2018 Florida Governor Campaign Bio

The requirements for Florida Governor require a 7-year residency. By fall I will be a 16-year resident of Florida. I've had a unique history during my time here, as I've witnessed the side effects of unaffordable property values, the loss of options resulting from overdevelopment, and the impact of the economic crisis make a story like mine no longer possible. I've seen up close and personal the ways that Miami is not the most welcoming place for younger people.
