2017 and 2018 Committee Assignments

During the 2017 and 2018 legislative session, I served our community as a member on the following committees:

  • Agriculture & Natural Resources Appropriations Subcommittee
  • Agriculture & Property Rights Subcommittee
  • Government Accountability Committee
  • Health Innovation Subcommittee
  • Oversight, Transparency & Administration Subcommittee

This election we have an opportunity to stand up and fight back against those who wish to see us go backwards. There is an old proverb that says “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together”. Since I began my career as a public servant on the Daytona Beach city commission, I have always believed that if we are to accomplish great things, we must do so together.
