 +
 +
'''Agriculture'''
 +
*Excerpt: "We need to continue to grow our agriculture base and allow our farmers to farm. We should protect the greenbelt classification of farms and do everything in our power to keep this pillar of our state’s economy strong."
 +
'''Jobs'''
 +
*Excerpt: "Government and the public sector should not be in the business of creating jobs. Instead, the government should create a pro-business environment that allows the job market to thrive."
 +
'''Taxes'''
 +
*Excerpt: "I will fight to lower your taxes and put your hard-earned money back in your pocket where it belongs. Property taxes, corporate taxes, and fees of every kind have become too heavy of a burden on taxpayers."
 +
'''Health Care'''
 +
*Excerpt: "I am against the mandated health care that is soon to be forced on people across the country. Instead, we should be investing in medical schools to spur research and help create the best doctors possible."
 +
'''Infrastructure'''
 +
*Excerpt: "If we are to become a manufacturing state again, the state cannot afford to forget about infrastructure. Our ports needs to be able to accept the largest ships and our roads should be in a state to handle more driving."

Scorecards

See also: State legislative scorecards and State legislative scorecards in Florida

Legislative scorecards are used to evaluate elected public officials based on voting record. Some scorecards are created by political advocacy groups with a focus on specific issues, while others are developed by newspapers and are broad in scope. Scorecards are meant to be used as a tool for voters to have a quick picture of whether their views align with a particular legislator's record.

Because scorecards can be specific to particular issues or general to a state’s legislative term, for example, each report should be considered on its own merits. Each entity that publishes these reports uses different methodologies and definitions for the terms used.

An overview for scorecards in all 50 states can be found on this page. To contribute to the list of Florida scorecards, email suggestions to scorecards@ballotpedia.org.

Please see our writing guidelines if you would like to add results from an individual scorecard to this legislator's profile.
