Caring for our youth:

According to the United States Census Bureau, twenty-two percent (22%) of Orange County’s population is under the age of eighteen. As our children’s intellectual and mental safety is under attack by the State, it is more important than ever to foster a safe place for our youth. To this end, I am setting up a short-term Advisory Board with Central Florida’s best children’s advocates to identify short term and long term policies which will improve quality of life for our youth. I will prioritize these issues at the Board level and bring new policies forward this year.
