reducing wasteful spending and eliminating excessive regulations in order to create jobs and stimulate economic growth. As Florida and our nation continue to address the challenges of COVID-19, we must work to strengthen our economy and the businesses that have been devastated by this pandemic. As a former commissioner for the City of Lakeland, I opposed tax hikes and fought to cut wasteful government spending. As we continue to work on economic recovery, I will work to find areas to cut wasteful spending and excessive regulations that burden the small businesses that drive our economy.
