The following excerpt comes from Hukill's campaign website:
We know how we can move forward. We know what policies work to make Florida a better place to live, work, and own a business. We must lower taxes for families and businesses. We must reduce regulations on job-creators so they can spend their time innovating rather than fighting with bureaucracy. And we must invest the resources taxpayers place in government on building and keeping a world-class education system.
